Guinness on Wight at Keble College’s May Ball

Oxford, England

The sun came out, a rainbow appeared, and the Keble College revelers happily poured into the Wight Vodka tent during the Keble Ball.

“The Wight Tent was a massive success!” said Dan Guinness, one of the energetic leaders of this year’s Keble College Ball.  “As our 1,000+ guests arrived, we started everyone off with Wight Raspberry and Lemon Drops – ice cold Wight Vodka served with a fresh raspberry, a lemon and a sugar-rimmed shot glass. These went down tremendously, and looked great!”

Guinness continued, “The bar was set up as a Wight Wonderland – white decor with fairy lights, plenty of space for people to meet up and chat with their friends. One corner of the room was the bar itself, a semi-circular LED bar which served the delicious cocktails. The bartenders were awesome, serving up so many great drinks.  We kept the Wight ice cold all night.  One of the favourites was the Guava and Mango Wight martini; this was a total hit.”

Ritu Manocha, owner of the Wight Vodka brand, was glad to be part of this year’s May Ball in Oxford.  “Working with Dan and his team was fantastic.  The bartending team developed some fantastic cocktails and the party-goers certainly had a fantastic time.  So glad to be part of the Keble Ball.  I think we’re becoming a bit of a tradition in Oxford!”
