Hayman Family Launch Charles Merser & Co. – London’s First Rum Blending House for Over 100 Years

merser

The Hayman family today announce the upcoming launch of Charles Merser & Co. – London’s first rum blending house for over one hundred years. Based from a four-story merchant’s house located just off the Strand and moments from the River Thames, the new brand will follow in the traditions of London’s late, great rum blending houses by sourcing, blending, marrying and bottling a range of aged Caribbean rums from the heart of the capital.

Explaining the motivation behind the new brand, James Hayman comments:
“For over one hundred years, the streets of London were home to a bustling network of merchant rum blending houses. The merchant’s skill lay not in distilling but rather in the sourcing, blending and secondary maturation of the rum. Our family was involved in the trade for some time – sourcing stock from West India Docks to create our own proprietary blends. We’re proud to play a role in bringing the lost craft of rum blending back to the city.”

The move marks a new phase for the Hayman family, who are best known for their eponymous range of gins.

Explaining the link between English Gin and London Rum, Brand Director Jonathan Gibson comments:
“Over recent years, people have come to understand the important role that gin has played in London’s social history but rum’s story remains untold. London was for a long time at the heart of the global trade in rum, with blending houses playing a vital role in creating the finished rums that were widely enjoyed in the 18th and 19th Centuries. With Merser’s we aim to explore that history, to bring back those lost traditions and to encourage a renaissance of interest in London rum.”

The project has been a major development – involving the creation of a London bonded warehouse for secondary cask maturation and the restoration of a 19th century merchant’s house from which the brand will prototype its blends, entertain trade and host consumer tours. The historically-informed Merser’s brand sets out to celebrate the layers of flavour that a traditional approach to rum blending can bring.

Explaining the method, James Hayman comments:
“We have taken great pains to make our London rums the same way they were made here over one hundred years ago. We source the best Caribbean rums we can find, we blend them to create balance, nuance and layers of flavour and then we marry them in cask – right here in London – for a period of months just as our predecessors did. We do not add sugar, flavours or colour. What you see is a natural product of distillation, careful blending and cask maturation – distilled in the Caribbean but very much made in London.”

The standout packaging has been carefully developed to tell a story about London’s historic connection to rum.

Explaining the design, Jonathan Gibson comments:
‘The pack is a celebration of London’s rum blending heritage. The dimpled texture of the bottle is a nod to the dappled surface of the River Thames, along which barges were once used to transport casks of rum to blending houses such as ours. The hound and post logo harks back to a time when the majority of Londoners were illiterate and would find their way to merchant houses by means of symbols. And the name itself is an old English occupational surname – literally meaning ‘merchant’ it is an allusion to the mercantile rum blending traditions that we are proud to bring back.”

Merser’s Double Barrel launches in the UK in October at an RRP of £38 with a listing in Waitrose and further blends to follow over the coming months. Merser’s blending house will be opened to trade and consumer guests from mid-October. The brand will be distributed in the UK by Symposium.

COYA Partners With Bacardi To Launch Bespoke Cocktail Menu

Coya Cocktails-7

COYA Mayfair, the modern Latin American restaurant and its award-winning bar team, led by John Toader, Assistant Bar Manager, have partnered with Bacardi’s Facundo Rum to introduce an exotic new drinks menu, celebrating the relaunch of their new terrace and the stunning gardens of Ecuador.

The menu launches at the end of November and the selection of cocktails have been created with the rich fauna of Ecuador in mind. The flavours centre around the nature of an Ecuadorian garden in which you can discover an array of tropical birds. Each drink is named after a bird and the menu details a fact that makes the bird and the cocktail unique.

Guests are offered the experience and a biology lesson at the same time in the menu. The presentation of the drinks is kept simple in order to focus on the ingredients, flavour and concept which is complimented by the foliage on the COYA terrace.

The first cocktail in the quartet is the Toco Toucan which was made with the tropics in mind and contains Facundo Neo rum, sweet pineapple, bitters, citrus, spicy pepper, vanilla, tea, milk and zingy ginger, encompassing a light and bitter long drink.

