“This gin is f*cking lush” Danny Dyer on Blackdown Sussex Dry Gin.
From dry ice gin & tonic sorbets to glassware serves scientifically designed to enhance the way you enjoy drinking Whisky, the Nominees and Winners Bar at the NTAs 2016 was definitely the place to be on Wednesday 20th January 2016. And the Mixology Group were around to bring the party!
Alongside the teams from Liquor To Lips, Blackdown Artisanal Spirits, and Chillistick and Peter Spanton Drinks, the Mixology Group manned the VIP Indigo igloo bar of the o2 Arena for an extra special NTA after party.
With Heat Magazine’s hot celebrity photoshoot ongoing raising the temperature in the bar, the award winners, including some of the cast from TOWIE, The Great British Bakeoff, I’m A Celeb, Eastenders and Coronation Street, were brought back down to sub-zero cool with a range of delicious drinks (or sorbets) to hand!
On the menu was a selection of Gin or Vodka tonics paired respectively with Peter Spantons’ Cardamom and Lemon Grass Tonic waters (look for the Silver Birch Straws in all the paparazzi photos for BDs’ G&Ts!). Alongside this was a Blackdown Sussex Dry Gin and London Dry Tonic Dry Ice instant Sorbet, the dry ice courtesy of Chillistick mixed up with a touch of grenadine for light, sweet taste with a lot of punch!
For those favouring something a little darker the Lakes Distillery were offering their delicious The One scotch blend, served in a NEAT glass enhanced with a touch from the Whisky Key (which you can find more about both here). All drinks went down a storm and really made to the celebrations a real night to remember for all the winners!
An overall success and a great kickstart to 2016, the countdown to the NTA 2017 now begins!!!
