New season, new bottles, new menu
The first episode of season six sees us focusing on all things new (or newish).
Our pick of the new crop of products takes in Pod Pea Vodka from Manchester, and Ardray, a new whisky, blending the artistry of Japan with the traditions of Scotland.
It’s over to the historic American Bar to check out the first menu by its newest head bartender, Chelsie Bailey, and our book choice is relatively new – it’s Doctors & Distillers The Remarkable Medicinal History of Beer, Wine, Spirits and Cocktail by Camper English.
We also highlight another book in this episode with our very special guest, Ryan Chetiyawardana who tells us about the soon-to-be released At Home With Mr Lyan & Friends, a new version of one of our favourite cocktail books: Good Thinks To Drink with Mr Lyan & Friends – our pick for cocktail lovers everywhere.
