The Dakin Van will be positioned by the Vintage Fairground each afternoon of the festival, where they will be serving mini samples of their Dakinez and Manchester Bee cocktails as well as the classicTom & Tonic G&T. Thomas Dakin will also be hosting cocktail masterclass sessions at the Fever Tree Bar.

The Good Life Experience, taking place from 16-18 September at Hawarden Estate in Flintshire, focuses on culture, food, music and the great outdoors. A ‘festival with a difference" - it aims to celebrate all things which make life "richer, more rewarding and better fun".

Other brands activating at the festival include Black Cow vodka, which will be hosting a pop-up Black Cow Saloon honky tonk to bring a taste of the Wild West. Vodka drinks at the saloon will include two Black Cow classics – the Dorset Donkey, a local twist on a Moscow Mule and the Hard Sarsaparilla, with a bittersweet, long and refreshing taste. Two saloon specials will also be available, the Gold Fashioned, a creation featuring vodka, salted caramel and Amaro Tosolini and the Western Milk Punch, a sharing cocktail served in a flaming punch bowl.

The saloon will also feature live music with saloon house bluegrass band The Flats and Sharps, country funk from Dorset's The Gunville Flats, cajun from Wales' own Flatville Aces and a host of guest players and DJ’s spinning vintage vinyl.

At this year's Wildnerness festival, San Pellegrino served cocktails with an Italian vibe with its aperitivo hour. NME and Eskimo Dance meanwhile have partnered to host a two-day festival at new venue Boxpark Croydon.
