Smith & Sinclair
Something a little different with two exciting pop-ups for the festive season at Sanderson hotel and Bluewater, set to capture the imagination of the city and beyond. Think of an emporium of alcoholic and edible wonders, and you’re on your way their with the The Flavour Rooms. They will feature specially created products from the adult play pioneers (Hello!!!!???), including a cocktail sherbet wall, pick ‘n’ mix, edible perfumes, twisted ‘salt & pepper’ shakers and alcoholic dib dabs for shoppers to discover, take home and enjoy over the festive season. (Okay so adult play pioneers weren’t what I was thinking…. awkward…)
Finally, they are also collaborating with Sanderson for Smith & Sinclair at Purple Bar, a cocktail bar serving a variety of alcoholic concoctions to exhilarate the senses including cocktails that change in flavour and taste.
