8:30pm: Martini Experience with Berry Brothers & Rudd’s No. 3 Gin
London’s oldest wine & spirit merchant, Berry Bros. & Rudd, has been one of St James’s many institutions since 1698, more recently launching its exceptional No. 3 Gin in 2010, which takes its name from its famous address. In this special Townhouse masterclass, a No.3 cocktail ambassador will be telling the story of how this award-winning spirit was born, and taking guests through a series of tastings including how to perfect a classic martini, how to understand a neat spirit’s flavours and introducing a fresh take on a classic gin and tonic. No gin lover should miss this opportunity to learn from the best.
