Patron Assemble_01_228_fsmall

This October, Patrón Tequila partners with Assemble London and Moniker Art Fair to create a unique dining experience for the epicurious and culturally inquisitive during East London’s most influential art fair. 

In a banquet based on Patrón Tequila’s heritage of craft and creativity, the Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina will see a carefully curated menu of premium Mexican dishes paired with five mini Patrón-inspired custom-made cocktails. With hour-long seated slots able to book throughout Moniker Art Fair, the Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina will be the only dining experience of its kind at the fair.

Situated in the heart of the action at Moniker Art Fair in the Old Truman Brewery, London from Thursday 15th October – Sunday 18th October, guests will be surrounded by works of art while enjoying the culinary arts.

The Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina will exhibit canvasses from one of the world’s best street artists Nick Walker, and two exclusive feature chandeliers by Cristina Guitan, which will also retail at the fair, and have been crafted using the iconic Patrón bottles.

Drink, eat and immerse yourself the world of art at The Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina.

Following a strong resurgence in London’s street and premium Mexican food scenes, as hailed by Dominic Cools-Lartigue, Founder of Streetfeast and Assemble, the Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina aims to unite the two in a fine-dining experience. With an exciting tasting menu designed by experimental Mexican Chef, Edson Diaz-Fuentes, best known for his recent menu innovation for Wahaca, the five courses including Guacamole with edible Grasshoppers, Rib Eye Tacos  and slow cooked Lamb Barbacoa wrapped in agave leaves, fuse traditional techniques and ingredients with modern culinary styles and flavours.

To provide the perfect accompaniment, there will be Patrón cocktails created by Dan Redman-Hubley, Patrón Tequila Brand Ambassador, which will be served alongside each dish. Dan has a strong mixology background and creative passion for flavour and quality ingredients, Redman comments:

“The food menu has been developed with a nod to Patrón’s provenance and brand values i.e. slow roasted lamb in agave leaves so for a similar reason that we slowly steam our agave for 79 hours, because the result is more flavoursome that way. I developed a cocktail menu with both contrasting and complimenting flavours to Edson’s dishes, under the concept that if it grows together, it goes together. ”

Now in its sixth year running, Moniker Art Fair is London’s premiere event for contemporary art rooted in urban culture. With an unprecedented approach to combining the very best underground artists and established talent, Moniker is both a high profile art fair and consumer exhibition.

Matthew Sykes, Patrón Tequila Marketing Director EMEA, comments:

Patrón Tequila is made with the upmost care in the Hacienda Patrón distillery in Mexico. Every bottle touches at least sixty hands during its process, from harvesting the agave to the individually signed glass bottles. The tequila itself may be the most obvious element in our craft story, but we are also very proud of our unique pieces of art that are our bottles, made in Mexico by skilled glass artisans.

“Through Art of Patrón Cocktail Cantina we celebrate art in many forms, works of art, including those inspired by the art our bottle, the culinary arts and the art of mixology. The collaboration with Moniker Art Fair and Assemble is a UK first, and one that is based on a shared passion for flavour, craftsmanship and art.”
