To celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, Patrón Tequila presents Art of Patrón X Day of the Dead at the UNIT London in Mayfair on 2nd November.
Known as Dia de Muertos in Mexico, Day of the Dead is a celebration of life, remembering the dead and honouring ancestors with love and respect. With every celebration comes a toast. What better way to toast this colourful and authentic Mexican festival than with Patrón – the world’s finest, ultra premium tequila.
To help commemorate this joyful celebration of life, the evening will play host to Day of the Dead inspired Patrón Tequila cocktails and masterclasses, live art installations, and make-up stations, alongside a top DJ with Mexican heritage playing epic latin beats. Art of Patrón will take you on an immersive and colourful journey of authentic Mexican heritage, through the lens of the world’s finest tequila.
Guests will enjoy specially-created Patrón Tequila Day of the Dead cocktails.
