Little’s 50th Birthday Party
Established in 1966, Little’s achieved 50 years of operation in 2016. A number of events were planned across Scotland and London to celebrate this milestone, with the largest being held on the top floor of Edinburgh’s wonderful SKYbar. With great views of Edinburgh Castle and the city, it was the perfect location to entertain some of our longest standing customers.
The night kicked off with our guests being treated to a selection of delicious canapes and a glass or two of our bespoke cocktail. ‘Little’s Gin Fizz’ was produced especially for our 50th celebrations, and included our very own bespoke gin with Raspberry liqueur – produced for us by the masters of botanical spirits at Edinburgh Gin. Representatives from Edinburgh Gin joined us for the evening, treating our guests to some weird and wonderful modern takes on the classic spirit.
Heather Matthews, the MD of Little’s and daughter of co-founder George Willis, talked us through the many changes to the company over the 50 years. With stories of (now vintage) vehicles used in the past, developments in technology, and how Little’s have adapted to ever changing requirements of the customer, Heather gave our guests an insight into life ‘behind the scenes’ of the company.
We have really enjoyed celebrating our 50th anniversary and look forward to the next milestone.
