G-IN the net!


Thursday 29th August 2019

Event start: 18:00

Bloody Ben's





Our dedicated and loyal Business Club raised the bar yet again earlier this month to give us a much-needed tonic.

The club hosted another one of their legendary monthly events – this time a gin-tasting evening at Ben’s Canteen in Earlsfield. And it really packed a punch!

Ben's Canteen, is a relaxed neighbourhood hangout that does Dinner, cracking Cocktails and exciting Wines and then come the weekend, a really indulgent Brunch with banging Bloody Marys. We would recommend!

Bens’ aim was to create an alternative to the pub. And we think he did exactly that.

I absolutely love going to the pub, especially for an all dayer or a boozy Sunday lunch, however, sometimes you just want that same relaxed spirit but not in a pub. Where to go in SW London? I was never sure.

Receiving a warm welcome from Ben himself club members enjoyed drinks and delicious nibbles before hearing all about how the concept first started and the different types of gins that you can try here are the Canteen.

Commercial Director, Ivor Heller gave his famous welcome speech which included latest news on the club’s crowdfunding campaign.

As the evening went on guests sampled a selection of gins – and then voted on which one they liked the most.

Naturally, it was purely in the interests of research because the winning tipple, yet to be revealed, will be named the new official signature gin of AFC Wimbledon.

So cheers everyone – and many thanks for entering into the spirit of things…
