On October 6th, I sat down to lunch with Alex James, and his wife and business partner Karena De Lecaros-Aquise James, who at this moment have 1,782 bottles of their gin, ‘London to Lima’, crossing the Atlantic on their way to London.
Consider this your basic introduction to the 'trendiest' spirit around. We've put together a little fact sheet to take you through the basic history of gin, how it's made and why it seems to have been re-born.
With categories such as Food Sharing, Front of House, Chefs, Alcohol, Street Food, Meat and even this year's brilliantly named Charles Tanqueray Inginuity Award; pretty much every nook and cranny of the industry is covered.
We've gone for a mix of specific wines, beers & spirits; as well as some cocktails that you should be able to order at any bar. All guaranteed to give you that sought after summer feeling.
