How was your Valentine’s Day? We spent it in Bristol, at everyone’s favourite cocktail and hot dog joint – Filthy XIII, for an Umbrella Project takeover with our brothers in arms – Discount Suit Company.
Hitting the road for the day were Andy, Steve and Rebekkah (for emotional support), bartenders Matt and Ross (for drinks) and Umbrella Radio’s John Bandit (for music).
We threw a big ole party with a six strong cocktail menu featuring smash hits from The Sun Tavern and Discount Suit Company including Winchester Goose (Black Cow Vodka, French Vermouth, Giffard Green Melon, Gooseberry Shrub), Put Ya Dukes Up John (Old Forester Bourbon, Bán Poitin, Citrus, Giffard Banane du Brésil, Fourpure Juicebox), Three Tides (Rum, Amaro Montenegro, Citrus, Salted Mead Syrup, Herbersura) and our signature Beer and a Bump with our own Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beer and Sparkling Cider.
Not content with just one family holiday, we’re gearing up for a years worth of bar tours – one per month – so stay tuned. Coming to a city near you, soon.
