Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands (BBFB) will be running a series of activities to mark this year’s London Cocktail Week, running from 3rd to 9th October 2016, with immersive experiences and special offers for LCW wristband wearers.
Bacardí rum, Grey Goose vodka and Bombay Sapphire gin are taking centre stage in the London Cocktail Week village where each will partner with a top London bar to bring its spirit to life through immersive and theatrical cocktail experiences.
Bacardí rum is teaming up with Rum Kitchen to bring a taste of Miami to London with tropical cocktails and a beach chic atmosphere. Inspired by the bistros of the continent, Grey Goose vodka and Duck & Waffle will invite vodka lovers and Francophiles to enjoy café culture with extraordinary cocktails. Bombay Sapphire gin and Cahoots will take visitors on a journey to discover the tastes and cultures of the world through their special creations.
Bartenders will have the opportunity to attend daytime inspirational seminars hosted by BBFB Brand Ambassadors Metinee ‘May’ Kongsrivilai (Bacardí), Myles Donneky (Grey Goose) and Renaud de Bosredon (Bombay Sapphire).
To extend the London Cocktail Week experience beyond Spitalfields Market, BBFB will also be offering London Cocktail Week wristband wearers specially-created cocktails made from brands within the portfolio such as Bacardí, Grey Goose, Woodford Reserve, Chambord and Jack Daniel’s. London Cocktail Week wristbands give visitors access to £5 cocktails on the stands, as well as at a series of partner bars such as LCC Bethnal Green, Joyeux Bordel, Sager and Wilde and more. BBFB will also be bringing the party spirit to London Cocktail Week with St Germain, Bombay Sapphire and Bacardí all hosting parties.
