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.

Some animals may nest in trees, others beneath rocks, but the lesser spotted bartender prefers to roost behind a well-stocked bar. Here we can observe the rare sight of that most peculiar creature, the Bartendus Bacchus, or Louis, as it keeps a careful watch for any approaching predators. Although the bartender has few natural predators, it must be ever vigilant if it hopes to maintain it's position behind the bar, a hotly contended location. Whilst there are many bars for the species to choose from, they will always flock to those with the widest selection of alcohol, and the classiest decor. One such bar is CGR Merchant & Co.(We fact checked for you. So you don't have to..
