32 bars, 9 premium spirits and 4 days of delicious drinks



It’s no secret that Athens is one of our very favourite destinations. It’s got rich culture, super sunshine and some absolutely outstanding cocktail bars. That’s why we were extremely happy to hop on a plane recently to check out the amazing Athens Fine Drinking by World Class.

This four-day event was a celebration of the very best in Athens cocktail bars – 32 of them in fact. Each bar served up three drinks based around the Diageo Reserve Portfolio –premium spirits including Tanqueray No. Ten Gin,  Ketel One and CIROC vodkas, Zacapa Rum and Don Julio Tequila, while whisky was covered by Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Bulleit and Cardhu.

As for those three serves they were all quite perfect. Literally. The Perfect Straight was all about the spirit in its individual glory. The Perfect Mixed showcased the spirit in a simple, long refreshing serve. While The Perfect Cocktail speaks for itself as it took each spirit in a unique and altogether deliciously different direction.

Athens Fine Drinking by World Class may be over for now (we’re already looking forward to it returning next year) but you can still check out the bars themselves. Do yourself a favour, book a few days in the Greek capital and enjoy your very own private fine drinking experience.
