Agave Week - between 13th and 18th May - consists of one entire week of events and promotions around Tequila, Mezcal and Sotol. It's the first time that anything of this kind has been attempted in France and it sure is ambitious.
Anyone who's anyone in the Mexican-spirits-world will be in Paris and hotspots such as the Candelaria, La Mexcaleria, La Perla and Hacienda del Sol are participating.
Monday 13th is Trade Day... with a trade tasting from 11am until 6pm with a dozen producers, Cantine California setting up shop and offering top-notch burgers and tacos, and a VIP evening afterwards sure to continue until the early hours.
During the rest of the week, Candelaria are doing a special "Mai Tai" cocktail - but using Del Maguey Mezcal - on Wednesday night; the bar La Mexcaleria is going all acoustic on us with a Mexican guitarist; La Perla are doing a promotion on Ocho Tequila and the restaurant Hacienda del Sol are offering a super deal with their specially concocted "Specialities of Jalisco" menu with Tequila pairings.
