Goodbye Summer tipples. Hello Winter warmers…
We have exciting things ahead, not only is our Summer menu being pushed out the back door, and our Autumn menu being welcomed, but our drinks list change is also beckoning.
Ins and outs of drinks on the list is often kept quite under wraps, but someone, who knows someone, who helps with the new drinks list, may have let the cat out of the bag and let us into a little secret. We bring you some new drinks you can expect, come November.
Blackberries really are one of our favourite British fruits, and so to hear that they’ll be featuring in not one, but two new cocktails on the list, really did make for some happy bartenders. Goodbye English Garden and The Great Chase, and hello Hendrick’s Bramble and Chase’s Blackberry Crush!
We’re also saying farewell to Chase Marmalade and introducing a Whisky Mac onto the list. Using Monkey Shoulder Whisky, an easy-drinking blend of three single malts, it’s smooth, sweet and very easy to drink. Paired with Stone’s Ginger Wine & apple juice, this is a warm yet refreshing new addition to the list.
Negroni is also making a comeback! Strong and bitter, with Beefeater, Campari and Vermouth, it’s the perfect aperitif. The aperitivo moment is taking London by storm, and the ritual of a pre-dinner drink is definitely a trend we’re keen to jump on board with. Join us.
How do you like your bourbon? Neat or mixed in an Old Fashioned? Either way, we’re bringing three new American whiskeys to our Winter list, and what a choice we’ve been given! Hudson Baby Bourbon is a small batch whiskey, and was the first legal spirit to be produced in New York since prohibition! Full of caramel and vanilla notes, this really is an outstanding addition. Next up, Maker’s Mark. A rising star, also of exceptional quality. Handmade, using red winter wheat rather than rye, giving a noticeable, pleasant difference in comparison to many other premium bourbons. And finally, Basil Hayden. A craft bourbon like no other. Clean and light-bodied, with notes of honey, pepper and spice. Truly, easy drinking.
There’s also new gins, or so we heard. But we can’t give everything away…
