Luxury vodka brand Absolut Elyx has teamed up with chef Anna Barnett for a supper club event next Tuesday (22 March) to mark World Water Day.

For £60 a ticket, guests can enjoy a four-course meal at Barnett’s home in Hackney, a converted pub, with all proceeds going to charity Water for People. 

Absolut Elyx and Water for People are on a five-year mission to give 100,000 people access to clean water worldwide. For every bottle of vodka sold at the event Water for People will provide one week’s worth of water (140 litres) to someone in need. Every ticket sold will give a family three month’s worth of water. 

Guests can expect a menu comprising sustainable produce sourced from local producers, with dishes to include pork and beef meatballs and a lemon and thyme tart.

Each course will be paired with an Absolut Elyx cocktail created by mixologist Rico Dynan. Designer Henry Holland has put together a playlist for the event.

Adam Boita, head of marketing at Absolut Elyx, said: "We’re [here] to ensure we don’t just fill our own glasses, but help fill the glasses of those in need with the most important drink in the world. It’s not enough just to made with integrity, we have to act with integrity as well. Creatives like Anna Barnett share our values and make them the perfect partner to highlight our partnership with Water for People."

Barnett added: "I’d previously heard about the great work Absolut Elyx and Water for People were carrying out so it’s a pleasure to be involved in this extremely worthwhile cause.

"To play a direct part in fundraising to provide essential safe water to so many families is extremely exciting and we’re hopeful that we’ll be able to raise a huge amount of awareness around the campaign at the same time."

Absolut unveiled its new, limited-edition bottles at an Electrik London event in the capital last November.
