Last weekend Magners Forbidden Flavours transported saints and sinners to an under-wraps location to reveal an evening laden with hedonistic temptation. For one evening only, Ollie’s in
Belfast was transformed into a wry tribute to the Seven Deadly Sins as #MagnersForbidden challenged guests, who won tickets via social media, to experience seven zones themed around Pride, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth and Greed.
‘Pride’ zone featured a clever mirror which gave a whole new look to selfies; ‘Envy’ offered the chance to win a desirable VIP night for four at Ollie’s; ‘Wrath’ was a high striker challenge; ‘Lust’ was portrayed by sultry dancers; ‘Sloth’ was a cool chill out area and ‘Greed’ was a fun cash grab cube with the chance to earn a BOSE Soundlink Bluetooth speaker.
Throughout the night the ‘Gluttony’ zone provided tempting Magners Forbidden Flavours cocktails: Lusty Lemon Fizz – Gin and Apple Juice topped with Magners Cloudy Lemon, and Sinful Strawberry Sour – Vodka, Mango, Lemon & Lime Sours, topped with Magners Strawberry & Lime.
Adding to the atmosphere, urban artist Visual Waste created a seven deadly sins installation live on the night. Revellers brought the Magners Forbidden Tree to life by inscribing their guilty sins and secret vices on fruit-shaped cards which they then attached to the branches for all to read.
