Ten coolest things to do in London…

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co.

GQ magazine has named our latest collaboration with Michelin-starred Hakkasan as one of their ten coolest things to do in London this week. Coming in at number five, our limited edition cocktail has been selected as the perfect way to celebrate International Women’s Day. As GQ says, “if you’re going to raise a toast to incredible women, there’s no better tipple for the occasion.”

International Women’s Day at Hakkasan

This collaboration has seen our soon-to-be-released single malt transformed into a showstopping cocktail by four women at the forefront of Hakkasan’s bar, wine and pastry teams. Each has brought their own contribution, reflecting “the finesse of female sommelier, pastry chef, bartender and manager in a delectably decadent serve” – the creatively conceived Golden Nectar. From the rich caramel base of The Donn to the light citrus notes of mimosa cordial and the intricate toasty yuzu flavours of the Hundred Hills Blanc de Blancs 2018 this cocktail is a standout example of what happens when creative minds and the finest ingredients meet. 

As GQ notes, Hakkasan is worth a visit for its Michelin-starred Cantonese cuisine alone, but this month gives us more of an excuse. While 8th March is the perfect time to celebrate the women in your life, the Golden Nectar cocktail and The Donn are available throughout March until 4th April. As the only place to taste The Donn right now, it could be a busy month!
