NO.3 GIN AND ALESSANDRO PALAZZI LAUNCH A BOTTLED VESPER MARTINI

The new James Bond movie may be delayed again but you can still recreate a bit of that 007 magic at home thanks to the new pre-bottled Vesper Martini from No.3 Gin. The four-time winners of the World’s Best Gin have teamed up with Alessandro Palazzi of DUKES in Mayfair (known for serving up the best Martinis in town) to create the cocktail.

The £39.95 bottle, available exclusively at Selfridges, contains five serves and has been perfectly mixed so all you have to do is pour. The label, created in collaboration with Justin Zoll, features a crystallised and 40x magnified photograph of the liquid, and is available to buy as a limited-edition print.

To celebrate the launch, No.3 Gin is taking over the Selfridges rooftop for the rest of October, with a series of interactive events throughout the month. Martini Mondays will see No.3 Gin hook up with DUKES, The Gibson and Bar Swift to shake up unique takes on the Martini. No.3 Gin ambassador Ross Bryant will be running Martini masterclasses (all socially distanced and held in heated huts) where you can learn about the history of the cocktail and conduct some all-important taste tests too. Tickets cost £40 and include 10% off the pre-bottled Vesper Martini, a branded tote bag and No.3 Gin print, and you can email to book your spot. CHEERS.
