British Cassis, Fishers gin and The London Essence Company team up for a summer of British gin cocktails

Visitors of the Royal Academy’s 251st Summer Exhibition (10 June – 12 August 2019), will as always be treated to art in all its varieties, colours and flavours. This year however, the creativity doesn’t end in the exhibition space as Peyton and Byrne launches its new gin-focused cocktail menu, extending the choice of tastes to reflect this iconic London event.

Three quintessentially British drink brands, British Cassis, Fishers gin and The London Essence Company, have collaborated to create a trio of drinks that mix English summertime ingredients into new flavours for the season. The result is a unique and elegant choice of cocktails to round off the exhibition experience.

The RA G&T is ideal for fans of fruity and woody combinations, as Fishers gin is paired with London Essence Company grapefruit & rosemary tonic. Crisp and subtly spicy The RA Pink ties Fishers gin with London Essence Company rhubarb & cardamom soda and fresh lime. The Cassis G&T brings together the rich blackcurrant flavours of British Cassis with the coastal aromas of Fishers gin, the sweet citrus notes of London Essence tonic and fresh mint.

The RA says “What better way to enjoy the Summer Exhibition than with a cocktail that combines creativity, passion and artistry. We’re pleased to work with three drinks partners to bring a unique summer tasting experience to our visitors”.

After enjoying the Summer Exhibition, visitors will be able to relax with their G&Ts of choice at the two gin bars, the Courtyard Café and the Shenkman Bar, next to The Keepers House, which are all in the admission-free part of the exhibition.

The bars will be open seven days a week 11am-5.30pm daily and Fridays until 10pm.
