Last week, I popped along to the launch of a new booze-related venture – a website called 31DOVER. It sells an array of wines, spirits and premixed cocktails, with the focus heavily on high quality, personalised customer service. The site is 'run' by a character called The Barman, who is a bit of a rogue (apparently), but knows his stuff. That's probably why he has that slightly smug look... ON THE SITE, not on his real life counterpart!
The Barman's biological form made some masterful martinis.
I took the wonderful Bethan as my date and we got to sip the aforementioned dry martinis (as seen above) as well as 31DOVERs, a champagne cocktail with honey, lemon and maraschino cherries. They were delicious!
These are among the brands that 31 Dover sell. I haven't actually tried Crystal Head Vodka (as made by Dananananan Aykroyd), but I like the bottle a lot.
I unfortunately forgot about this event when I packed my overnight bag the day before, so was in a semi-casual pair of high-waisted jeans from American Apparel (nowhere near as high-waisted as I like but good for work and everyday wear), plus a jumper that came from Greetz from Tiz.
Thank you to the guys for having me and Bethan last week, and thanks for the lovely souvenir, which will be on my keyring forever more.
If you're looking for some advice on drinks and cocktails, then 31 Dover seems to be a good place to go. Check it (and its nicely designed Facebook app) out.
