This November, Ketel One Vodka and Drake & Morgan are teaming up with leading eco-friendly specialists KeepCup and renowned wild food expert James Wood, to launch a month-long residency at The Refinery Regent’s Place, to inspire mindful living – something we should all be doing more of.
The Ketel One: Cocktails with Care Collective will feature great tasting cocktails made from ingredients destined for landfill and feature master classes on how to use leftover items to make stand out cocktails at home. I know what you are thinking – “What using rubbish?” No not rubbish, but food and ingredients you would normally choose to throw away.
Ketel One Vodka has collaborated with KeepCup, and is offering a free* Espresso Martini when purchasing a KeepCup at a reduced cost of £10 from The Refinery Regents Place and Refinery Spinningfields in Manchester for a limited time only.
Expert mixologist and Ketel One brand ambassador Kate Jackson, has worked closely with the bar team and chefs at The Refinery Regent’s Place to identify leftover ingredients from the kitchen to curate a menu featuring cocktails made with care.
The drinks will feature the use of ‘wonky’ fruit & vegetables, citrus waste and syrups crafted using spent coffee and Champagne that’s lost its fizz destined to be poured down the sink. All the recipes have been skilfully crafted to elevate the taste of each drink.
The pop-up aims to inspire mindful living through interactive experiences. Friends will be able to come together and take a moment to enjoy a cocktail on an immersive swing adorned in living plants for the perfect picture moment, as well as discover chambers featuring thought- provoking environmental facts and sustainability tips.
If there is a masterclass where I can create amazing cocktails as well as help save the planet, then call me Superman!
Bookings for the The Ketel One: Cocktails with Care Collective master classes can be made directly with staff onsite or via The Refinery Regents Place website.
*Limited stock only. Drinkers must be aged over 18 and must have proof of ID. A complimentary Espresso Martini cocktail will be given for each KeepCup purchased at The Refinery Regents Place and Refinery Spinningfields in Manchester.
