Felix mentioned the activities that will take place during this year’s festivities, as well as the focus that they will seek to reflect during the commemoration:

“This year it seems to me that it will highlight National Tequila Day because people still do not recognize this day March 11 as Tequila Day,” said the president.

He also mentioned that different activities will be sought during the week, where mixologists will be brought to show creations with the drink, in addition to traditional tequila tastings.

In Puerto Vallarta, tourists arriving at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport will be greeted with an artistic display of tequila by artist Juan Carlos Santoscoy.

He emphasized that it fills him with pride to know that Tequila, which today is part of the Mexican identity, continues to be the most-sold drink in Mexico; almost 40% of what is sold here is tequila, well above mezcal, whiskey, rum, and vodka.
