SWIG Hipflask

SWIG Hip Flask

Form And Function...  

The guys at SWIG recently asked if we’d test drive one of their hip flasks and I accepted as I’ve often found myself taking one for events where the expected selection of booze on offer will be poor. But what to say in review about something that simply holds liquid? Well, I guess it’s more about the experience and in that regard, the hipflask does its thing.

Pedrino Summer – Cocktail of the Week

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Pedrino Alcoholic Tonic Water

It’s Pedro Calling…  

Our cocktail of the week is more of a mixed affair, or rather more about the mixer within. There’s no particular rum leading the way in the serve, in fact the coming weeks mark the beginning of an experiment to find the very best rum of the many that work well. It’s simple, tasty and well within the reach of all and it features Pedrino Alcoholic Tonic.

Havana Club Icónica Collection Twitter Tasting

#HavanaClubTT

1st June, 2015 7.30pm (UK)

We now have just two fab Havana Club Icónica Collection tasting sample sets left in the draw for those who want to get involved first hand with the Twitter Tasting we are hosting on the 1st of June. If you’re directly involved, you’ll be sipping and learning all about Selección de Maestros, 15-year-old, Havana Club Unión (not commercially available in the UK) and finishing with the super exclusive Havana Club Máximo. But, please don’t forget it’s open to all to get involved, sip the rums you’ve got access to and (most importantly), use the moment to ask the questions of the people that will be involved.

World Class UK Semi Finals 2015

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Diageo Reserve World Class

Latecomer…  

I'm going to freely admit I've arrived quite late to the World Class party and I’m feeling a little like I’m playing catch-up right now. But it’s a difficult phenomenon to ignore, as over the last few years Diageo's World Class Bartender Competition has proved itself to be the ultimate prize in terms of scope, scale and desirability.

Le Latin – Cocktail of the Week

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Le Latin - by Frank Dedieu, FRANCE

Latin Inspiration…  

Our Cocktail of the Week this time is something of a celebration this time, because a few days ago, Franck Dedieu won the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition with a super simple serve that has sufficient ‘twist’ to make me want to feature it here.
