Bulleit Frontier Whiskey At London Beer Week 2017

Bulleit - Bacchus-19

This year, Bulleit Bourbon will once again be the frontier whiskey of choice for beer enthusiasts as it pops up at bars and locations around the capital throughout London Beer Week 2017.

Over the course of London’s largest celebration of beers, ales, lagers and ciders, a selection of top bars will be serving limited edition Bulleit cocktails, all of which include beer as a key ingredient. At Hopscotch on Brick Lane, a spicy Ginger Bulleit will be on offer, comprised of Bulleit, Hop House 13, ginger, lemon and malt, as well as a shorter, headier concoction of Bulleit Hop House 13 Syrup and Campari in the Beer-vardier at Found. In addition, East London hotspot, Peg + Patriot will be serving up an unusual mixture of Bulleit, Hop House 13, Campari and Wermurtlich, finished off with a clarified banana syrup. These limited edition cocktails with Bulleit and Hop House 13 lager at their centre, showcase the complimentary tasting notes of spicy Bulleit when combined with the flavoursome maltiness of premium beer.

Additionally, Bulleit will continue to champion the iconic Boilermaker serve at the The Beer Edit directly in the epicentre of London Beer Week 2017. Running across three days from the 16th-18th March, The Drink Up Bar will be playing host to a selection of whiskies, giving guests the opportunity to upgrade any of the beers on offer to a Boilermaker serve. Due to its unusually high rye content, Bulleit is the perfect match for the distinctive flavours of the various craft beers on offer, which include Southwark Brewing Co, Cotswold Cider Co, Umbrella Brewing, Canopy Beer Co, Badger Beer, Courage SE1, Renegade Brewery and Gosnells London Mead, all at £3, with a boilermaker upgrade for £2, exclusively to LBW wristband holders.

London Beer Week is a true celebration of beers, ales, lagers and ciders alike, set against the backdrop of the capital. Running from 13th-19th March, the festival provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy Bulleit Frontier Whiskey alongside some of the world’s best beers.

The House Of Peroni Brings A Taste Of Italy To Manchester This Spring

S36 31956 Gold Shards Bottle RGB

Italians have always sought to push the boundaries to create something unique – from the pioneering Renaissance art movement that placed Italy as the capital of the world’s art scene, through to Carlo Peroni, who in 1963 was inspired to craft the first premium Italian beer.

To celebrate the quality of craftsmanship that is so inherent to the Italian way of life, The House of Peroni will be opening its doors in Manchester, giving visitors the chance to experience art like never before, all within the backdrop of a vibrant Peroni Nastro Azzurro bar.

The House will open its doors in Manchester’s bustling Spinningfields Square for a special four-day event from Wednesday 5th April – Saturday 8th April that will allow guests to experience a virtual world that blends art and technology.

THE ART EXPERIENCE

The brand has teamed up with Beautiful Crime Agency and three featured artists to produce bespoke art using innovative technology from Tilt Brush by Google. Guests visiting The House of Peroni will be able to virtually step inside these artworks and explore the pieces, before being given the freedom to experiment and explore their own artistic talent, under the guidance of an expert.

Brit artist Carne Griffiths, along with 2016 Lumen Prize winner Fabio Giampietro and Italian graffiti artist, Peeta, have each created incredible virtual reality pieces around the theme of ‘craftsmanship’– a quality inherent to Peroni Nastro Azzurro.

Italian artist Fabio Giampietro (2016 winner of the prestigious Lumen Prize for digital art) has drawn on his early childhood memories with his carpenter uncle and blended this with his love of the ‘Futurismo’ art
movement of the early 20th century.

Fabio comments: “My signature style is to create a fairly abstract cityscape and play with a sense of perspective. For this project, entitled ‘Neon Vertigo’, I’ve invoked the craftsmanship that was apparent in my uncle’s joinery work and related it to architecture and the concept of the ‘metropolis’ – a motif that is apparent throughout all of my work.”
Brit artist Carne Griffiths found his inspiration from his 12 years as an embroidery designer, from which came a real fascination with the creation and manipulation of the drawn line. Similarly, Italian artist Peeta, has looked to his own heritage and experience in the art world to bring his work to life – using Venetian ‘Murano’ glassware as his muse.

