The spirits world rung in the New Year this week with a host of high-profile parties, celebrity appearances and countless cocktails. First up, Nikki Beach at Caribbean island Saint Barts welcomed chart-topping DJ Kygo to its New Years celebrations, which were inspired by “chateau chic meets punk rock”. The Higher Love DJ appeared at the festivities alongside a Queen-influenced dance show from Visionair and “regal elements reinterpreted in a modern style”.
Alcohol education charity Drinkaware has teamed up with UK-based supermarket chain Asda in a partnership that will see Drinkaware ambassadors visit 100 stores across the UK. The Drinkaware ambassadors will be giving out leaflets and encouraging customers to record their drinking levels – using scratchcards and the online Drinkaware DrinkCompare Calculator. This will be the third year of the initiative, which last year saw in-store Drinkaware ambassadors engage with almost 7,000 Asda customers.
