Forget about your bog-standard gin in a tin or any old can of fizz – take your summer park picnicking to the next level with this selection of tasty, London-made tinnies. Have your pick of the pops or go for an alcoholic tipple with a bit of edge. These London-based drink producers – from breweries to soda makers – are canning it in style. So grab a mocha to go, surreptitiously sip on an English sparkling wine or select a limited-edition, summer beer special. These options are bringing the canned heat.
