Hipchips and Gordon’s Gin: Favourite Things

There are many things that SEEN can resist, but not those most British favourites – gin and crisps. Imagine her delight when she heard that GORDON’S Gin has partnered with Soho’s new crisp and dips café HIPCHIPS to launch a bespoke crisps ‘n’ dip snacking box, exclusively for London Evening Standard’s first ever London Food Month.

HipChips X Gordon's 4

The unusual, quirky sweet and savoury flavour combinations alongside a Gordon’s premix Gin and Tonic should titillate the tastebuds of sophisticated Londoners. They’re available to purchase for the month of June at Hipchips, Soho, London.

With World Gin Day on 10th June (SEEN will certainly be marking this auspicious day), Hipchips will be offering a free Gordon’s premix G&T can* when you order the exclusive Gordon’s crisps ‘n’ dips snacking box, instore or online.

In line with Hipchip’s signature homemade British sweet and salted crisps, hand-made every day in Soho, Hipchips and Gordon’s have created three deliciously moreish savoury and pudding-style dips with an unexpected and delightful Gordon’s gin twist. Flavours include:

• Beets, Maple, Feta and Gordon’s Gin
• Lime and Gordon’s Gin Cheesecake
• Gooseberry, Elderflower and Gordon’s Gin

SEEN would like to wish readers a Happy World Gin day. We know you’ll be celebrating…

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
