Smith & Sinclair to launch edible cocktail pop-up at Bluewater

Land Securities has today announced that Smith & Sinclair, the creators of the world’s first Edible Cocktails and flavour specialists, are launching their first standalone pop-up store at the Bluewater shopping complex this month.

Located in Bluewater’s popular Arcade area, adjacent to Rituals and Il Gusto, the 465 sq ft pop-up store, called The Flavour Rooms, will officially launch on 17 November until 2 January.

The new store will feature specially created products including the brand’s trademark range of edible alcoholic cocktail pastilles, a cocktail sherbet wall, edible perfumes, confectionary ‘salt and pepper’ shakers and alcoholic dib dabs. Shoppers will also be able to breathe in flavoured aromas from cascading domes infused with seasonal flavours.

Founders Melanie and Emile’s tireless pursuit in creating value-added and engaging sensory experiences, has caught the attention of buyers at leading premium retailers including Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Fortnum and Masons whose shelves bear the brand’s luxe and sensual sweets.

Heinz Kloihofer, Bluewater’s Mall Leasing Manager, commented, “This innovative, premium concept is something we felt would really get people talking and is the perfect complement to the retail and dining brands here already. This type of offer adds another unique, stand-out experience for people visiting Bluewater and would appeal as a bespoke seasonal gift idea.”

Melanie Goldsmith, co-founder of Smith & Sinclair, added, “Bluewater is the perfect location for our first standalone pop-up store and to showcase our original offer in a prime retail setting, outside of central London. The centre has a reputation for leading retail experiences, and we can’t wait to share our concept with its shoppers in the lead up to Christmas.”

This news follows the recent opening of The Frizzenti Fizz! Bar, as well as international and high-end retail brands including Michael Kors and Mint Velvet. CK underwear and luxury jewellery brand Pravins are also due to open later this year.
