The Cellar Bar: What's On?
JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 | GENIUS MONTH:
The Cellar Bar will be kicking off 2020 by dropping our fourth refreshed cocktail menu, this centred around the theme of genius.
Each drink has been specifically designed as a homage to some of the greatest inventors, writers, musicians, artists, and general outside-the-box thinkers, who blazed a trail in their respective trades and left an enduring mark on the world around us – from Marvin Gaye to Madame Cliquot, Jean-Michel Basquiat to Grand Master Flash.
Our big launch party is taking place on Thursday 23rd January, but we’ve prepared a whole series of genius-themed events for you to look forwards to over the next few weeks. Scroll on for the low-down..
First up will be our very own resident gin-thusiast, Jake Rogers who, through a guided Plymouth Gin tasting, will seek to prove that a large part of genius is the ability not only to create, but to stay ahead of the curve..
These guys were responsible for spark of inspiration which married chemistry and history together, and left us all with some beautiful bourbon to enjoy for years to come. If that isn’t genius, we’re not entirely sure what is..
Much-maligned in the past, rum developed a reputation of being a harsh mistress more suited to punchbowls than tasting glasses. Join us and Steven Carr to learn how the guys at Diplomatico changed this perception with no small measure of ingenuity.
With the help of our friends at Passione Vino, we’re celebrating the life of perhaps Tuscany’s most famous son, Leonardo Da Vinci, 500 years on from his death through a guided tasting of some of the finest vintages from the famous wine-producing region.
