It's a Party on your Palate!

The Ambassadors of William Grant & Sons invite you to dance the night away in splendid style. There will be more than a mouthful of delicious cocktails and nibbles with special guests behind the bar, on the mic and right where you least expect them.

Dresscode: snappy.
