POPS HQ: A Sensational Summer

The summer sun is sticking around (we’re thrilled!) but that doesn’t stop us looking back on a superb season. With our refreshed look and logo, the start of the summer saw us launch our deliciously smooth sorbet tubs into the iconic Harrods.

June was full of celebrations with our 5th Birthday & World Gin Day when our Gordon’s Gin & Lime popsicles were enjoyed by brands, influencers & press across London.

Our latest collaboration with Soho House & Co brought the Eastern Standard (Vodka, Lime, Cucumber & Mint) ice popsicle poolside for members to enjoy.

For Father’s Day, we partnered with Orlebar Brown to serve our Espresso Martini at their outdoor screening of James Bond’s Goldfinger & Skyfall in Canary Wharf.
