An interesting film shamelessly nicked from the archives of one M. Xavier Padovani, ambassador for Hendrick's worldwide. Three cheers for London's Cocktail Week. Chin chin!

 

 

Kind regards,

…and a smashing dash of facial topiary there from my good friend Mr Albion Geovictwardian. Three cheers, say I!

Ah yes. I called into the wonderful Unusual Umbrella Emorium while in London a couple of weeks ago. A very refreshing G&T was being served…

Evening Gentlemen,

Toddles off to the kitchen,ample supply of Hendricks? check! Fever Tree tonic water? Check! Cucumber? Check!

I may even mix it up a little and add an extra ingredient or two.

Cheers chaps,

Adam

Mr Adam,

 

may I be so bold as to recommend Sipsmith gin and Fentemans tonic as an alternative to your suggestion – a true match made in heaven and one that I feel takes the humble sloe to another level.

Gentlemen,

Slipsmith? That's a new one on me. Mr Corky… I might just have to give that a go. And how was your H&T this evening, Mr Adam? Unusual, I hope.

Now then, Mr KK, you seem like a noble character. Have you not considered joining the swelling mass that is The Guvnors' Assembly at the Autumnal Tweed Run, to be held in the capital on the 26th of this month? If not, do give it some serious thought, won't you?

Kind regards,

Martin

Morning Gentlemen,

Mr Corky, thank you for the tip off, I will endeavor to source a bottle for closer inspection.

Mr Martin, a few stiff H&T's did just the job last night, cheers!

Regards,

Adam

Alas, I will be unable to join you in the Metropolis. I have a couple of prior engagements on that date. One of which is a trip to the rather splendid Copper Dragon brewery bistro. Q. What's the food like? A. Who cares…?

Ah, a most compelling engagement that requires your attendance Mr KK- enjoy, good fellow. Perhaps we will see you on a future Guvnor ride? Let's hope so.

Kind regards,

Top ale those fellows at Copper Dragon brew but the Dark Star offerings at The Harp may provide some compensation for those attending the Tweed Run.
