It's Arrived!

The first bottles of the mature, bigger brother of the '69' House Cognac have arrived to the bar with no name! Created exclusively for the bar by Gilles Merlet in conjunction with Tony, the blend builds on the house style, with a greater richness and weight lent by the extra ageing- with the eau de vie spending a minimum of 6 years in French Oak.

With hints of toffee popcorn, apricots and clove- building on the house style characteristic of tinned peaches and honeyed almond- and with a longer finish dotted with spice and orchard fruits. Rather exceptional...

Traveling Manhattan

Two regular guests to the bar, Matthew and Sinead, recently went on their holidays to Cyprus, and with two week's absence from the intimate surroundings of 69 Colebrooke Row, they were gifted a serving of our c.8 month old Vintage Manhattan to accompany them. With instructions on its preparation enclosed, they undertook a welcomed sip of familiarity overlooking the Mediterranean. Cheers!

The Elegante blends fresh lemon, vodka, sugar and Prosecco with lemon sorbet. Light, refreshing and summery, it captures the fresh sherbety taste of the sorbet, and combines it with the clean flavours of the prosecco. Perfect to cool down with in the heat...
