Last night Ruth Ball, drinks alchemist and author of Rebellious Spirits: The Illicit History of Booze in Britain, hosted a fantastic evening of contraband stories and delicious punch at the gorgeous Century Club in Soho. The audience was taken on a journey through the evocative history of the secret, exciting and often dangerous world of illicit spirits while sipping on deliciously deadly historical cocktails. We'll certainly be making a few knockout punches this Christmas!
