Hellfire Consortium at Barts

Barts is almost impossible to find, located inside the Chelsea Cloisters behind several hidden doors. Once you discover it though you’ll find it hard to leave, it’s a fun and exciting little bar with superior cocktails and friendly service.

I was invited here to discover the world of Sipsmith, the very special boutique distillery in Hammersmith. Our select group was treated to a very passionate and enthusiastic speech from brand ambassador and sales director James, interjected by tastes of the various spirits they make. Gin, vodka, and a summer blended fruity gin syrup (a better version of Pimm’s) was poured out, refreshing our parched palates.

When the presentation was over we had the chance to put our mixology skills to the test, bossing the bartender about for more lemon or less mint. An assortment of Sipsmiths gin cocktails were created, totally bespoke for that night!

These ‘Hellfire consortium‘ evenings we be held regularly, each time a small group will be invited along to try and taste the wonders of the Barts bar. It was great fun and even a little bit educational!
