In case you’ve been living under a rock, Taste of London is back. The foodie equivalent of London Cocktail Week, the best restaurants, bars and international brands have descended on Regent’s Park for 5 days of face stuffing and I was lucky enough to score a couple of passes to the opening night on Wednesday with Tanqueray.
From chefs like Elizabeth Haigh and James Cochran through to restaurants including Gaucho, Brigadiers and the LA-based Eggslut, you’ve really got your pick of the best. But we weren’t just here for the food… it was all about the gin. Making a beeline for the House of Tanqueray at No.TEN, we were greeted with floral decor and botanical concoctions.
Shaking up a refined selection of cocktails, Tanqueray has brought their A-game to Taste. Surpassing the other bars in terms of variety and quality, the House of Tanqueray at No.TEN menu included a signature G&T, a Grapefruit Collins and a deliciously sweet Fresh Gimlet (all £8) created using orgeat and aromatic bitters for a silky finish.
Ready for a cocktail class with Diageo ambassador TJ, we got cosy in the World Class tent. Pioneering fine cocktail culture, World Class supports bartenders around the world, as well as running an annual Bartender of the Year competition. As the 20 finalists sipped on drinks at the bar, we took to making our own Collins’ and sours. I wasn’t intimidated in the least…
Don’t miss the House of Tanqueray at No.TEN at Taste of London. You’ll find it at Regent’s Park, London, NW1 4NR until Sunday 23 Jun 2019
