It’s the final weekend of #londoncocktailweek and there are some amazing trade events taking place. See the line-up on the link in our bio and we’ll see you at the Cocktail Village 🍸 ...bravo @drinkupldn 👏
In our autumn magazine you’ll find a pretty tasty cocktail made with @StrawbarSpirit by @sergiojimenezbartender at @galvinatwindows. Strawbar is a range of eaux-de-vie produced entirely from single origin strawberries from Greece. These spirits capture a side of this fruit that is seldom, if ever, found in other strawberry flavoured products, and their lack of sweetness gives them a particular versatility. 🍓 .
.
.
Plus, they’ve just booked to attend #ImbibeLive 2020. So you if you can’t get your hands on it before hand, you’ll be able to taste it there.

This week, managing editor @millie_milliken travelled to Finland to visit the guys at @kyrodistillery. Their story is truly remarkable and their liquids are even better. As well as the award-winning Napue gin, their whisky is making waves in Finland (and beyond). There's an exciting new distillery being built too – we can't wait to see what their future holds 🥃
