With a spectrum of inspiration ranging from the original spark that started it all – the coastal shipping routes of the Spice Trade – to fresh imaginings inspired by the scent of spring in the air, to the nostalgia of summers’ past, to the joyful reminiscing of the writings of Roald Dahl.
And with a broad range of technical methods being applied, such as fat washing – think lamb and rosemary infused rum, toasting fruit to extract the sugars, caramelisation, clarification and the creation of shrubs and fruit compotes. There is always something fresh, imaginative and delicious on offer.
You can sample the array of curious concoctions in all their naked glory, or let the friendly bartenders flex their creativity and construct a custom made cocktail, just for you.
There’s nostalgia in the air at C.G.R. Merchant & Co, a longing for those simpler days gone by. When you got home from school, ditched your bag, grabbed a sneaky chocolate biscuit and parked up on the couch for a cartoon-a-thon.
Yes 90’s kids we’re looking at you. Come and kick back with your favourite cartoon characters – in liquid form. Just as exciting as before, but much tastier! Your old pal Garfield is lazing around, while the Power Puff Girls kick some butt. And Dexter gets his mad scientist on, a little like the team behind the bar – with their weird and wonderful creations – you won’t know which one to taste first, but whichever one you go for, you won’t be disappointed.
And, there might even be some chocolate biscuits rolling around somewhere…
