Bartender's Choice Set
The Everleigh Bottling Co.
‘What’ll you have?’
Much like a game of ‘Guess Who?’, Bartender’s Choice is a process we go through with our guests at The Everleigh to find just the right drink for you. Tell us what you like, or perhaps what you don’t like. Allow us to listen. Allow yourself to be surprised.
We’ve used the same elimination game for our newest bottled cocktail collection - you liked the citrus notes in the classic Martini from our Famous Four collection? Let us introduce you to a light and refreshing summertime variation, the Vesper. Does the bourbon Old Fashioned float your boat? Sample a standout Scotch variation with the Bobby Burns.
An extension of our Famous Four classic bottled cocktail range, the Bartender’s Choice collection is The Everleigh’s recommendation on what to have next - some of our absolute favourite sippers suited to the most discerning drinker.
The Bartender's Choice set includes four single-serve cocktails:
- Hanky Panky
- Bobby Burns
James Bond: I think I’ll call it a Vesper
Vesper Lynd: Because of the bitter aftertaste?
James Bond: No, because once you’ve tasted it, that’s all you want to drink.
A subtly sweet sipper, perfectly suited to a summer’s day. This dry Martini style is one of the only classics to showcase both gin and vodka side by side, each of which are duly complimented by the delicate citrus and bitter notes of wine-based aperitif Cocchi Americano.
Chill, pour into a frozen cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
Tanqueray gin, Ketel One vodka, Cocchi Americano & filtered water.
Standard drinks 1.8 | ALC: 26% | VOL. 90ml
As sassy as the name suggests, the Hanky Panky is set to seduce anyone in a love affair with the Martini or Negroni. The sweetness of Cocchi sweet vermouth is paired with a punchy aromatic bitterness from earthy Italian amaro, Fernet Branca. The result, a bold bittersweet bartender’s favourite.
Chill, pour into a frozen cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.
Tanqueray gin, Cocchi sweet vermouth, Fernet Branca & filtered water.
Standard drinks: 1.9 | 26% ALC | VOL. 92ml
Named after the culturally diverse borough of NYC, the Brooklyn is equally rich and enticing. Sister of the classic Manhattan, this drier variation combines dry vermouth instead of sweet with the rich sour cherry of Maraschino. The lasting impression is perfectly bittersweet thanks to French aperitif Amer Picon.
Chill, pour into a frozen cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Bulleit rye whiskey, Dolin dry vermouth, Maraschino, Amer Picon and filtered water.
Standard drinks: 2.0 | 29% ALC | VOL. 90ml
‘O thou, my muse! Guid auld Scotch drink!’
‘Scotch Drink’ by Robert Burns, 1785
Named after the romantic Scottish poet Robert Burns, this riff on the classic Scotch Manhattan is rich, robust and rustic, much like the man himself. A hint of peat is partnered with sweet ripe citrus from the sweet vermouth, and benedictine and bitters combine to give a herbaceous dry finish.
Chill, pour into a tumbler or rocks glass with ice and garnish with a lemon twist.
Johnny Walker Black Label Scotch whisky, Cocchi sweet vermouth, DOM Benedictine & filtered water.
