Starting in Africa and the tribal surrounds of Tusk you’ll enjoy a homemade infusion cocktail from South Africa’s Whitley Neill. Back to England and Rosylee for a quintessentially British classic from Portobello Road. Going across the pond to America, enjoy a 1920s, speakeasy-style Hudson Whiskey cocktail at The Fitzgerald and finish in the tropics with a fresh and fruity rum number in Hula, from Santa Teresa. Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th October, 7pm – 9pm. Tickets £25 each. See Skiddle to book your place.

Rosylee's Gin Parlour
