Win a Bottle of Gin and a Limited Edition Cocktail Illustration


May is here and that means summer is just around the corner and with it, hopefully, plenty of lazy hazy summer evenings drinking delicious cocktails in gardens, by the river, on terraces, balconies and roof top bars. We think that is reason to celebrate and we have a very special ‘cocktail-themed’ competition for all our friends this month in which the winner will receive not one, but two fabulous prizes.


The first part of our prize bundle is a beautiful limited edition Sara Stode illustration from her recent exhibition ‘Cocktail Wednesdays’ at Fanny Nelsons Bar, a wonderful pub & restaurant (their brunch is epic!) in London’s Hackney, not far from Columbia Road Flower Market. Fittingly, the drawing we are giving away is that of a cocktail Sara drank and sketched at Fanny Nelsons, the ‘Frida’, a deliciously refreshing  tequila, mezcal & Aperol based drink, topped up with grapefruit soda. You can read all about Sara and her inspiration for ‘Cocktail Wednesdays’ here.


The second part of the prize is a 70cl bottle of Colonel Fox’s London Dry Gin from Cremorne 1859, curtsey of our friends at Cutlass Communications. Distilled by Charles Maxwell, owner of Thames Distillery, Colonel Fox uses juniper from Italy to drive the classic gin flavour, bitter orange peel sourced from Morocco for freshness, cassia bark for aromatic spice, angelica root to dry the gin, coriander seed for a wonderful lemon and peppery finish and finally liquorice root to give sweetness and a creamy mouth feel. Perfect for creating cocktails.

I hope you agree that this is a fabulous prize.


To win a bottle of Colonel Fox’s Dry London Gin 70cl and an 20cm x 20cm unframed limited edition cocktail illustration by Sara Stode, please let us now:
