The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 48



ByThe Cocktail Lovers


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.
