This London bar will pay for someone to travel the world and drink gin
Swanning around the world sipping on G&Ts sounds like the stuff of dreams — let alone an actual job. Now a London bar group are making it a reality for one lucky gin-lover.
To celebrate the launch of their new site, the Mr Fogg’s team are offering someone the chance to travel around the globe with a friend tasting gins and collecting botanicals. The traveller will then bring back their findings to serve at the new Society of Exploration bar, which is opening this autumn in Charing Cross.
The chosen individual will be taken on an ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ style tour along with a friend of their choosing. The tour will take in Mumbai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, San Francisco, New York, Lisbon and many other stops.
The two lucky travellers will follow the legendary route of Jules Verne’s fictional explorer Phileas Fogg, for whom the bars are named. They will also be gifted with an atlas, journal, luggage tags and a hip flask to take with them, courtesy of Aspinal of London.
For the project, the Mr Fogg’s team and owners Inception Group have teamed up with adventurer Levison Wood – who once attempted to walk the entire length of the Nile.
The candidate will be required to document their journey through social posts, digital videos and photographs. So naturally, being active on social media and having good photography skills is a must. A valid passport and a passion for gin are also essential.
