Today, we're eating cocktails
This week on the Shout About London Podcast, Smith and Sinclair invite you to: touch a sound and suck a scent.
Melanie was running a singles dating event in Dalston, having mixed success. After dropping some sweets in the party bags one night, everything changed.
Four years later, Smith and Sinclair, are leading the way in a brand new market they helped create.
See their products in John Lewis, Harvey Nichols or at their awesome pop-up event: The Flavour Gallery, in Hoxton Basement.
