Free gin and vodka cocktails in a chic private members’ club? Where do I sign?

Urban Coterie Chase London drinks event 2016

Gin lover or a vodka fan? Whichever spirit you prefer, if you’re any sort of connoisseur you’ll recognise the British brand Chase, whose premium gins and vodkas are made from scratch in Herefordshire and have won awards on the world stage – including ‘Best Vodka in the World’ at the prestigious San Francisco Spirits Competition.

And on 10 March, Chase Distillery is holding a tasting at Urban Coterie, a private members’ club on the 16th floor of the M by Montcalm Hotel. The club will be open to non-members for the event – so not only will you get to sample a range of Chase’s gins and vodkas (led by Chase’s Chris Watson), both neat and in cocktails, you also get a sneak peek inside one of the capital’s most sought-after spaces. Oh, and you’ll be treated to canapé-sized bites from the menu, which was devised by chefs Anthony Demetre (of Wild Honey and Arbutus fame) and Martin Zahumensky (formerly of Texture and Hibiscus) and includes nibbles such as pig’s head with ‘nduja mayonnaise, and potato doughnuts with Parmesan.

Tickets for this event are free for members and £10 for non-members. To reserve your place, just visit Chase’s ticketing page and sign up.
