We’ve just held our first, private event for the fetish community in New York City.
Our event host, Lucy Sweetkill, created a unique sensory experience exclusively for her guests.
They were blindfolded for a heightened taste-discovery, and then led through a strictly instructed series of sensory tasks; all with the intent of aiding their exploration of our unique flavor profile:
French gin infused with fig and botanicals:
juniper, cardamom, coriander, lime, sweet orange and angelica, with a soft finish with white wine added after distillation.
The event theme was glamorously risqué so guests dressed playfully.
Amidst the leather and latex they enjoyed signature Sweet Gwendoline French Gin cocktails: The Provocateur, Delight and Bewitch and Sweet G & T, and a mocktail, Strawberry Blonde.
As an homage to the fetish artistry of John Willie and his wife and muse Holly Anna Faram, the night was based on the aesthetic of his publishing project: BIZARRE magazine, and menus, postcards and posters all featured his illustrations.
The seductive red lights were turned down, an ethereal playlist filled the room, and the night unfolded…
Thanks to @Lucy.Sweetkill and her team for hosting and bottoms up! to all who attended.
