A Love Affair Rekindled – the Art of Patrón, London

5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) – Oh Patrón, where did my love affair with you begin and where have you been all this time? Wait, that would be too embarrassing going back to our youthful days. So let’s just focus on the event I attended when we ‘bumped into’ each other last week. And with the recent news of you making a new friend (Guillermo del Toro), how could I possibly stay away? …

Cold And Blac, A Delicious Coffee Liqueur With No Processed Sugar

Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Cold brew coffee is the drinking trend of the past couple of years, and with a plethora of cold brew coffee liqueurs hitting the market recently, it’s not always easy to tell the wheat from the chaff. Cold and Blac stands out from the crowd, in a number of ways. Named the most innovative coffee product of 2016 by Evening Standard and Spirits Business at launch as a …

ROKA Opens Amazing Summer Roof Terrace Pop-up in Collaboration with Suntory Whisky

4.5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) – To me, whisky drinkers generally fall into one of two camps – one being the Pete Doherty-esque party-goers who mix with coke (the drinking kind), and the other being the whisky purists, choosing to drink it neat or on-the-rocks. Even the cocktail enthusiast in me doesn’t readily conjure up images of whisky as anything else. Yet Suntory Chita Single Grain Whisky has proven that the right whisky can …

Jindea Single Estate Tea Gin

4.5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Gin and tea share a long and intertwined history. Indeed the idea of a tea-infused gin is nothing new. Jindea Single Estate Tea Gin is a bit special though. It takes first flush Darjeeling and places it right at the heart of the product. Indeed a quick glance at the side of the bottle shows that the Darjeeling is the second most prominent botanical after juniper berry. Combined with cardamon, citrus …

Josef Cocktail Bar, Sterngasse 1, 1010 Vienna, Austria

Excellent

(Drinking Trends) On a recent short stay in Vienna, I found myself with an evening to kill. Having never been to the Austrian capital before, I put a call out to my friends on social media for bar recommendations. Being blessed with a great bunch of well-travelled and better-watered pals, this is my default tactic when scoping drinking dens in a new town. And after a post-prandial Fernet or two, …

Dark Horse, 7A Kingsmead Square, Bath BA1 2AB

4.8 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Down a discrete stairway off a picturesque square in the idyllic city of Bath is not the first place you might think to look for a world class bar. But then this is just the first in a number of ways in which Dark Horse lives up to its name. This enchantingly seductive cocktail bar which opened just a couple of years ago has already earned itself a glowing …

Review – Cocktails In The City, London

(Drinking Trends) Cocktails In The City is always a highlight of my calendar. So I was delighted to be asked to be part of the judging panel for this years CITC. Housed this year in the imposing One Marylebone venue, Cocktails In The City played host to 28 bars from the UK and Europe. Tasked with sampling one cocktail from each bar, and joined by fellow judge Paul Bradley, I set …

Underwhelmed by Underpoured Drinks at Simmons Bar Fitzrovia

1.5 out of 5
Poor

(Drinking Trends) Conveniently located in central London, Simmons Bar Fitzrovia positions itself as a fun spot to get together after work and enjoy Happy Hour cocktails while you dance til the early hours. On my visit, it was a busy Saturday night and the place was certainly jumping, with a boisterous crowd inside, a few pre-booked tables, and a private party in the downstairs room. Part of a bar group …

Review – The Londesborough, 36 Barbauld Road, Stoke Newington, London N16 0SS

4 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Nestled on the corner of a Stoke Newington side street, the Londesborough isn’t exactly easy to find, but it’s certainly worth the shoe leather. This is a seriously handsome pub, brought up to date with a clever and sympathetic refurb. It somehow creates a cosy atmosphere that belies it’s high ceilings and Georgian heritage. The term gastropub gathers easy criticism, but this pub is in my opinion an exemplar of  the best …

Disrepute, 4 Kingly Court, London W1B 5PW

4.5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) I love a bar that tells a good story, so I was thrilled to find myself immersed in a demi-monde of glamour and misbehaviour at Disrepute, the latest high-flying addition to the Soho drinking scene. From the stylish decor, to the intricately evocative menu, the guest is invited into a world of scandal and infamy. Make an entrance but not a scene; descend gracefully into Disrepute. Experience what lies at …

Gin Advent Calendar Challenge Day Five: Celery, Cinnamon & Samphire

(Drinking Trends) New Years greeting, dear readers! Christmas has come and gone, but the Gin Advent Calendar keeps on giving. So, I must admit a defeat in not completing the Challenge by Christmas. However, I consider it a win, not a loss, to have some more deliciousness to look forward to. As I hit the road for the annual Christmas grand tour there was much more gin to be enjoyed …

Bar Swift, 12 Old Compton Street, London, W1D 4TQ 🗺

5 out of 5
Excellent

(Drinking Trends) Bar Swift has me in a quandary. Not being the gushiest of reviewers, I find myself stretching for the sort of stratospheric superlatives that flit about beyond my everyday, earthbound vernacular. How to express a level of admiration normally the preserve of love letters? When cataloguing all the ways in which Bar Swift gets their offering spot-on, I have to check myself from drifting into a Sonnet 43 mind …

The Gin Advent Calendar Challenge, DayFour: Wisconsin, California, and The Sloe Bomb

(Drinking Trends) As Christmas nears, and the Gin Advent Calendar Challenge dashes through the snow, we are maintaining our three-gin-a-day rate. And what a collection we have today! On the Seventh Day Of Advent, My Gin Calendar Gave to Me… Death’s Door Gin 47%abv The bravery of this gin is outstanding. Three botanicals only, so there’s no hiding here for the distiller. Everything has to be top-notch. If your 15+ botanical gins …

(Drinking Trends) Advent Calendars have gotten something of an upgrade over the past few years. While the delights of stale chocolates can wane over the years, there are now a plethora of grown-up advent calendar options. And one of the finest providers of these new boxes of wonderment is Drinks By The Dram. They have a veritable cornucopia of spirit calendars to delight the senses. With over a dozen Whisky calendars, …
