It’s International Women’s Day and this year, like most of our activities, every celebration has gone virtual. So the question is, how can you celebrate this iconic and progressive day? Bombay Sapphire has partnered with Katy Hessell, founder of The Great Women Artists, and organised a virtual event.
Bombay Sapphire is a brand with women at the helm of its creativity and success, including Dr. Anne Brock, the brand’s Master Distiller. Collaborating on this International Women’s Day Panel seems like the perfect venture for one of our favourite gin brands.
Inspiring Women Panel
Showcasing females of the future across the arts and drinks industries, the conversation will focus on what stirs each woman’s creativity. Katy will be hosting a line up of inspirational women, featuring gin gurus to badass bartenders.
The panel members will include:
- Anne Brock, Bombay Sapphire’s Master Distiller and gin guru
- Anna Sebastian, The Artesian Bar’s Bar Manager and creative powerhouse behind its cocktail menu
- Sandrae Lawrence, cocktail connoisseur
- Faye Wei Wei and Charlotte Edey, contemporary artists
The past year has been especially tough on the hospitality industry and everyone has had to learn to adapt. As part of the event, each talented female will share their creative experiences and how they’ve adjusted amidst a pandemic. From new creative mediums to virtual bars, it’s all been a new chance at connecting with their audience in an alternative way.
This panel talk is part of Bombay Sapphire’s Stir Creativity platform. Both Sandrae and Anna will be showcasing how the iconic blue-bottled gin can be the perfect canvas for cocktail creativity. With two bespoke drinks with which to celebrate International Women’s Day, viewers will have the chance to put their mixology skills to the test.
The panel will take place later this evening – Monday 8th March, from 7pm – 8.30pm. Tickets are available on a ‘pay what you feel’ basis via Eventbrite. All proceeds from ticket donations will go to charity: the choice being female fellows at the Artist Benevolent Fund.
