"A delectable festival of drinks" - Conde Nast Traveller

In 2020 our new socially-distanced event will be operating at less than 50% capacity and has been designed to encourage guests to rediscover and support the city’s best bars and talented bartenders all within easy sipping distance of each other.

Made possible by the support of The Bedford Estate, all participating brands, bar and volunteers will be donating their time to this event, as the nation raises a glass to celebrate the return of the UK hospitality scene.


Additional experiences include:

1. Live music from Nightjar and The Piano Works supported by Hennessy.
2. Spirited tasting sessions hosted by The Mixing Class.
3. Complimentary interactive main stage demonstrations throughout the weekend including the Art of the Aperitivo.
4. Cocktail making sessions hosted by TT Liquor.
5. All washed down with amazing street food.


Tickets are priced at £15
including a welcome cocktail, live music, main stage demonstrations and seating throughout with the opportunity to book into numerous tasting sessions and experiences.

Additional cocktails will be priced at £7.50 and all profits are going to The Drinks Trust.

Participating bars include:
