The Essence House, London Cocktail Week 2019

To celebrate London Cocktail week, we took part in an innovative event called The Essence House. An interactive journey of flavour discovery, hosted by the originative team at The London Essence Company.

Dan Dove of Global Bartending created this truly imaginative experience. Dan identified the complementary pairing between Evogro’s fresh, supreme, quality plants and matched this with The London Essence Company who craft luxurious drinks from the purest flavours. Selecting the most beautiful botanicals and gently distilling them to capture their true essence.

Curated by Dr Rachel Edwards-Stuart, an expert in flavour perception in the UK. The guests were taken on a personalised journey through flavour with a series of interactive taste and aroma tests to help identify their palate profile. This process resulted in a personalised cocktail mixed by one of the world’s top bartenders. The sheer skill and talent of this group of cocktail maestros was a treat for all the guests.

Evogro installed four cabinets full of a wide variety of herbs which the bartenders picked as they made the cocktails. It was great to see professionals enjoy using our growing systems and acknowledge the quality of the plants they produce.
