A wildly brilliant idea.
This one-of-a-kind bar is coming to the capital for London Cocktail Week, and we’re here for it. Courtesy of Zero Waste Spirits Brand Discarded Spirits Co., you will be treated to a unique event where, in their own words, “waste, taste and purpose meet beautifully”.
Introducing “The World’s Most Rubbish Bar”, a brand new immersive pop-up aimed at reshaping the perception of waste while delivering a candle cocktail experience.
Did you know that junk coffee grounds, leftover citrus peel and flat sparkling wine from local bars and cafes could be given a new lease of life, creating spirits that taste amazing? Well, now you do – and you’ll have a chance to sample what the circular cocktail economy has to offer October 15-17.
By teaming up with top bartenders from iconic bars (including The Nomad, Lyaness, Silo, Artesian, Eve Bar, and The Gate), you’ll see how so-called trash can be turned into the most delicious – and sustainable – cocktails that be.
Discarded Spirits Co. has three divine spirits for you to try: Discarded Grape Skin Vodka, Discarded Banana Skin Rum, and Discarded Sweet Cascara Vermouth. As you can probably guess from their titles, they were all created with ingredients that would have gone in the trash.
Plus, you’ll take a journey through Latin American coffee fields, Chardonnay vineyards, and Caribbean jungles to experience how waste is turned into these luxurious spirits. A day drenched in innovation, if there is one.
If you don’t want to waste another second in ignoring this process, head to The Ditch, Old Street, EC1V 9LT October 15-17 from 6 to 8 p.m. or 9 to 11 p.m. Tickets cost £ 20 and you can book them here. You can also buy Discarded Spirits Co. drinks directly from Waitrose Where Clinkspirit.com.
