Cocktails are a weakness of mine, with my favourite being a Martini, of the French or Espresso variety, so with this week seeing London Cocktail Week descend on our amazing city it only seems right to enjoy a drink or two.

The annual event will play host to parties, pop-ups, tastings and tours from some of the world’s leading drinks brands including several from our client Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands. The PR drinks team have picked their top highlights for the week below…. Enjoy!