THE BAR

The pop up will play also play host to a bar and aperitivo area, where guests can enjoy an evening with friends over a Peroni Nastro Azzurro, an infusion and a selection of antipasti all against a backdrop of works from our resident artists.

Award winning ‘Master of Mixology’, Simone Caporale will also return for a third year to bring his inimitable style of cocktail mastery to the infusion menu. With gin, Peroni Nastro Azzurro and sweet, spring-like citrus notes, the Oro Liquido liquid gold serve glows bright from the menu and is joined by L’Astratto – a long, more bitter serve featuring flavoured, coloured ice cubes. A fragrant take on the traditional Bellini, the Peroni Peony will feature crisp white peach, grape, peony and magnolia flowers. Finally, the classic Peroni Negroni will also re-join the menu for another year.
The centrepiece of the pop up, will be an eye-catching bar structure created by renowned set designer Petra Storrs. For her distinctive design, she has been inspired by the rich colour palette and playfulness of the light effects in the Tilt Brush technology, and blended it with the iconic Peroni Nastro Azzurro ‘blue ribbon’ to create an incredible focal point.

The House of Peroni takes residence at
Spinningfields Square, Quay Street, Manchester, M3 3AP
from Wednesday 5th April – Saturday 8th April.

St Lucia Distillers Set to Travel Around the UK

Distillers-Final-LogoThis March and April, UK distributor Emporia Brands have put together a calendar of events involving its award-winning St Lucia Distillers range, after the initial success of last year’s programme.

In 1931, the Barnard family founded a distillery at Dennery, St Lucia. Now based on the other side of the island at Roseau, the distillery has been considerably modernized and new technologies and improvements constantly incorporated. The installation of pot stills in 1998 added considerably to the variety of rums being produced in this highly regarded distillery which received the accolade of Individual Distiller of the Year at the International Spirits Challenge, one of six trophies received in six years – a unique achievement.

With the premise of a flavour experience, the tour sees an approach to the range that offers bartenders and key industry figures invited to not only learn about St Lucia, but ideas on how to embrace the versatility of St Lucia Distillers, from the Spiced variety to the rare 1931.

Cities on the tour include Manchester, London, Leeds, Brighton, Liverpool, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester, Newcastle, Cardiff, Reading, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Glasgow, with Emporia Brands looking to strengthen their campaign as they look ahead to the next instalment of the ‘Chairman’s XI’ with their ever-expanding sales team seeking out some of the UK’s best and brightest to follow in the footsteps of some of the industries key figures, including Lyndon Higginson of The Liars Club in Manchester, Danny Murphy of Aloha in Liverpool and Adam Binnersley of the MOJO Group.

El Gato Negro Turn A Blind Eye With Prohibition Event

el_gato_negro_mcr_28nov2016-0113
El Gato Negro is to step back in time with an exclusive evening of social (and secret) drinking pleasure to toast Repeal Day on December 5. The day when Prohibition – a ban on the manufacture and sale of alcohol – came to an end in 1933.

Food and wine aficionados are invited to take part in the clandestine event, which will be held in the acclaimed Black Cat – the upstairs bar at the top of the heritage building with Manchester’s only retractable roof. Treasures sourced from local antique dealers, add character and vintage glamour – a perfect Prohibition hideaway.

Guests can shake their tail feathers behind blacked out windows to live swing band The Prohibition Swing Club or sit back and take in the speakeasy flavour with specially created cocktails. The exclusive cocktail menu will include the Bee’s Knees, a delicious blend of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, wild blossom honey and orange blossom, the White Water Rickey, a chilled mix of Buffalo Trace Bourbon and homemade strawberry iced tea soda and the Branca Brew, a dark blend of Fernet-Branca, fig liqueur and dry lager.

Though the full recipe is a secret, Fernet is made from a number of herbs and spices. It was handily classified as ‘medicinal’ during the Prohibition era, cementing its popularity in San Francisco and elsewhere. Do like the San Franciscans do this Repeal Day and give your merrymaking a healthy makeover.

The intimate event at the Black Cat starts at 1900. No booking is required, but access is recommended via the backdoors on South King Street in order to elude prying eyes. Discounts will be offered to those who have secured the secret passcode or to those in 1920’s glad rags.
