You've tried taking to Teletext, suffered your way through competition entries and even tried convincing the credit card company that this one's on them, but let's be honest folks, a taste of the Caribbean has been kind of hard to come by.
Giving you the chance to to swathe in sweet treats and soaring spirits, brand new rum company Duppy Share have abandoned all notions of pity-plane flying with a pop-up a little closer to home. Launching this March 12th in the Maxilla Social Club in Notting Hill, the oak-aged spirits of the Share introduce a series of six monthly pop-up bars at The Spirits Social, every second Thursday of the month. Brimming with signature cocktails, street food artisans and a backdrop of candelabras, a gramophone, and vintage glassware, this is set to be a blend of 1930s speakeasy cum cabaña. Think Don Draper meets Toots Hibbert.
Not only is Duppy Share the star of this spirits show, the Caribbean brand will also be introducing four hot new spirits to those cuddle those lush lips, and the credit card company aren't even invited. Well, unless they buy a ticket.
Tickets are available here and include a free Duppy Share cocktail. Dates: Thursdays 12th March, 9th April, 14th May, 11th June, 9th July
