East End whisky, West End style

There’s no particular rhyme or reason for what’s on our agenda this week, save for the fact that each item has either piqued our interest or seriously rocked our boat.

Product-wise we’re championing Sake Sling, a new ready-to-drink sake-based cocktail developed by the late Wayne Collins. But if you’re in the mood for something stronger, London Rye from the East London Liquor Co should definitely do the trick.

Our book choice is A Sense Of Place, a veritable treasure trove of beautiful prose and stunning photography zoning in on the lesser known delights of the whisky world – and because we know you so well now, we’re letting you in on one of our favourite lesser known bars, the truly delightful 45 Jermyn Street. 

Speaking of true delights, we’re thrilled to have Claridges Director of Bars Denis Broci guesting on the podcast this week. Tune in to hear what’s on the menu in the three bars he presides over and why they should definitely be on your radar.
