I have sought out vintage products as close to the originals used that I could find to give you a true taste of cocktail history, the ultimate experience for the discerning cocktail lover. VINT A G E COCK TA I L S HONEY BEE £275.00 This drink is a classic from the 1930s made with rum, honey and fresh lemon juice. The recipe is taken from The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks by David A. Embury, which called for Jamaican rum. For this drink the closest I could find is J Bally Martinique Rum 1929. WHITE LADY £350.00 Created by Harry Craddock legendary bartender from the Savoy Hotel, Harry took up residence at the Savoy in 1920 where he reigned until 1939, after being exiled by prohibition. Harry immortalised his creation in The Savoy Cocktail Book which he compiled in 1930. For this recipe I am using Gordon’s Gin from the 1930s and Cointreau from the late 1930s and fresh lemon juice. SIDE CAR £350.00 This drink was made famous at Harry’s New York Bar Paris during the First World War, served for an eccentric Captain who turned up in a chauffeur driven motorbike sidecar. In his 1922 book Harry credits the recipe to ‘MacGarry’ the popular bartender at Buck’s Club, London. For this recipe I am using Hedges and Butler 1914 Cognac and a Cointreau from the late 1930s and fresh lemon juice. BRANDY CRUSTA £425.00 The first published recipe for this cocktail appeared in 1862 in ‘How to Mix Drinks‘ by Professor Jerry Thomas, the esteemed father of Bartending. The original Crusta was created at New Orleans’ City Exchangein the heart of the French Quarter by Joseph Santini in 1850, the first time that citrus juice was introduced into the list of ingredients for a cocktail. For this recipe I am using Monnet Cognac 1858 and Dubb Orange Curaçao late 1860s and fresh lemon juice, the drink will be served as Jerry Thomas specified in a sugar crusted glass lined with pared lemon peel. GIN COCKTAIL £450.00 Another recipe from Jerry Thomas’ 1862 publication, This is one of the very original cocktails. In 1824 there is a published reference to a New York porter saying about his dead friend that he was “the kindest soul that ever poted a gin cocktail”. The Gin of choice at that time was Holland Gin. To recreate this recipe I am using Fogkink Amsterdam Gin from the late1800s, Dubb Orange Curaçao from the late 1860s, Angostura Bitters from 1915 and homemade gomme syrup. OLD FASHIONED £500.00 Although claimed as their own by the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky founded in 1881, there are even earlier published references, when the Chicago Tribune quoted a prominent bar-tender as saying ‘The old fashioned cocktails are still in vogue; cocktails made of loaf sugar and whisky... Rye Whiskey is called for more than Bourbon. The first recipe appears in a rare book entitled Bartender’s Manual by Theodore Proulx in 1888. To recreate this recipe I am using an old American preprohibition Whiskey, Angostura bitters from 1915 and a lump of white sugar. VINT AG E COCK TA I L S SINGAPORE SLING £750.00 The most commonly used recipe for a Singapore Sling bears little resemblance to the orginal Singapore Sling created by Ngiam Tong Boon, a bartender at the Raffles Hotel, Singapore in 1915. Originally intended as a woman’s drink, this long, exotic cocktail is now enjoyed by both sexes in many bars throughout the world. The original recipe of this legendary cocktail was a favourite of, among others, the famous writers Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad. To recreate that infamous classic we use New York Gin c1910, Peter F. Herring Kirsebær (the predecessor of the modern Cherry Herring) c1905, cointreau c1920, benedictine c1930, fresh orange, pineapple and lemon juice. BACARDI COCKTAIL £1250.00 This cocktail was discovered by the Americans in Cuba during prohibition, it quickly became central to the cocktail’s golden age. So much so that by 1936 the Bacardi Company went to court to protect their prestigious brand, since then this drink can only be made using Bacardi rum. The first published Bacardi Cocktail recipe appeared in Drinks by Jacques Straub in 1914. For this recipe I am using Bacardi from circa 1905 and Grenadine from the1930s, home-made gomme syrup and fresh lime juice. SANTA CRUZ RUM PUNCH £2,000.00 This drink is also listed within the pages of the Jerry Thomas’ 1862 Bartenders Guide. Thomas’ recipe states a large measure of Santa Cruz rum. As this rum can no longer be sourced we use a St Croix rum of similar age. Both rums orginate from neighbouring distilleries on the U.S. Virgin Islands. These rums are truely unique and extremely rare. St Croix Rum c1890, Jamaican Rum c1900, 3 dashes of lemon juice, an orange slice and powdered white sugar. SAZERAC £2,500.00 This American classic is a sublime sipping drink. Legend has it that its origins began in Peychauds Pharmacy, New Orleans where Peychaud himself, a young Creole apothecary, would serve a drink based on cognac mixed with his proprietary bitters to treat stomach aches and other illnesses, the brandy and bitters buzz caught on with Peychaud’s friends and then in the coffee houses. In 1853 the Sazerac Coffee House opened in a rough back street known as Exchange Alley. The Coffee House made the brandy cocktail a rage and the ingredient that gave it its name was the bar’s Cognac, exclusively imported from France, Sazerac de Forge et fils. Around 1870 the Cognac was replaced with Rye whiskey, probably due to the phylloxera epidemic that devastated the European vines and the production of Cognac, and a taste of Absinthe was added. For you I will reproduce the original cocktail and use a Sazerac de Forge et fils from 1805 simply made with Peychaud bitters and sugar, an experience only available to the privileged few. SALVATORE’S LEGACY £5,500.00 With this drink I wish to be written within the pages of history. In accordance to the Guinness Book of World Records, using some of the oldests bottles within my collection, I have created the oldest and most expensive cocktail ever produced. For this drink I use some of the world’s rarest spirits and liqueurs. 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, Dubb Orange Curaçao from late 1860s, 1770 Kummel Liqueur and 1915 Angostura Bitter.
