In case you somehow missed it earlier this month, the start of October saw the return of London Cocktail Week, giving the whole of London (another) reason to have hangover-inducing mid-week drinks. This year's event was the biggest celebration to date, with over 300 bars partnering up with the organisers throughout the week, as well as pop-ups, bar collaborations, industry parties and awards spread over the capital, together with the ever popular Cocktail Village. We took a look at the trends and highlights.
Non-alcoholic and low ABV cocktails were centre stage for the first time at London Cocktail Week. It was the first year that organisers invited bars to include non-alcoholic drinks in the cocktail tours.
Other standout trends included the comeback of some classics, as well as the rise of Pisco, and we cover the key takeaways from London Cocktail Week in full over on our trendhub. Read the full report here.
