Other venues across Cheltenham will be selling the Cheltenham Trio, three individual cocktails based on gin, vodka and whisky. The ingredients will be revealed closer to the events.

"We think the Cheltenham Trio will create a lot of interest across the town. We're hoping to engage even more businesses than last year and believe that many will pick up new customers, not just during the week but for the months ahead."

Pernod Ricard UK is supporting Cheltenham Cocktail Week for the second year.

Business development executive, Keli Toseafa, said: "The Pernod Ricard brand ambassadors will be bringing their expertise to some great events and will be informing as well as entertaining. We're delighted to be working with Cheltenham BID again in such a fantastic town."
