It’s always the way, I’m in London but can’t get to yet another great sounding event!

The Coconut Rundown: Pepsi Challenge (Inc. Hoxton Gin!)


Recently I’ve compared Hoxton Gin, one of the newest gins on the market, to Malibu. This was mainly due to the coconut being such a dominating botanical in the end product.

Review: Spuntino, 61 Rupert Street, Soho


Spuntino, 61 Rupert Street, Soho
Soho is a place for many things, and Rupert Street has a lot to offer. If you aren’t careful you will certainly end up with something more than a nice set of dishes and a classic cocktail.

Dan Priseman, Jubjub, Callooh Callay Menu

It’s well known that I love Callooh Callay, even if there’s not a review of it on here (I really should sort that out!). What I love though, is the fact there is a quirky little bar hidden away, The Jubjub. This weekend Dan Priseman, writer of Bitters & Twisted; Four Roses guru, has a [...]
