Londoners, it’s time to say cheers and raise a toast to our city! Leading bar and restaurant group, Drake & Morgan, has partnered with Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, on a limited-edition Procession Lager and five new beer-infused cocktails to celebrate the annual Lord Mayor’s Show, taking place on Saturday, 13th November.
Welcoming back the 800-year-old City of London tradition in style, seven of Drake & Morgan’s popular city locations will be offering the lager and ‘Beertails’ for parade-goers to enjoy along the procession route.
The five ‘Beertails’ (£9.95 each) have been developed by Drake & Morgan’s expert bar team and all feature Shepherd Neame’s Procession lager in contemporary serves featuring premium spirits including; a tequila-based Spice’n’Ice with James’ cordial, lime juice and El Jimador blanco tequila; a Black Beer with bourbon, crème de mure, lemon juice, sugar and blackberries; and a B&B with cognac, Martini blanco and orange bitters.
The Lord Mayor’s Show brings together more than 8,000 people and 140 performers to parade the streets of London as a 250-year-old gold carriage tours The City. Paying homage to the return of the historic event in 2021 and the support The Lord Mayor provided Drake & Morgan throughout the pandemic, the special Procession Lager brew and ‘Beertails’ are available at perfectly positioned venues on the route.
To experience the new Procession Lager and cocktails, head to: The Folly, The Drift, Devonshire Terrace, The Anthologist, Refinery Bankside, The Happenstance and The Moniker. Procession Lager (£4.95 per bottle) will be available from selected Shepherd Neame pubs in London, including: Samuel Pepys; Cock & Woolpack; Princess of Prussia; White Swan; and Eleanor Arms.
Special cocktail serves will be available at Drake & Morgan from 8th – 14th November. Find out more about the event here.
