Londoners will be able to cool off in style at the South Bank this Thursday, with hundreds of chilled cans of gin and tonic being given out by the river.
Gin company Greenall’s has installed a silver cube by the river near Oxo Tower Wharf, containing 1,000 cans of gin and tonic, which a barman will give out to punters between 12pm and 4pm. The cans will be served at 5C, which Greenall’s says is the perfect temperature for a gin and tonic.
“Despite the uncertainty of the British weather, one thing is for sure, no-one enjoys sipping on a lukewarm drink,” said Greenall’s marketing manager Stacey Kong. “We’re therefore proud to be just the tonic for Brits this summer with the launch of the ‘Greenall’s ice cube’ and can’t wait to serve our award-winning gin to the capital later this month.”
