Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, bursts with colour and soul. Dating back to ancient times of Mesoamerica’s Aztec, Maya and Toltec cultures, it’s a celebration of life and death. Of lost loved ones and the memories they paint. With it comes sugared calaveras (skulls) and calacas (skeletons). Candlelight ritual. Sounds of folk music, noise and laughter. Smells of amber marigold flowers and hot, sweet treats. Dancing in the streets. A reunion of the living and spirit worlds.
Togetherness, storytelling and celebration are three things we at MOTH hold dear. Which is why we’ve been inspired to team up with two good friends, Dr Sting’s and Maldon Salt, to create a special MOTH: Margarita. One that dances around the sweet chilli rim of Dr Sting’s Hot Honey. One that’s showered in Maldon’s iconic Sea Salt Flakes. And one that percolates with the complex and joyful flavours of the award-winning Enemigo Tequila. We think it nods perfectly to the beautiful celebration of Día de los Muertos. If you’d like to join us in creating this, there’s 20 limited edition bundles with all the bits you need, up for grabs below.