The next is the Capuchinibird which is a savory mix of Facundo Eximo, milky coconut, tonka and a special exotic sauce. A lighter choice is the Scarlet-Banded Barbet which is a herbal cocncoction containing Facundo Exquisito, Chartreuse, zesty lime, a cola reduction and finished with sesame.

For those wanting something extra special, the Waved Albartross is a delicious dark, aged rum drink with Facundo Paradiso, sugar cane and chocolate bitters.

Guests are also welcome to try the bespoke selection of Bacardi rums by themselves in order to get the full experience of the delicious spirits.

Iconic Shoreditch Bar Callooh Callay Gears Up To Launch New Haynes Manual-Inspired Menu

callooh

Hot on the heels of its 10th anniversary celebrations, Shoreditch favourite Callooh Callay will launch its annual menu update next month. Known for its award-winning creative menus which add a playful twist to nostalgic designs, Callooh’s 2019 menu reimagines the iconic vintage Haynes car manuals of the 1980s as a guide to building the world’s best cocktail bar.

Curated by Callooh Callay founder Richard Wynne and his bar team and sticking closely to the distinct Haynes manual layout and design; the new informative menu, entitled The Cocktail Bar Manual, opens with a contents page listing the 26 new cocktails, all of which have been inspired by nine different stages of developing a bar from scratch. Sections include “The Plan”, “The Location”, “The Team” and “Keeping a Clear Head”, which is entirely dedicated to alcohol-free cocktails.

Submissions from every member of the bar team reflect Callooh Callay’s journey, since Wynne opened the doors on Shoreditch’s Rivington Street during the financial crash of 2008. For example, listed under “The Plan”, Nan’s Orchard is a smooth blend of Apple Cider Brandy, El Gobernador Pisco, Noilly Prat, Ginger Cordial, Lemon, Apple Pie Syrup, Citrus, Ginger Ale, which pays homage to Wynne’s grandmother, who provided the initial nest egg to get Callooh off the ground.

Reflecting the demand for grown-up non-alcoholic options amongst Callooh’s clientele, the new menu also features a kombucha of the week, made in house, and stylish hangover free versions of classic tipples, including the Pina con Nada, a refreshing blend of coconut cream, pineapple lime and salt and the All Flora no Dora with ginger cordial, lime, fresh raspberries and ginger ale

Callooh’s tradition for playful presentation extends to “The Build” section. The Builders Breakfast, a rum based concoction laced with tea syrup, is served in a builders mug for individual portions or a sharing flask whilst Jabberwocky Milk, with Tanquerey gin, lemon, marshmallow syrup, egg white, cream and soda is served in a miniature paint tin.

For those wanting to learn more about their drink’s backstory, drinkers will be able to scroll through dedicated pages of the manual menu for each serve, whilst imbibers with a certain craving can flick to the index of ingredients to find the perfect drink for them.

A year in the making, Callooh Callay Founder Richard Wynne said of the new menu:

“We’ve created some really fun and interactive menus over the years, and I’m hugely grateful to all the work the team who have put in a massive effort to make the Haynes manual-inspired creative a reality. They were huge when I was a kid, and I love anything with a bit of nostalgic retro value.

We’ve really dug deep into our experiences over the last 10 years to bring it together, starting with the seed money my grandma generously gave me to start the venture, so the finished menu is one of the most personal to me.

I strongly believe that the most important aspect of any bar is the team, and I’m proud to say that our new menu includes at least one drink from every one of our current bar team. The result is a wonderfully varied offering reflecting their individual backgrounds and tastes – from kombucha to sherbert – and a top-notch selection of non-alcoholic cocktails too. We’re now excited to see what our customers think about the Haynes-inspired menu, and introducing an awesome line-up of new drinks at Callooh Callay…”

The Cocktail Bar Manual will be available Wednesday 10th April 2019 with a seasonal refresh set to launch later this year.

