Bars celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight with special cocktails


fair spirits

Bars across the UK are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight with cocktails developed with products from the Fair Spirits portfolio.

They are using Fair Vodka, Fair Rum, Fair Goji liqueur and Fair Café liqueur – all made with Fairtrade ingredients – on menus to tie in with the awareness campaign that runs from February 23 to March 8.

Fair Spirits called on bartenders to create cocktails that would “reflect that making the world a better place is in everyone’s hands and the ‘art of mixology’ is not incompatible with sustain¬ability”.

Bars have been encouraged to include the cocktails on their menus alongside the message, “With Fairtrade-certified products, you have the power to change the world every day”.

The activity will also urge people to donate to the Fairtrade Foundation at www.fairtrade.org.uk. The special cocktails are being promoted on social media with the hashtag, #ShareaFAIR.

Participating bars in London include Le Méridien, Sofitel St James, Ceviche, Andina, Skylon, Plateau, King & Co, Old Bengal Bar, Bread Street Kitchen, Drunken Monkey, Hackney Pearl, Hidden Room and The Culpeper. Outside of London, they include 12A in Cambridge and Tiger Hornsby in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Master classes are also being run with Fair Spirits, including Milk & Honey in Soho, London, on March 3, Urban Villa in west London on March 5 and The Hospital Club in Covent Garden on March 6.
