London Cocktail Week: Review – Drinks & Drinks


It’s Sunday and it’s time for London Cocktail Week to draw to a close. I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last few days checking out what has been going on, and this is just a quick recap of some of the highlights of my trip.

Hendrick’s put on a stunning show, transforming an old petrol station into a tranquil haven in Clerkenwell. In a private event, ‘The Quintessential Anthology of Gin’, myself and some fellow companions were able to taste Hendrick’s in all it’s parts. From the carterhead still product, along to Hendricks at 80%ABV and even a sneaky tasting of Battersea Cordial!

The Zacapa seminar with Lorena Vasquez, the master blender, was a great delight and was followed by Glen Hooper talking about reviving the digestif with Rum.

Ginfest 2010

It does sometimes feel that Birmingham isn’t offering ‘much’ in the way of education, and it’s great to see that the Jekyll & Hyde in Birmingham is hosting a Ginfest.

Hendrick's Horseless Carriage of Curiosities

Those folks at Hendrick’s have decided to decamp to London Cocktail Week for the um, week.  They appear to be having some amazing events planned, which all have rather adjective filled titles. I’m in attendance for part of the week and shall hopefully be attending the Anthology of Gin, along with a Hendrick’s & Tonic [...]
