Be blessed by the spirit at the Reverend JW Simpson

Reverend JW Simpson London bar

Praise be for Fitzrovia bar Reverend JW Simpson, which is back for another series of its Spirited Sermons - booze-fuelled masterclasses that preach the good word to cocktail converts looking to expand their knowledge. Spend an evening in the company of your favourite spirit, learning more about it through expert-tutored flights, then taste a selection of cocktails containing your favourite tipple.

For this series, the spirits in the limelight will include: Italian bitters (23 August); pisco (6 September); Blackwell’s Rum (20 September); cachaça (4 October); small-batch bourbons (18 October); Angostura bitters (1 November); Bruichladdich whisky (15 November) and Crystal Head vodka (29 November). So whether you’re looking to relive the Rio Olympics, or getting nostalgic about the Ghostbusters revival, there’s a sermon for you.

These Spirited Sermons take place from 6.30-8.30pm and cost £30, including three cocktails and a spirit flight. To book, visit Rev JW Simpson’s website.
