Christmas, EditorialCuban Kindness: From Cuba, with GLove

Reading Time: 3 mins

Posted on the 03 November 23

We know how it goes…it’s a brand new year and those 2024 resolutions are in full swing. Perhaps you’re dragging yourself to the gym, trying to cut down on that screen time or dusting off that pile of cookbooks. Some of you (the bravest among us) might even be preparing to tackle a wardrobe clear out.

Not sure what to do with the stack of gloves, scarves and hats that have somehow accumulated over time? What if we told you that you could turn your spare items of winter clothing into a free cocktail?

As we face one of the coldest months in the year, we’re all about spreading some Cuban kindness. We want your spare winter warmers to donate them to local charities chosen by our bars across the UK.

How do I join in?

From 3rd – 31st January 2024, donate your spare items of warm winter clothing to a Revolución de Cuba near you. We’ll exchange them for a Banana Manaña cocktail as our way of saying thank you.


Head to your local bar with your hats, gloves, or scarves and hand over to a member of our team. Then sit back and sip your cocktail.

Who am I helping?

We are donating all items to a local charity chosen by your nearest bar. Have a look at a couple of selected organisations below:

Revoluciòn de Cuba Manchester, The Mustard Tree

The Mustard Tree support people experiencing homelessness and create opportunities for them to help themselves through practical support, friendships and connections.

Visit their website to find out more and get involved: https://mustardtree.org.uk/

Make sure to ask the team at your local bar about the charity they’ve chosen and how your donation is helping the local community.

From Cuba with GLove & Discarded Spirits

We’re encouraging our guests to donate their unwanted winter garments instead of throwing them away, bolstering Discarded Spirit’s mission to reverse needless waste and joining them in their efforts to inspire environmental progress.


Our Banana Manaña cocktail includes their delicious Banana Peel rum, which is made from just that. Banana peel extract gives flavours of toffee and a fruity kick. No gloves needed here, it’s sunshine in a glass.
