About the Liqueurs: Top-shelf Only!!

This is a sample list from last year. We will have new line-up this year.

£17 per bottle: Arran Gold is a cream liqueur based on Arran's single malt whisky, and was named as the 'World's Best Whisky Liqueur' at Whisky Magazine's World Whisky Awards 2007 - what more recommendation do you need?

£18 per bottle: A chocolate liqueur from the choccy experts at Thornton's. Rich, smooth and deliciously decadent. Great as an ice cream topping or to bolster a hot chocolate.

£33 per bottle A top-quality Cherry Brandy from De Kuyper, in small batches of 2500 bottles. This XO is made with 12yo Grande Champagne XO Cognac and a double dose of no less than four varieties of cherries (including Maraska) - as well as being packaged in a rather fabulous art deco bottle inspired by the brand's original 1920s packaging.

£30 per bottle Rather more special than the famous Bristol Cream, this is a super-luxurious Pedro Ximenez sherry from Harvey's, comprised of solera-aged sherry over 30 years old. Incredibly rich, sweet and unctuous. Winner of a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge 2010 and a Bronze at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Plus a few more interesting treats, like Bols Cassis Foam!!!!

About the venue:The historic Coach and Horses is the oldest Young's Pub and is located just south of Hammersmith in the charming village of Barnes. The pub boasts an amazing back garden fitted with a beach hut and a trendy private room, which is perfect for any glamorous party!
