1. Quiquiriqui 184 Hackney Road, London, E2 7QL (Hackney)

Both twisting and pleasing the tongue is no easy feat, but Quiquiriqui ("cock-a-doodle-doo" in Spanish) steps up to the task by being London's first "genuine" mezcal bar. Hidden below a Hackney kebab shop, its founders spent four months touring Mexico, forging relationships with small producers who "literally had donkeys pulling stone wheels" to make their hooch.
