The best events at this year’s Cardiff Cocktail Week

The city’s only week long cocktail festival is returning this year after a triumphant 2017, and it’s promising to be even bigger and better

Cardiff  Cocktail Week is a relatively new thing,  but it is a must-visit for those who love to raise a glass to their favourite tipple.

Each bar will be teaming up with one of the world’s finest spirit brands for a week of events, parties, live music, dinners, tastings, masterclasses and a unique menu of selected discounted cocktails.

There is a lot to love for booze fans and cocktail freaks.

Here’s our pick of the best.  Chin Chin!
