Housed in a huge wooden crate, reminiscent of the old wooden cargo crates that were used to smuggle Cutty Sark whisky 90 years ago, the inaugural Cutty Cargo event celebrated the best of London’s talent last Thursday.
Inviting lucky guests to Ely’s Yard, just off Brick Lane, Cutty Cargo London was the first stop on a four-city tour that sees the crate take in the New York and Barcelona skylines en route to Tokyo.
69 Colebrooke Row mixologists put together some delicious whisky cocktails while burgers from MAT Liquor really hit the spot. Though with proceedings running late we had to leave before Jessie Ware took to the stage, we did catch the great art on the walls from It’s Nice That and Flat-e. Performance art skits from the Shanty Theatre Company didn’t work so well but it was still an really fun evening, catch the Cutty Cargo tour if it comes to a city near you: https://www.facebook.com/CuttySarkWhisky/app_279081025568184
