Apéritif launches Guernsey’s first Cocktail Week
Apéritif, Guernsey’s luxury mobile bar service, has confirmed that it will be sponsoring and taking on lead organisation of Guernsey’s first ever Cocktail Week, with support from Visit Guernsey & Taste Guernsey, as part of the Guernsey International Food Festival.
James Le Gallez, Founder of Apéritif said: “As a long-time passion of mine, I am so glad to be spearheading Guernsey’s first Cocktail Week, to continue to help promote the local cocktail scene both locally and further afield”.
Guernsey Cocktail Week will take place on 16-24 September, as a brand new addition to Guernsey’s annual food celebration event. It will mark the island’s thriving cocktail scene and take place as a precursor to the lavish Guernsey International Food Festival, which showcases the best of the island’s thriving cuisine culture, with celebrity chefs, local producers, tastings, demonstrations, themed events and more.
A unique underground launch event
Guernsey Cocktail Week will kick off with a unique launch event at La Vallette Underground Military Museum and the Aquarium in St Peter Port. Tickets cost £30 and the admission will include three unique and delicious cocktails created exclusively by Apéritif and served by their expert mixologists.
A packed cocktail calendar
A further five cocktail events (and counting) – including workshops on the art of mixology – will then take place throughout the week at some of the island’s most exciting bars, offering festival attendees a superb opportunity to experience thrilling new cocktails in fantastic new locations. See details of the participating bars here at www.cocktailweek.gg. Festival attendees with a wristband will be able to buy a selection of delicious artisan cocktails for £5 at these participating bars, discovering exciting new flavours, classics with a twist and entirely unique new recipes to tempt the tastebuds!
Discounts and offers
An additional series of retailers have also signed up to the event, and will be offering a variety of attractive discounts and offers to festival goers.

To access the full array of generously discounted drinks, exclusive access to cocktail events and special offers, members of the public will need to purchase a wristband online for £10 at www.cocktailweek.gg or from La Maison De Champagne or The Crown Club at the OGH.
