London Cocktail Week – where to go for the finest drinks

Drink

London Cocktail Week is here again and here are our pick of the best things to check out, from 60 second cocktails to human towers..

13th-22nd Oct – Bruichladdich x Native at Browns 

Two endeavours committed to sustainability have teamed up with a perfect treat for London Cocktail Week. The truly special little Mayfair restaurant in Brown’s, Native, has sustainability at its core with its handmade design and landscaped garden setting. And here, LCW wristband wearers can enjoy a delicious Islay Highball for £7. It is inspired by the  landscape of Islay, and made with their in-house ‘parsley honey’ which has similar flavour notes to heather honey. Of course it is also made from BOM favourite, The Classic Laddie, which also has sustainability at its core. It is distilled from 100% Scottish barley at the Bruichladdich Distillery on the island of Islay – where the whisky is all natural, nothing is chillfiltered and no caramel colouring is added. And boy, can you taste the quality.

This special London Cocktail Week cocktail is perfectly paired with the ‘chefs wasting snacks’ – a selection of zero waste snacks (which change depending on the day) made from what many would consider to be waste, but to Native they are an ingredient and product in its own right!
