Drunk so many M&S tins this summer that you’re basically Percy Pig now? Never want to look a Tyskie in the eye again? Good news. We’ve sourced some extra special tins to stock up on for the bonus week of summer we’re getting next week. Our choices?
1. Hackney distillery 58 Gin is in on the hard sparkling water act, using its spirit to make raspberry and pink-grapefruit seltzers.
2. Prefer your tinned gin in a cocktail? Hippy Fizz from Porter’s Gin is like Um Bongo for adults. It’s technically made in Aberdeen but London bartenders are the brains behind it.
3. East London Liquor Company is also crafting cans: faves include vodka and rhubarb.
4. But if tinnies mean beer, there’s a West Coast IPA renaissance. Pick up a can of London Beer Factory’s Big Sur – like being hit by a massive fruity wave.
And if it rains? Head to one of the best bars in London.
