Cocktails on the catwalk at Himkok – new podcast!

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Plus Patrón El Alto Tequila, The Lost Explorer Salmiana Mezcal, Modern Classic Cocktails and a visit to the newly opened Dover Yard

Himkok in Oslo have just unleashed their most ambitious project yet – a catwalk collection inspired by the 13 cocktails on their new menu. But before we hear from head of research and development at Himkok, Paul Voza about that, we have this week’s bottles, bar and book recommendations

Our drinks reviews take in two products of the agave variety: the first is Patrón El Alto Tequila; the second, The Lost Explorer Salmiana Mezcal. On the bars front, we sample the cocktails and soak up the luxe but fabulously laid back vibes at recently opened Dover Yard, while our book choice is the excellent Modern Classic Cocktails – 60 Stories and Recipes from the New Golden Age in Drinks by Robert Simonson.

Then it’s over to Oslo where we hear from Paul Voza about the cocktail creativity at Himkok and the remarkable catwalk show that launched the new menu. The clothes designed by Eline Dragesund are one-offs but the drinks will be available for the entire year. Make it your mission to try them.
