The week in pictures

“There is no such thing as a zero waste bar”, according to Trash Tiki mixologists Kelsey Ramage and Ian Griffiths, who gave a “Sustainable Bar 101” seminar at last week’s Tahona Society Collective Spirit competition, encouraging discussion on all aspects of “organic vs. local” bar set-up as well as encouraging social initiatives for staff and the wider community. Here, using the Altos Tequila VW Campervan, part of the extended Trash Tiki team serve up Paloma cocktails in the distillery grounds to refresh competitors after a seminar on Altos two brand pillars ‘People’ and ‘Planet’.

During the trip, drinks writer Sophie McLean got the chance to have a Blue Weber agave plant, grown 2,100m above sea level on volcanic rich soil, named after her. The plants will grow for seven years, making up to 8 bottles of 100% Agave Tequila per ‘piña’.
