Friendship is a beautiful bond that brings joy and laughter into our lives. It’s a connection that deserves to be celebrated, and with International Friendship Day coming up on the 30th of July, we wanted to share with you some of our favourite ways to get together with our friends. Whether you enjoy a laid-back gathering, or an exciting adventure, there are plenty of activities you can enjoy with friends, some of which involve raising a glass (or two!). In this blog we’ll dive into a few of these ideas that combine the spirit of Friendship Day with enjoyable drinking moments.


A BBQ is a classic choice for spending a fun-filled day with friends. Fire up the grill, prepare some delicious food, and gather your favourite beverages for a fantastic feast. From craft beers and refreshing cocktails, to mocktails and infused waters, there’s something for everyone’s taste buds.


However, we all know how the British weather can be so don’t worry, we’ve also got you covered for those irritatingly frequent rainy days. When you’re stuck indoors, a great way to connect with friends is with a cosy film night, which can be made even more enjoyable with a touch of creativity. Select a theme, such as “mobster movies”, “80’s classics”, or “Disney” and get comfortable with some blankets and pillows. But before you settle in be sure to grab your favourite snacks and a drink to suite the theme. Whether it’s ‘Mamma Mia’ that gets you in the mood for a Tropical Breeze, or ‘The Godfather’ has you emulating ‘Vito’ with a glass of scotch, there’s memories to be made and laughter to be shared as you get sucked into your favourite stories.


If you and your friends appreciate the finer things in life, a wine and cheese tasting party is a perfect choice. Select a variety of your favourite cheeses, from creamy brie to sharp cheddar, and pair them with a selection of reds, whites, and rosés. Explore the different flavours and textures as you enjoy some good conversation with your friends. This is a great idea for an evening get together, with the opportunity to not only savour some great tasting food and wine, but also to learn a little about them as you do.


For those seeking a more adventurous experience, you should consider organising a brewery or winery tour with your friends. There plenty of guided tours that take you behind the scenes, allowing you to learn about the production process and sample a wide range of beverages. Immerse yourselves in the rich aromas and flavours and relish the opportunity to explore new taste profiles together. Raise your glasses to the friendships that have flourished over time and celebrate the exciting journey you’re on together.

Another great way to commemorate your most meaningful friendships this Friendship Day is by create a time capsule. You could include notes, pictures and items that represent your bond with your friends and remind you of the best moments you’ve shared with each other. Then, decide on a future date to open it and relive the memories you’ve made together!


We believe that we should all make sure that our friends know how much they’re appreciated.
