The Botanist x Nutbourne

Following the huge success of our summer installation, we've once again partnered with The Botanist Gin to host a winter pop-up tent featuring foraged Christmas cocktails, warming festive tipples all paired with a daily-changing seasonal menu. The tent will be heated and ready to welcome groups of six looking for some celebratory drinks to bid farewell to Lockdown 2.0 and see in the festive season.

Nutbourne is located on Ransomes Dock, near Battersea Park, where the space outside the restaurant has been transformed allowing visitors to sip on Christmas cocktails beneath the beautifully decorated marquee. The perfect place to see in the Yuletide season with your chosen group of six, The Botanist Bar is open from Wednesday to Sunday and the tent will be fitted with heaters to ensure maximum comfort. With a selection of original cocktails and plenty of festive cheer to accompany, The Botanist and Tonic Winter pop-up is the ideal spot for after-work drinks or an alfresco weekend catch up with your nearest and dearest. Operating under a walk-in and bookings policy, great care has been taken by the team to ensure the safety and comfortable social distancing of guests. 

 The collaboration is inspired by our philosophy of 'what grows together, goes together’. Nutbourne bartenders and The Botanist Gin have worked together to develop a menu of bespoke cocktails that reflect a shared dedication to local and wild ingredients with flourishes of festive flavours across the board.

Our menu features beautifully spiced mulled wine and cider, with the option to add a shot of either The Botanist Gin, Cointreau Liqueur, Rémy Martin Cognac or Mount Gay Rum for good measure! And of course, The Botanist foraged and classic cocktails from Meadowsweet Spritz to an intriguing Black Martini made with juniper. Those looking for a tipple to help with the dropping December temperatures, the Gin and Tea is a hot cocktail sure to keep everyone warm throughout the coming weeks of outdoor socialising.

About The Botanist

The Botanist is conceived, distilled and hand-crafted at Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay using 22 foraged island botanicals. The Botanist’s professional forager, James Donaldson, hand-picks the botanicals for the gin one by one throughout spring, summer and autumn. The botanicals are then dried carefully before being distilled.  The 22 botanicals are slow simmer distilled with pure Islay spring water in a unique Lomond Still, affectionately nicknamed Ugly Betty, by Head Distiller Adam Hannett. The result is a gin that speaks of the locality and seasonality of Islay.
