Anyone who knows us well, know’s how much we enjoy our clients, friends and family together for a good time! Our portfolio of bespoke bar commissions continuously grows with our design team committed to creating something truly unique that can sit so naturally in an entertainment environment. Whether that be through our famous Krantz champagne bar (as seen in our Bailgate showroom), bespoke wine wall or our very own pop up gin bar we know how to create fun spaces to be enjoyed in every social situation.

I’m not sure about you, but looking at all these bespoke bars has made us a little thirsty! That is why we have paired up with our good friends Deco 22 to provide you with three ‘must have!’ gin cocktail recipes.
Deco No.22 is an exquisite London Dry Gin. London Dry Gins have stood the test of time and remain popular for their classic flavour profile and Deco No.22 is no exception. With its juniper forward style and fresh citrus peels used in distillation, Deco No.22 creates the most beautiful Gin and Tonic and is the perfect base for cocktails.
Sammi and Adam have shared a few of their favourite Deco No.22 recipes. Whilst some methods may mention cocktail shakers or mixing glasses for example, this really isn’t important when making drinks at home – jugs and spoons can work just as well! Also, where we may recommend a particular garnish for example, be creative and adapt recipes as you see fit.
Even when we have to stay at home, we can still enjoy a nice variety of drinks and the important thing is to create, experiment and have fun with it.
The classic G & T is one of the finest drinks in the world and one of the simplest to make.
