London private members’ club Home House is to run social and educational events for bartenders in association with Diageo’s Ketel One vodka.
With the first event scheduled for Sunday October 20, it aims to promote the West End venue as a place for bartenders and mixologists.
The evening event will be one of the first outings for David Beatty since taking over as UK brand ambassador for Ketel One after 18 months as ambassador for the brand in Australia.
David will create a range of Martinis and other cocktails from Home House’s mobile Ketel One drinks trolley, created for use in the Drawing Room – one of the four bars at the members’ club. The other bars include the House Bar (pictured), designed by architect Zaha Hadid.
Head chef Jeremy Brown, who previously worked at The Ritz, will also create canapés that match the cocktails.
Ketel One is the pouring vodka at Home House and is used in a number of cocktails in the club’s Bison Bar.
October’s event is set to be the first in an occasional series of events for bartenders as well as sommeliers and chefs.
