PALOMA WEEK

THE UK’S FIRST EVER PATRÓN PALOMA WEEK KICKS OFF ON 23 AUGUST

 

PATRÓN tequila marks a new occasion on the UK’s calendar celebrating Mexico’s favourite cocktail across London and Manchester

 

Praised for its refreshing and vibrant character, the Paloma cocktail has most recently emerged as a popular menu fixture beyond Mexican borders, across bars around the world and the UK alike.

Now, PATRÓN tequila marks a celebratory week in honour of Mexico’s favourite cocktail with the inaugural PATRÓN Paloma Week taking place in London and Manchester from 23 to 30 August 2021. With some of the best bars across the two cities serving their own special take on the PATRÓN Paloma, alongside complimentary food pairings on selected nights, the PATRÓN Paloma Week is set to make the tequila and grapefruit serve the official cocktail of summer.

Considered Mexico’s real treasured drink, the origin of the Paloma (meaning Dove) seems to be rooted in the iconic town of Tequila, located in Jalisco, the same state that is home to PATRÓN Tequila. The legendary Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner of the beloved La Capilla bar, is most often credited for its creation. The Paloma has recently been referred to as the trendiest cocktail of summer 2021 by The Sunday Times.

As simple as distinct in taste, the PATRÓN Paloma is a refreshing mix of PATRÓN Reposado tequila and premium grapefruit soda. On top of serving this flavoursome long drink, bars have been called to join in the PATRÓN Paloma Week with each one having a signature twist, giving bar-goers an exciting selection of innovative variants to taste and enjoy this summer.

Participating venues include London’s Hacha, Café Pacifico, Homeboy, Annabel’s, Satan’s Whiskers, Maison Bab and London Cocktail Club, Bethnal Green, plus a selection of bars offering a total 3,000 complimentary PATRÓN Palomas on the DUSK app.

In Manchester, bartenders from Freight Island, Ducie Street Warehouse, Motley, Crazy Pedros, El Capo, Washhouse, Cottonopolis and Luck Lust Liquor and Burn, will be creating their bespoke PATRÓN Paloma.

Claire Presland, Brand Director for PATRÓN tequila, Western Europe and Australia, commented: “The Paloma has long been a favourite cocktail in Mexico and at PATRÓN. With tequila being now appreciated for its premium and versatile essence, it is a perfect time to celebrate the creations that have contributed to its leading status among spirits. The inauguration of a new occasion such as the PATRÓN Paloma Week will give people the opportunity to further discover and embrace this trendy cocktail in all the creative variations designed by the talented UK bar trade. We cannot wait to see this week become a much-awaited moment for cocktail lovers in the years to come.”
