Come along to Wales’s first Fair Spirits cocktail party on Wednesday 30th September between 4.30pm – 6.30pm at the Temple of Peace, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3AP
There will be samples available of different cocktails made from Fairtrade certified spirits and mixers and also ‘mocktails’ made from Fairtrade fruit juices. There are over 4,500 Fairtrade certified products in the UK, so Wales is hosting a social event for people interested in finding out more about Fair Trade and the products that are available.
The Fairtrade spirits are being procured from a company called Fair Spirits, a brand dedicated to high quality products that are sources ethically and sustainably. Fairtrade ingredients include organic sugar cane grown in Belize, organic arabica from Mexico, natural juniper berries from Uzbekistan and spices from South West India.
Elen Jones, Fair Trade Wales National Coordinator, said: “Following the recent announcement of the Global Goals, this evening will be a great opportunity to celebrate in the world’s first Fair Trade Nation and for people to learn about fair trade. Fair Trade makes a real difference to producers and workers in developing countries and helps us combat climate change, battle inequality and improve education around the world.”
There will also be, wine tasting, film showings, talks sharing stories behind our favourite products and stalls selling Fair Trade goodies.
The event aims to provide an opportunity for people to find out more about Fair Trade and the people behind our favourite products, showcase new and exciting Fair Trade products including spirits, soft drinks and crafts and enable people to meet staff from Fair Trade Wales and Hub Cymru Africa as well as Fair Trade supporters from around Wales.
It is open to anyone who wants to learn more about Fair Trade and will also be attended by Fair Trade supporters and organisations from around Wales. RSVP – firstname.lastname@example.org
