LE DINER EN BLANC | FAINT HEART NEVER WINE FAIR LADY

September 4th

It’s secret, it’s exclusive, it’s Le Diner En Blanc. The infamous alfresco picnic event is returning and, in the true style of its 1988 Paris origin, it’ll make you feel like you’re vacationing in the south of France. Keeping to tradition, the location is secret, and the attire is an elegant white. There are already thousands on the waitlist, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on their socials and register for the list. It’s magnifique, darling…you don’t want to miss it.

NEW RARE HUSK RUM RELEASE | RULE OF RUM

Husk Cultivated Australian Rum is releasing a limited blend of 761 individually numbered bottles. The Lost Blend was drawn from American oak barrels filled between 2014 and 2016, both relatively dry seasons allowing full flavour development of the stalks, and bottled in August 2021. This is a complex blend that keeps on giving once poured into the glass, where bright sweet notes of lemon sorbet meet the aged, caramelised oak aromas. Don’t miss out and be sure to sign up so you can be one of the few who receive this limited blend.

The GC is offering up a great batch of delight for the remainder of the year. Don't forget to stay up to date so you don't miss out on all the fun. Have a blast, take a seat (or a shot), and relax as much as you need...
