A delectable festival of drinks, twenty of London’s finest bars from Mayfair to Shoreditch come together every year to deliver an unforgettable cocktail experience in London’s most exclusive private garden. There’s always a wide range of trendsetting new cocktails and unique drinking experiences as each bar competes for your vote for the best bar-in-show experience. Mance Communications have worked with CITC on each iteration for three years with increasing interest and coverage following this established event on the vibrant London cocktail scene.
