    Given how easy it is to become attached to your local pub or bar, it’s great to see that lots of bars are willing to participative in this event; it’s educational, and gives people the confidence to try new flavours and new places which can ultimately only drive the growth of wonderful new companies wanting to attract brave alcohol enthusiasts! No one could ever finish trying all the cocktails in the world, so this event is both informative and really sociable – a great idea!