Oxley Gin Announces First UK On-Trade Competition In Search Of The Country’s Most Inventive Gimlet

DISHOOM17

OXLEY®, the unbelievably cold distilled gin, announces its inaugural cocktail competition open to the UK on-trade centred around one of the world’s most classic cocktails – the Gimlet. Accounts across Edinburgh, Manchester and London are being challenged to invent their unique twist on the Gimlet serve, a drink traditionally made with only two ingredients – lime cordial and gin. The use of sub-zero distillation in a quest to keep the botanicals in OXLEY gin faithful to nature, combined with using only fresh-frozen citrus, the Gimlet showcases this bright and flavourful gin – essential in controlling and balancing the essential cordial element. With the Gimlet’s current revival and dividing of opinions, almost as much as the martini, OXLEY gin will tour the three cities from February through May in search of the unexpected, inventive expression of this serve.

CORDIALLY INVITED
With many different takes on the Gimlet featuring across the UK’s top on-trade accounts – 12% of bars polled the serve in their top 10 cocktails* – from Mint Gun Club’s staple three versions, each prebatched and kept in the freezer and served in frozen liqueur glasses, to Scarfes Bar’s twist using a home-made cordial infused with zara lebu skin, lemongrass, shiso and kaffir lime leaves, OXLEY gin is inviting bartenders to experiment and create their own cordial that will complement the thirst for flavour and unmistakable taste of OXLEY gin. Each bartender will be gifted an OXLEY Cocktail Kit to support their own innovative interpretation of the Gimlet with the winner walking away with their own bespoke, co-branded fridge.

The winning recipe will be selected by Karine Tillard, Brand Ambassador for OXLEY gin, along with a special guest, who will visit the competing bars before crowning the most inventive bartender in each region.

Florent Demars, UK Brand Manager – OXLEY gin comments “Since the invention of OXLEY, we have continued to champion flavour and freezing nature in its tracks. We are excited to see how bartenders across the UK can create a truly adventurous take on the Gimlet, a cocktail that has been gaining popularity and momentum rising 26% in the last year alone as one of the world’s best-selling classic cocktails.”

Sager + Wilde And East London Liquor Company Teams Join Forces To Launch Independent Spirits Brand

thumbnail (2)

Three of London’s leading drinks innovators, Michael Sager and Marcis Dzelzainis (Sager + Wilde) and Alex Wolpert (East London Liquor Company), have joined forces to launch independent spirits brand, El Destilado. Exploring the spirits of Latin America, the first El Destilado collection launches in November 2018 with a lineup of thirteen agave and sugar cane distillates from Mexico.

El Destilado was born out of the team’s time spent travelling in Latin America and a shared desire to curate a collection of spirits that express the terroir of the unique places and producers they encountered. Working directly with small, independent producers, El Destilado presents a diverse range of spirits that express the distinctive space, history, time and environment in which they are created. Produced on a small scale, with batches ranging from 70 to 420 bottles, El Destilado’s range captures the ephemeral and unique nature of each spirit, offering an ever-evolving collection of limited edition distillates.

Design is central to El Destilado’s producer-led approach, with a focus on creating a clean, transparent vessel that brings provenance, people, places and processes to the fore. Created by El Destilado’s Creative Director, Charlie McKay, the design avoids stereotypical cultural iconography, presenting a minimal aesthetic that distinguishes it in the market, making each bottle a sought-after and striking addition to the bar.

The first collection features eleven agave and two sugar cane distillates from Mexico. The agave distillates all come from mezcaleros working outside the confines of Mexico’s Mezcal Regulatory Council, using ancestral techniques to create non-D.O. spirits that are pure expressions of ancient, artisanal methods. This inaugural El Destilado collection will be priced between £35 and £120 per 500ml bottle, dependent on the spirit. The first collection is available now through Speciality Drinks and will be listed on The Whisky Exchange from December 2018. The collection includes:
