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.

What we’re mixing:
The Mr G A De V
40ml Martell VS Cognac
20ml freshly brewed filter coffee
20ml sugar syrup (2:1)
Chocolate garnish (at least 70% cocoa)
Shake the Martell VS, coffee and sugar syrup over ice and strain into a chilled glass. Sprinkle liberally with very finely grated chocolate.
The recipe was originally created by The Cocktail Lovers for an event we hosted to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Martell.
