How do you solve a problem like Tequila?
In our house, we’ve never feasted on turkey or brussel sprouts. Instead, we dine on Mexican food. Rather than pigs in blankets and roast potatoes our table is spread with fajitas, tacos, quesadillas and, of course, we’re partial to a dash of Tequila. And that’s where Mockingbird’s story begins, with a nice, quality Tequila.
Born into a family with a real love and connection to Mexico, my life has been punctuated with regular visits to both North and Central America. Tequila is a firm family favourite and, as you can imagine, is enjoyed on many occasions. Tequila is great, don’t get me wrong, steeped in tradition and heritage and a thing of true beauty. However, it is not right for everyone.
There are so many reasons someone might not want to drink alcohol… You could be cutting back, cutting out, pregnant, driving or just wanting to sample something a little bit different
Many types of alcohol now have a nonalcoholic counterpart, all but one… Tequila needed a decent non-alcoholic alternative. One that looks and tastes exactly the same but for people who are staying sober.
Fern McCoy is a first time founder with a desire to shake up the low-no sector with the UK’s first non alcoholic Tequila alternative. With a background in marketing, events and latterly the drinks industry, she has a passion for Tequila & Frida as well as everything else her Southern Californian heritage has to offer.
