Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Lyre’s Agave Blanco Spirit
Lyre’s produce an extensive range of alcohol-free spirits, and they’re releasing a new one, say hello to Lyre’s Agave Blanco Spirit. This delicious new tequila-style spirit has a complex flavour profile, with notes of citrus, peppers, pine, spices, and oak.
To celebrate the launch, the Lyre’s team is hitting the road and taking their non-alcoholic Margarita truck on tour around the UK. Starting on Thursday 5th May 2022, Lyre’s will host an open-invite launch party in London’s Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch. You can visit the truck on Brushfield Street to grab a free, non-alcoholic Lyre’s Margarita, made using Lyre’s Agave Blanco Spirit, Lyre’s Orange Sec, lime juice, syrup, and of course a hit of salt.
There will even be a live DJ set from legandary DJ Fat Tony from 6pm to 8pm, so be sure to shimmy on down. DJ Tony recently celebrated 15 years of sobriety, and is a huge fan of Lyre’s spirits, desribing them as ‘a complete game changer’. We couldn’t agree more.
After the launch party on May 5th, the Lyre’s Margarita truck will visit various London locations over another three days, before continuing on for the rest of its 10-day UK tour in Brighton (12th May), Bristol (13th May) and finishing up in Manchester (14th & 15th May)
Visitors to the Margarita truck will receive a free non-alcoholic margarita as well as a voucher for a special offer on Lyre’s to redeem at a local bar so you can continue your Cinco de Mayo celebrations with Lyre’s even once the roadshow has left town.
Lyre’s will host a finale fiesta on Sunday 15th May on Manchester’s King Street (M2 4LY) to mark the end of the UK tour. Visit the truck throughout the day from 10.30am to enjoy a Lyre’s alcohol-free Margarita, and bring your dancing feet for a live performance from Manchester’s very own DJ Paulette, who will be hitting the decks from 15.00 – 17.00.
