A day at Local Drinks Market

I won a Facebook competition (result)

So off me and bestmate: notmysonsdad lele (long story might even get it’s own blog) go to Digbeth

Story of our lives….we were late!

Snuck into the back of our first masterclass with the lovely The Gintleman

Who knew Aldi gin is pretty awesome


Quick: we’ve got 15 minutes before our next class


Didn’t have enough time to eat

Snuck into back of next class with our chips! (do you see a pattern here)

Low ABV cocktails this time with The Edgbaston

Super yummy…don’t think they are low ABV when you have more than 1!

Discovered Yuzu liqueur- very good stuffs

Next stop the exhibition hall.

Found our friend 40 st. Paul’s (am in love with their Rhubard Reviver)

Am now the proud owner of bottle 57 of their Hockley tonic


Quick….Next class
