Calling all cocktail fans – you need to take a trip to London Cocktail Week!
Now in its seventh year, London Cocktail Week is back and its bigger and more potent than ever! Running until Sunday 9th October, the week is a celebration of the capital’s fantastic cocktail culture… and a chance to try delicious drinks in its very best bars.
For a mere £10 (seriously, it’s cheap), a wristband will give you access to the whole week of events and includes unlimited £5 cocktails in over 250 of London’s bars; unlimited entry to the London Cocktail Week Village at Old Spitalfields Market; a guidebook; bottle discounts; and access to specially-created events, masterclasses, pop-ups and parties.
The House of Peroni Presents Amare L’Italia.
One of the many pop-up bars in the London Cocktail Week Village is the beautifully designed and super-tasty (I know from experience), The House of Peroni.
Throughout the week, some of the world’s best mixologists, Italian heritage spirits brands and Peroni Nastro Azzurro will take up residency in the space. The theme – Amare L’Italia (a literal translation of ‘loving Italy’) – is inspired by ingredients and the area surrounding Venice, the mixologists have crafted a a series of cocktails specially created for London Cocktail Week – all paying homage to their creators’ love of Italy.
The impressive line-up of bartenders includes:
- Simone Caporale – Peroni Nastro Azzurro Master of Mixology
- Davide Zanardo – Chiltern Firehouse
- Luca Missaglia – Aqua Shard
- Gabriele Manfredi – Oriole
- Maurizio Palermo – 45 Park Lane
- Simone Spagnoli – Mr Fogg’s Residence
For cocktail inspiration, the mixologists spent three nights exploring their homeland.
Their creations will be served throughout London Cocktail Week at the Old Spitalfields Market Cocktail Village, as well as being available at each of their establishments. Each day one of the cocktails from their inspiration trip will be showcased by the very bartender who created it.
London Cocktail Week: What you waiting for?
I’d seriously recommend splashing a tenner on a London Cocktail Week wristband. The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder and you need no excuse to enjoy yourself! Get yourself down there.
Look out for me – I’ll be the one at The House of Peroni bar with a Peroni Bellini in hand. Standard.
