A sake martini cocktail on a high table looking over the foyers and Barbican shop.

Marvel at the beloved Martini's history and taste a selection of perfectly-mixed cocktails at an evening with Sipsmith.

Join us ahead of World Martini Day to celebrate the famous Martini. Sipsmith's master distiller Jared Brown discusses the fascinating history of the beloved cocktail. Co-author of Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini, Jared describes the recipe to success in making "the elixir of quietude" (E.B. White).

Enjoy a G&T on arrival mixed with Sipsmith's finest London dry gin. Savour a Classic Martini and an Original 1888 Recipe Martini during the tasting, plus enjoy a Vesper Martini to end.
