Welcome Aboard

Scarred wooden floors beneath your feet, the scent of oranges and spices in the air, fans spinning languidly above, creepers and vines trailing from the plunder laden ceiling; and row upon row of glittering vessels overflowing with delectable concoctions – an abundance of  spiced, infused, flavourful gin and rum.  Welcome aboard to C.G.R. Merchant & Co.

 

Anyone who has had the pleasure of being regaled with tales of action and adventure from wayward travellers can attest to the truth of the statement ‘travel inspires’. And right when he needed it most, inspiration struck in all its exotic glory for Justin McKenzie, owner and proprietor of C.G.R. Merchant & Co.

One of our newer additions to our classics menu here we have a jar filled with Toasted Coconut, Chocolate and Havana Club Especial. When this infusion originally came out last year it took the bar by storm with how amazing it tasted as an Old Fashioned. As one of our staffs favourite infusions this is definitely a must try!#toasted #coconut #chocolate #jar #infusions #havanaclub #rum#wellington #bar #cocktails #sony #camera#drinkstagram #drinkporn #mixology #thirsty
