A Brief History

Once upon a time it was said a world-famous model asked for a something that would ‘wake me up, and then fuck me up’ - and that’s precisely what she got from British mixologist Dick Bradsell. An influential mix of vodka, coffee liqueur and espresso. It’s safe to say that this concoction definitely did the trick.

Since the creation in the 80’s bartenders and mixologists alike have found new and intuitive ways to carry out this now well-known classic. And that’s exactly what we’ve done with this event. Lee Jones, our very own head mixologist has put together some fantastic Christmas inspired tipples for your enjoyment. We will divulge in the history and complexity of this superior drink.

We hope to see you on the 6th of December at the one and only Smokestack!
