Tequila Tromba’s annual celebration of the Paloma – International Paloma Appreciation Week – returns for its sixth year in 2021.
The Margarita’s deceptively sweet-looking little sister is a tart and refreshing mix of 100% agave tequila, grapefruit soda, lime and salt.
This year, Tequila Tromba has launched a ‘Drink a Paloma, Save an Agave’ promotion that supports the protection and sustainability of one of Mexico’s most important agricultural gems – the agave plant.
Agave that have lived harmoniously on the land for thousands of years are now at the brink of extinction, with thousands of these amazing plants harvested and destroyed each year to create corporate farmland.
For every Paloma or bottle of tequila purchased until September 26, 2021, Tequila Tromba will not only donate land, but will also plant wild agave via its Endangered Agave Program (EAP), dedicated to restoring endangered agave populations.
