#seventailstwist has employed the skills of Joe Schofield, Anna Sebastian, Max Venning, Maxim Schulte, Jo Last, Erik Lorincz and Chris Moore to create a twist on a classic Sazerac using ingredients found in their homes. The resulting 6 x 700ml drinks will be sold through London retailer Top Cuvée with a reserve of £600 for the full set of six drinks with 100% of profits going to charity.
Joe Schofield of Schofields Bar has created his drink at home in Manchester with Earl Grey and Passionfruit, Max Venning of Three Sheets has used Raspberries and Jo Last of The Beaufort Bar at The Savoy has been working with Banana and Champagne. Anna Sebastian of Artesian played with Sauternes & Pear, Erik Lorincz, owner of Kwãnt, used fresh Fennel instead of Absinthe and Chris Moore focused on Ground Coffee – resulting in a collection of cocktails that are both connected and varied, and can easily be enjoyed at home by pouring over ice.

Seven Tails co-founder and chief operating officer Joel Fraser has chosen to benefit the charity REFUGE, as 1.6 million women experienced domestic abuse last year, and self-isolation has the potential to aggravate pre-existing abusive behaviours by perpetrators. Sandra Horley CBE, Chief Executive of National Domestic Abuse charity Refuge explains ‘While in lockdown or self-isolation, women and children are likely to be spending concentrated periods of time with perpetrators, potentially escalating the threat of domestic abuse and further restricting their freedom. ‘In the current climate, it is certainly more challenging for women suffering abuse. Lines of communication could be severely limited if women are unable to leave the home.’
