An evening with the Reverend JW Simpson and the Bitter Truth doesn’t sound much fun, does it? Fear not, it won’t involve a bug-eyed cleric preaching hellfire and damnation, or some dodgy heavy-metal band, but is an altogether cheerier proposition. The Rev JW, a classy new cocktail bar in Fitzrovia, is hosting a cocktail masterclass by the Bitter Truth, a German outfit that is re-creating historic cocktail bitters and liqueurs for today’s drinkers. Expect an informative lecture on the flavours and provenance of the company’s liqueurs, followed by a making and tasting session – with cocktail prices discounted for the rest of the evening. Space is limited, so book ahead if you can, or arrive early.
6.30-8pm, £10. For bar details, see Reverend JW Simpson listing.
