Big time hospitality with Anna Sebastian

Boy, do we have some good stuff for you. In this episode we bring you two delicious products: an Eau de Vie from Capreolus Distillery in the Cotswolds and Old Duff Genever, from an Irishman based in New York.

Our library pick is a must-read for hosts at every level – André Darlington's fabulous 'Bar Menu – 100+ drinking food recipes for cocktail hours at home', a brand new book which does exactly what it says on the tin.

From New Orleans, it's all about the delights of the stunning Chandelier Bar at the Four Seasons hotel, and for a hotel closer to home, we speak to this week's guest, Anna Sebastian. Tune in to hear what she's done to breathe new life into the historic American Bar and its sassy younger sister, the Beaufort Bar and hear her thoughts on what you can do to bring some five-star hospitality into your own home.

What we're mixing:

White Negroni

30ml gin

30ml Lillet Blanc

30ml Suze

Lemon zest to garnish


Fill a Rocks glass with ice and stir ingredients over ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
