What’s that? Over there? Look there’s a big fat yellow thing in the sky in London!! OMG IT’S THE BLOODY SUN!
[Insert “lol look at me I’m such a comedian”/”no but really, how exciting is this!” emojis here].
No matter how much I love going away on holiday, nothing beats London in the sun. Everyone is cheerier (I mean, that’s not exactly a tough feat, but I’ll take the cheeriness where I can get it), the streets are buzzing, the parks are prettier than Blake Lively, the rooftops sassier than Beyonce, and the general atmosphere is just so damn dreamy.
One of my favourite things about Summer is having food and drinks outside. One of my favourite things about London is the incredible variety of food – and snazzy cocktails, obvs – from all of the different cultures (you can quite literally find any cuisine in London) to the different options (Posh restaurants, cute takeaways, pop ups, kiosks, food festivals) you name it, London nail’s it. Which is why when I found out that Taste of London (open now until Sunday 18th) was back again this year and my all time faves Peroni Nastro Azzurro Gluten free – remember when I went to Rome with them and basically spoke non-stop about beer and pasta for the next month? – are also going to be there, I was so blimmin happy!
I then followed this up with a call to all the girls that said something along the lines of “be free tomorrow because we’re going for gluten free beer and chill and chats. Ok thanks, bye”
As a coeliac of 8 years, until a couple of months back I had not touched beer in 8 years and man had I missed it. There’s something sociable about beer isn’t there? Pizza and a beer, burger and a beer… just being at a BBQ or in the park and being to grab an ice cold beer is something that I missed so much. If you’re gluten free/coeliac and are in a similar scenario, then you might just want to declare your love to me now – I mean, someone’s got to – because if you haven’t tried Peroni Gluten free, you are in for a major treat!
The Peroni Nastro Azzurro Gluten free – sassy ole name huh? – to me, is magical (and a slight mystery) because it tastes exactly the same as the original Peroni Nastro Azzurro. With the same delicate balance of bitterness and citrus aromatic notes just minus the gluten, you won’t even notice a difference in taste.
You so clever Peroni, you so clever!
So, Peroni are welcoming you all down to experience ‘an Italian Summer’ at the incredible Taste of London which is held in one of the most stunning parks in London, Regents Park. It finishes on Sunday evening so you still have 3 whole days to head down (if you’re reading this on friday) and I honestly couldn’t recommend it enough. As well as a gorgeous tent full of beautiful wisteria and flowers – if you’ve seen the House of Peroni’s before then you’ll know that they always nail life in general when it comes to decoration – Peroni also have the most incredible gluten free cocktails put together by the award winning master of mixology, Simone Caporale (I went to Rome with Simone and he is an absolute legend and of course, makes the best cocktails!). From frozen negroni’s to Peony bellini’s, grab your girlfriend/boyfriend/mum/[insert your own personal favourite beer chugging pal here] and head down because you will not be disappointed.
To conclude, because this is me and when I get excited, I ramble so it is 100% necessary to conclude this… you absolutely need to head down to Taste of London before it ends on Sunday (18th June) for some Peroni Nastro Azzurro Gluten free, some snazzy cocktails, gluten free nibbles, major interior crushing over the tent because OMG GOALS, a wander around Regent’s Park and just a really bloody lovely time in London.
If you can’t make it however, Peroni Nastro Azzurro is available nationwide so you can still get your hands on some. I am strongly advising that you do because it is so damn good!
