The Sun Tavern
Where we've featured it
For: Chocolate orange negronis.
Fa la la, this year has been a clusterfuck, la la la la. When faced by an unprecedented 21st century crisis and shopping for an uncle we’re 90% sure is called Brian, we like to turn to booze. If it happens to be festive booze, even better. Get yourself a batched bottle of chocolate orange negroni, buttered brandy, or a Christmas Old Fashioned as part of The Sun Tavern’s Christmas Quarantini cocktail kit. Or just buy one for your uncle. Two birds, one stone.
The Sun Tavern is part of the same family of drinking dens as our East End favourite Discount Suit Company and you can now hit up their online shop for everything from big bottled cocktails to a ‘lucky dip’ box of beers. Their Quarantini Kit for £30 comes with 4 large cocktail serves of either negroni, boulevardier, or old fashioned. The best part is they’re doing free same day delivery too.
What to get: The Party Drinks Hamper. Or as we call it, Hello Hangover.
Park party hang? Yeah, completed it mate. That’s what you’ll say once you order The Sun Tavern’s huge £80 boozy hamper. It includes - deep breath - rhubarb cider, whiskey finished ginger beer, strawberry kir cocktails, El Diablo cocktails, highballs, bottled negroni, and bottled daiquiri. They’re delivering nationwide and, most importantly, they’re selling beer pong kits too.
We could shed actual tears over the fact that this Valentine’s gift kit comes with ‘the last Rolo’ packaged in a tiny little bag. We’re edging towards full-blown bitter and even we find that fucking adorable. Aptly called ‘The Be My Facetime Valentine Kit’ from The Sun Tavern, your someone special will receive a big bottled strawberry vermouth and rhubarb cider cordial cocktail, fizz to top it up, the aforementioned very cute last Rolo, and a card with a time and number to call you on. Cupid could never.
Available for nationwide delivery.
For the mum that’s not a regular mum (she’s a cool mum): The Sun Tavern is offering a Strawberry Kir Kit. It’s got everything needed to make five cocktails at home. Including premixed Chamberyzette, Cocchi Rosa and vodka, and a bottle of prosecco. Pair it with some glasses from their online shop, and some coasters if you’re feeling fancy.
What they’ve got: Mulled wine, cocktail kits, and a keg with matching tankards.
Some people write love letters. Some people hand-make gifts for their loved ones. And some people shout ‘let me get you another drink!’. Yes, if your love language is basically booze, look no further than The Sun Tavern. Their online shop has £30 quarantini cocktail kits, bottles of mulled wine, and even mini kegs complete with tankards. Plus, they’re shipping internationally.
Whether you’re in desperate need of a sazerac, or desperately need to send a keg of Belgian beer to Birmingham for a reason you’d rather not disclose, The Sun Tavern has got your back. Not only are they delivering across London, they’re also delivering everything from their paloma kit to their London pilsner beer pong set internationally too.
