Poetry Meets Gin at Beefeater’s Distillery

Creative juices will be in abundance this winter at Beefeater London’s Kennington Distillery with their series of cultural and creative events, known as The London Tonic Series. The first of the events will be a spoken word with celebrated poet and musician Joshua Idehen; it’s fitting that gin was the favoured tipple of literary heroes of the past.

The distillery is set to be transformed into a speakeasy, in the truest sense of the word. Idehen will be reciting verses in his signature style, while attendees will be given different gins and bespoke literary cocktails. Sure, we all turn into poets after a few gins, but if you want to learn how to read poetry aloud like a professional, Idehen will be leading a mini masterclass. Think of this event as an early Christmas present from Beefeater, because it’s completely free! And yes, that includes the cocktails and who doesn’t love a free cocktail. Combine all this with a tour of the distillery and you’ve got a day brimming with culture.

Guests will be invited to make a charitable contribution to the London Tonic Series’ charity arts partner, the City & Guilds of London Art School.

The London Tonic Series will run until June 2017.
