London’s largest cocktail party has just begun and that means all the best and brightest from the UK drinks scene are coming together to share stories, discuss current trends and celebrate the art of making cocktails. Experts from every side of the industry will be on-hand to deliver seminars and masterclasses that everyone can learn from.

In its fifth consecutive year, London Cocktail Week 2014 hosts an overwhelming amount of fun events – from unique experiences like being a part of the World’s Largest Rum Tasting to £4 cocktails at more than 200 partnering bars across the city.

And while this week gives libation lovers all over the city an opportunity to celebrate and raise a glass together with friends and colleagues in London, it’s also an important time of year for those working in the industry – in the UK and beyond.

So sip away, but listen up – here’s our Bright Sparks guide for those who want to expand their knowledge during this year’s LCW:
