London Cocktail Week

London is perhaps one of the best places for cocktails, with the endless trendy and quirky bars on offer in this cosmopolitan city. London Cocktail Week is celebrating this fabulous cocktail scene, together with 250 of the city’s best bars, to serve discounted drinks to the London masses. During Cocktail Week there will be a cocktail village at Old Spitalfields Market, where you can immerse yourself in a maze of pop-up cocktail bars and food stalls.

The bartenders can make your cocktail dreams a reality. There is no doubt that the array of ingredients and recipes will be abundant, but do not fret if you don’t drink alcohol! Mocktail lovers are welcome too. London Cocktail week isn’t just about gathering around and consuming alcohol though! There will be a whole host of fun events going on, including masterclasses, distillery tours, tastings and paired meals. Ever wanted to learn exactly how vodka is made? Hint: it's from potatoes. How to tune your palette to tasting nuances of flavours within a drink? Or maybe you just want to gather around and meet some Londoners with some drinks. We don’t blame you.

Cocktail Week? I'll drink to that!

The ladies at Amazing PR HQ have been so distracted by it being National Chocolate Week that we almost overlooked a rather important fact – it’s also London Cocktail Week. Thankfully it’s running until Sunday which means there’s three days left in which we can quaff cocktails to our heart’s delight. And featuring a whole host of bespoke cocktail tours this weekend, there’s never been a better, or indeed a more enjoyable way of learning more about the crème de la crème of drinks.

More than 5000 people took part in last year’s London Cocktail Week, and with over fifty bars and seven days of jam-packed events, it was a fierce reminder that London has one of the richest and most diverse bar scenes in the world. And having showcased events such as Molecular Mixology, Whisky-Tasting and a Bartender Competition in 2010, the organisers certainly haven’t disappointed this year.

Saturday is hosting an impressive eleven events including RumFest - a festival celebrating the diversity of everyone’s favourite dark liquor, A Museum of Cocktails – a bespoke pop-up bar within the Savoy Hotel, and Meet the Maker - a Gin tasting masterclass.

And if you’re still standing come Sunday why not celebrate with Champagne Charlie, a tutored tasting at The Wine Shop in Selfridges, or our personal fave – the Paradise Sunday Roast which does exactly what is says on the tin and is served with a complimentary Bloody Mary – perfect for those hankering after a mild dose of hair of the dog!

So, if you’re looking for something new to do this weekend, join in the fun with London Cocktail Week – a true celebration of our favourite tipple and a rather fabulous city. Bottoms up!
