Since its day of triumph on September 16, 1810, Mexico has adapted international influences from its past while developing a rich and proud culture all its own.

We marked the occasion with our Celebrate Mezcal Box!

Where there is rum, it’s safe to say that fun cannot be too far behind—and the cocktails found in our Rum Wild Box delivered on the festivities while inspiring idyllic thoughts of surf, sand, and sun.
