Since launching Fierce Botanics and our Apothecary Tonic No.1 in early Spring 2018 we have seen our list of stockists growing and our events diary rapidly filling up. It’s been an exciting journey. We hope you can join us at some of our forthcoming events.
It was our debut appearance at the hugely popular Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival at the Grange in Lewes recently. We served Fierce Tonic on its own and with Kraken Rum. It was a beautiful day, and the perfect setting, and we did a marathon of 7 non-stop hours, with an uninterrupted queue of friendly and enthusiastic guests tasting and chatting. The tonic was flying off the shelves and we made some wonderful new connections. This sell out event seems to go from strength to strength, there are some excellent food and drinks stalls, a stage with live bands, a buzzing atmosphere, and the star of the show is a huge white marquee, filled with stands from some of the best Sussex spirits, Champagne and sparkling wine producers, offering free tasters of their products as well as info and talks. Roll on Gin & Fizz 2019!
We have always been conscious of presenting our tonic as a hybrid, a drink that is so complex and tasty it satisfies alone as a long drink, and also compliments other spirits and drinks. To this end, we are super excited to be involved in the Summer Mindful Drinking Festival at the end of July at Spitalfields Market, London. It is managed by Club Soda, a vibrant, young organisation which serves the burgeoning alcohol free scene, putting on talks, events and offering ideas for tasty alcohol free serves and non-drinking friendly bars. There will be workshops, fairground games, live music, a chill out zone and a vast choice of delicious alcohol free and botanical drinks and healthy vegan food on offer.
On 2nd – 4th September we will be running an exhibitor stand at the prestigious Speciality & Fine Food Fair at Olympia, London, alongside some of the leading industry movers and shakers. We’re hoping this event will really put us on the map, within the premium, artisan drinks market.
We are delighted to now have a regular presence in our local community at the Friday Lewes Food Market, where the lovely Rosi is selling Fierce Tonic and other Fierce serves. Watch out for our stall at the Lewes Farmer’s Market on Cliffe High Street in the coming months too!
