Cinco de Mayo, a traditional annual celebration that is held on the 5th of May commemorates Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Historically, Tall ships like the Royal Albatross were commonplace in history as a form of transport between lands and this especially was seen in historical representations like those seen in the Intervention in Mexico where the French, British & Spanish arrives at Veracruz back in 1862 and is highly representative for this special occasion.
The guest of honor, who will be gracing the event, the Mexican Ambassador to Singapore; H.E. Agustin Garcia-Lopez Loaeza has a personal family tie to Cinco De Mayo, in that his late great grandfather Gen. Francisco Loaeza from the Ignacio Zaraqgoza Battalion had personally fought in the battle of Puebla.
“This year we wanted to do something special to celebrate our ‘victory’ from the pandemic to be able to gain back some of our freedom that COVID19 had taken away from our lives and our businesses, it’s appropriate that Cinco de Mayo a celebration of victory is held on board the Royal Albatross” said Mr. Peter L. Pela, CEO Royal Albatross.
“We are pleased to partner with Royal Albatross, we wanted to do this partnership between Tequila Stop and Royal Albatross for a while now but the situations with COVID didn’t permit. Our team is also proud to have H.E Agustin Garcia-Lopez Loaeza on board to grace us in such an important event that the first round of tequila cocktails will be on us!” exclaimed Mr. Brian Werner, CEO Tequila Stop.
