Cocktail of the Month: Cockpit County Shandy

And the winner of September's cocktail of the month is...

Ali Fraser with his Cockpit County Shandy!

Ali overcame a double handicap of being Sam's flatmate and a friend of Jim's (he was put through the ringer with some seriously tough questions about both Appleton and his drink) to win his first competition with us, and wins the range of Appleton Rums up to and including the epic Rare Limited Edition Appleton Estate rum 21 year old.

Available throughout all our venues for the month of September.
