imbibe is a big hospitality show happening in earl's court centre in west london.
a big umbrella encapsulating all sides of the trade; from dishwashers, to bar snacks, obscure spirits, herby gin, toffee vodka and all sorts of wine, from different counrties and regions as well as plenty of free plonk, to try and try again and finally leave the show full of ideas/ inspiration/ contacts or drunk.
i distinguished the toffee vodka and gin mare with rosemary or basil and connected with a big wine company for sales on returns.
saw some folk and met some new and left pretty tipsy, to go and meet the boys in the pouring rain for a yummy turkish, devoured happily. in stepney green.
