Raising the Spirits: An Evening of Tarot & Absinthe at The Last Tuesday Society
Image Source- Devil’s Botany
It's time to get the party started... literally. You can grab a glass of the green stuff at the absinthe parlor and curiosity museum, The Last Tuesday Society. Devil's Botany, London's first absinthe distillery, is responsible for this night of botanically-charged aperitifs, as well as the opportunity to get a personal one-on-one tarot reading. A night of magical wonders is in store.
You must definitely join Devil's Botany, London's first Absinthe Distillery, at The Last Tuesday Society for a glass of Absinthe Regalis and a Tarot reading if you want to enjoy Halloween. Individual tarot readings will last approximately 15 minutes, and the ticket price includes a glass of Devil's Botany Absinthe Regalis.
The Devil's Botany Absinthe Regalis, produced by London's first absinthe distillery, was inspired by a unique elixir uncovered in the recipe books of London's 18th-century apothecaries. Classic but magically exotic, Absinthe Regalis' sacred trinity of grand wormwood, green anise, and sweet fennel is brightened by warming spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom—all once widely sought after signs of luxury. The resulting distillate is then organically colored to obtain its emerald green hue using a novel botanical blend that includes white dead nettle and milk thistle, both of which can be found growing wild across London.
