New viral video by Relish ‘London’s new wireless broadband service’

In the video participants were asked to try and call their own landline number from memory and offered £50 cash if they could.

Relish’s 4G wireless network for central London means that you can get online without needing to wait for a broadband installation guy, long contracts or unwanted landlines.

Research commissioned by Relish reveals the death of the ‘home phone’
– Nearly half of Londoners only keep their home phone so they can access the internet
– Almost 40% of Londoners don’t know their own home phone number
– 56% don’t know how much they’re paying for their landline each month
– Over half ‘rarely’ or ‘never’ use their home phone to make calls
– 65% of adults admit that landlines are a thing of the past

Authentic Cuban rum Havana Club is teaming up with legendary Soho restaurant Kettner’s to launch ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ – a journey through the story and production of Havana Club, Cuban cocktails and Cuban Music. This immersive experience will run for a limited period only – from the 10th – 13th September.

Spread over the entire second floor of the renowned London restaurant; this informative and fun adventure will allow rum enthusiasts and novices alike to enjoy and learn more about Havana Club. There will also be an opportunity to learn about how the rum is made and get a flavour for Cuban culture, along with a specially designed Cuban tasting menu, created by Kettner’s head chef Yosef Edri.

photoThe journey will start with a brief history on the origins of rum and a master class on how to make an authentic Cuban mojito. The next stage of the experience will delve into how Havana Club rum is produced and offer the chance to sample sugarcane, molasses and aguardiente; key elements illustrating the rum production process. ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ will then finish with a Havana Club rum tasting session, led by Meimi Sanchez, International and UK Brand ambassador for Havana Club. She will pair some of the brand’s most iconic rums, such as Havana Club Selección de Maestros, one of the higher styles of Cuban rum with a selection of chocolates.

If you want to win entries just tweet your Personal Havana Club Custom Cocktail and we will pick the best. Be as imaginative as possible.
