Only in Arizona, in particular Tucson, will you find the long-standing tradition of celebrating the Seis de Mayo.
Started in 2017, Seis de Mayo celebrates the day after the victory at Puebla where the tiny Mexican forces beat the mean old French army by drinking tequila.
And local distiller, Three Wells Distilling Company, makes a great agave spirit right here in Tucson and they’ve decided to celebrate Seis de Mayo in a clever way.
Their tasty potent potable can be found statewide in bars and in stores and they are encouraging folks to enjoy their agaves at their favorite watering hole either in a cocktail or by the shot or in the comfort of their own homes after they have purchased their very own bottle of the Silver or Reposado.
Then they’re inviting the public to take a selfie with their Three Wells agave and post it to Instagram/Facebook/Twitter with the #RebelliousSpirit hashtag.
A winner will receive a Three Wells gift card good for $50 at Three Wells Distilling Company (which just happens to be the price of the Agave Resposado!).
