The Botanist Gin and Hunter Gather Cook do London Cocktail Week

For London Cocktail Week from 4-13 October, The Botanist Gin and Hunter Gather Cook are joining up to do something spectacular.

Top chef and director of Hunter Gather Cook, Nick Weston will create an innovative five-course menu served at Carousel from 1-5 October.


Perfect for lovers of: gin and food – in that order – the series of what they’re calling ‘wild dinners’ is put on by the gin masters at Botanist – turning out five-courses of culinary marvels, using seasonal UK produce created by Nick Weston of Hunter Gather Cook, along with perfectly paired foraged The Botanist cocktails crafted by Abigail Clephane, The Botanist Gin’s UK brand ambassador.

For the menu and what’s on, think along the lines of gamy Douglas fir cold smoked fallow deer, grilled wood pigeon breast, and blowtorched pheasant, and perfectly paired cocktails including the long and fizzy Fig Leaf, a peachy and tannic Nettle Gimlet and an earthy Truffle Martini.

Head along from 1-5 October from 7pm when the bar opens for a feed at 7.45pm. See more here.
