Köln – Part I

This year prior to arriving in Berlin for BCB I made a short detour to Cologne, a city I was eager to visit after hearing so many good things about its bars. On my first night I visited two bars – Al Salam and Shepheard.

Miller’s 10th Anniversary

Celebrating 10 years of juniper-fueled fun, Martin Miller’s Gin will be releasing a very limited-edition high-proof gin next month. In order to choose the anniversary gin five poor souls had to sample five different gins to choose the best, and Jay was lucky enough to be one of them.

A night to remember

November 2nd, 2008

A night to remember

Fire juggling gymnasts, drag queens, a fire-breathing mechanical horse, can-can girls and a G&T swigging Jesus, the launch event for Beefeater 24 gin at Syon Park was quite a party. Thankfully I remembered to bring my camera along with me, or I think I’d have written it off as a gin-fueled hallucination.

The last stop in my tour of the finest bars of New York, B♭ is the new bar from the bartenders responsible for putting Angel’s Share on the map. Providing an interesting mixture of both modern and classic trends in the world of cocktails, and with a definite Eastern influence, B♭ made for a great end to my time in America.
