Rivington Greenwich Hosts a Plymouth Gin Pop-Up In Time for the Tall Ships Weekend

SEEN loves the iconic area of Greenwich and the drink synonymous with the streets of the capital – gin. With fabulous synchronicity a new pop-up at Rivington Greenwich, partnered with Plymouth Gin, celebrates the fantastic Tall Ships Weekend (until 16th April 2017) in Maritime Greenwich.

To mark the special 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, Rivington Greenwich and Plymouth Gin have created a bespoke range of cocktails that reflect this historic nautical event – that will see ships sail from Greenwich to Quebec. The cocktails will be available throughout the summer and can be enjoyed at a beautiful marine theme terrace. Perfect now that the warmer weather is upon us.

SEEN is certainly looking forward to sampling the delights of a Five Knots;
Plymouth Navy Strength Gin, Homemade Jasmine and Grapefruit Sherbet, Lime Juice, Soda & Homemade Jasmine Essence Spirits. The glass will have a five-knot rope tied around it, representing Tall Ships. Or maybe a Cinnamon Smoke; Plymouth Navy Strength Gin, Campari, Antica Formula, Kamm & Sons Islay Cask. This drink is barrel aged to add smoky strong flavours resonant of wooden ships. The Pennant sounds rather lovely; Antica Formula, Lemon Juice, Merlet Apricot Brandy, Orange Juice, Plymouth Gin, Plymouth Sloe Gin. Or even The Gimlet; Plymouth Gin and Lime Cordial, simple and classic.

SEEN understands that it was a tradition in the Royal Navy that all newly commissioned ships received a “Plymouth Gin Commissioning Kit”, a wooden box containing two bottles of navy strength Plymouth gin and glassware. The Pop-up will be commemorating this with their very own Rivington x Plymouth Gin Commissioning Kit.

The Tall Ships Weekend marks the launch of the pop-up, where Rivington Greenwich will be hosting a series of Plymouth Gin Masterclasses with the Plymouth Gin UK ambassador and Jaiminee Patel, Rivington Greenwich Bar Manager. These will be held on Thursday13th April at 6pm and 14th April at 5pm. Tickets are from £20 each and include insights into Plymouth Gin, three testers and bar snacks; truly, a fabulous experience in historic surroundings. SEEN will be sampling the cocktails next week.

My Furry Lady: the Art of Marion Peck at Dorothy Circus Gallery

SEEN can safely say that there is nowhere quite like Dorothy Circus Gallery in Notting Hill. It is the very antithesis of the white, clinical art gallery that abounds in the capital. From the beautiful yet disquieting pop surrealist art that is the passion of gallery director Alexandra Mazzanti, to the welcoming gallery itself complete …
