Drambuie presents The Brass & Crimson – an immersive pop-up experience in the heart of London Cocktail Week action. The Brass & Crimson is set in the basement bar of ‘SMITHS’, Spitalfields from 7th- 9th October 2015.
Adopted and loved by the New York scene in the 60’s, Drambuie has a long-standing association with bar culture, music and mixology.Inspired by this, for London Cocktail Week Drambuie will both celebrate the culture that made it an icon, whilst looking forwards with an immersive fusion of live music and classic drinks including the Rusty Nail™, a slow sipping favourite of the legendary Rat Pack.
The Brass & Crimson will play host to two Drambuie Unwritten Sessions, which will feature an incredible line up of talent including iconic artists playing smoky and unexpected sounds.
Drambuie’s Unwritten Sessions at The Brass & Crimson will be a chance to chat to music legends and watch them create unique collaborations and improvisations. The week will culminate in a jaw-dropping ticketed show on Friday evening by a super-cool, much-loved act that takes their influence from the jazz world and brings it bang up to date with some soulful vocals and big beats. Watch this space for more details…
