Look out for videos of these cocktail recipes which will be showcased on our Instagram page for Ocado’s Gin Weekend (29th April – 1st May) with Diageo’s brand ambassadors Pippa & Christie. Christie has spent her career working in bars & restaurants across the globe, and so her international experience is a natural fit for Italian gin Villa Ascenti, along with her strong connection to food and drink culture. Similarly, Pippa has travelled the world with her career, working at The Savoy where she was awarded UK Bartender of the Year 2020, and she now represents Tanqueray gin as the UK brand ambassador.
