Gin Hotel to Launch in London

Next week, London’s first ‘gin hotel’ will open its doors, just in time for Christmas bookings. The hotel, which has four floors of gin-filled fun will feature a distillery, two bars, a museum, a blending room where you can make your own gin and three bedrooms.

The real life gin palace, named ‘The Distillery’ and situated on Portobello Road, is due to open on the 16th December.

 Hennessy Release Video to Coincide with 60th Gold Cup

Last week saw the Hennessy Gold Cup take place for its 60th year. The brand, who’s association with the horse race is the longest running sponsorship in the sport, created an inspiring and informative video to coincide.

What’s more, they also created a new cocktail called the Hennessy Mandarin, named after the winning horse of the first Hennessy Gold Cup in 1957 – it will be available in the Four Seasons, Park Lane in the Winter Garden.
