Peter Spanton Drinks opens beach bar in partnership with British Airways
Peter Spanton Drinks is helping travellers enjoy the best of summer at Heathrow Airport, with the opportunity to toast the pleasures of a classic British seaside holiday before they fly to more exotic destinations with British Airways.

Across the summer, the Peter Spanton range is being paired with complementary premium spirits brands. The core menu from the beach hut bar includes:
- Perfect Paloma: Patrón Silver Tequila paired with Peter Spanton No.13 Salted Paloma;
- Gin & Tonic: Brentingby Pink Gin paired with Peter Spanton No.9 Cardamom Tonic.
- Whiskey & Ginger: Uncle Nearest American Whiskey paired with Peter Spanton No.3 Dry Ginger;
Also on offer are refreshing frozen cocktails in partnership with Brentingby, and a tempting choice of non-alcoholic cocktails. There will also be cocktail ‘specials’ featuring guest craft spirit brands, with August seeing One Gin create the Perfect 10 G & T serve.
Guests will be able to pick up a complimentary perfect pairing pack from the beach hut bar, featuring their choice of spirit miniature and Peter Spanton mixer. Prizes are on offer for the best photographs of travellers enjoying their drink on their journey or holiday, posted and tagged #BAsummerbeach on Instagram.
Darryl Burton, MD of Peter Spanton Drinks, said: “We’re delighted to be part of the BA Summer Festival and to welcome travellers from around the world to our very British beach hut bar. We’re working in partnership with excellent spirits brands to showcase the authentic flavours in our range, enabling guests to start their summer holiday in style by enjoying a drink less ordinary.
