Leading light and neon art gallery and private members’ club, Lights of Soho recently hosted the launch of the Aurora Magnum – a truly spectacular addition to Crystal Head’s range of deliciously pure vodka.

London’s premier rock ‘n’ roll jeweller (and LoS’s Soho neighbour) The Great Frog have joined forces with the brand to create a unique ‘Crown’, displayed on top of the iridescent skull-shaped bottle.

Built using traditional methods of handmade jewellery production, the ‘Crown’ is 18 carat gold-plated, embellished with over 100 rubies, sapphires, emeralds, garnets, amethysts, and black diamonds and finished with intricate pavé set diamonds around the collar. The ‘Crown’ itself has been carved from wax, using hand tools, then cast using the lost wax process and finished with the inlaying of the stones by hand.

Legendary Rankin’s studio was there, (having shot exclusive editorial stills), Selfridges’s and The Great Frog. Aurora is Crystal Head’s newest vodka, which debuted in autumn 2015 and features a spicier and bolder flavour profile. Guests to the preview enjoyed cocktails entitled ‘The Crystalized’, ‘Aurora Martini’ and ‘Negroni’ and enjoyed a DJ set by Phil Clifton.

Crystal Head Vodka is created from the finest peaches and cream corn, distilled four times and blended with pure water from Newfoundland. It is then filtered 7 times – 3 of those through semi-precious Herkimer diamonds; the resulting heady brew is free from additives, citrus oils, glycerols or sugars.
The distinctive skull bottle was designed by Dan Ackroyd and John Alexander to enhance the experience of drinking such a pure beverage.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
