"Calling on experience from across the industry, they bring an understanding of the intricacies of the cocktail world, but marry it with a consumer insight that has kept things fresh and ahead of the curve. Now branching out into new ways to bring the consumer and trade worlds together, the London (and global) cocktail scenes owe them a huge debt!"
Ryan Chetiyawardana, Mr Lyan
"They are huge role models in our drinks industry. What I admire about Hannah is that she never rests on her laurels - always evolves, improves and evaluates. Siobhan is a real doer who manages multiple stakeholders seamlessly across all festivals. Without their constant effort to bring the industry together, it would be a very dull and boring scene indeed.”
Shervene Blackburn, Bacardi Ltd

Both the industry and the city are better off since London Cocktail Week launched back in 2010.”
JJ Goodman, London Cocktail Club

Anna Sebastian, The Langham
“Not only is London Cocktail Week flagged in any cocktail-loving Londoners' diary, but the week also give access to the capital's best cocktails for those less acquainted with London's drinks scene. It's a testament to the event's organisers that London's top bars sign up to take part without question every year."
