Jack Daniel’s and Super Lyan Release A ‘How-To’ Guide on Kegged Cocktails With Nitro Legacy Handbook

201828a36b076509c2fa40e2f15686e764d4

Forever at the forefront of trends, the team at Super Lyan led by Ryan Chetiyawardana, started to explore kegged cocktails many years ago. Fast forward five years and meet the Tennessee Nitro Martini – one of the bar’s signature drinks – created with Jack Daniel’s and the first espresso martini in the world to be served on tap. Following the success of their subsequent, ground-breaking Tennessee Nitro Tours in 2018 and the Tennessee Calling competitions, inspired by the mentorship of Jasper ‘Jack’ Daniel by Dan Call and
Master Distiller Nearest Green, Jack Daniel’s and Super Lyan have reunited to create a kegged cocktail manual to share their knowledge used to create the iconic, super consistent Tennessee Nitro Martini serve.

KEG-AS-CRAFT
The cocktail on draft doesn’t have to compromise on quality as long as it’s done properly. Robin Honhold’s Tennessee Nitro Martini combined Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
with a homemade cola syrup and Sandows Cold Brew Coffee, before being pulled through a nitrous keg system for a soft, effervescent texture reminiscent of Guinness. Served in a coupe and finished with a spritz of bergamot, the result is a creamy, complex cocktail that can be served ‘at break-neck speed’. The use of this pioneering technology means that, as well as a high quality, consistent serve; the resulting cocktail is sustainable and waste-free.

STEP-BY-STEP
The Nitro Legacy Handbook has been exclusively created for bartenders across the UK who want to install their own cocktail taps – giving their customers a new experience whilst delivering consistently great cocktails quickly. This 20-page manual has been designed to demystify the skills needed and educate bartenders on the steps required to design and install the system, as well as the process of producing prebatched kegged recipes across three main categories – straight carbonation, fluffy, velvety nitrogen and non-fizzy drinks – all determined by your choice of gas, pressure and serving nozzle.

EDUCATION AND MENTORSHIP
Frank McGivern, UK Advocacy Manager at Brown Forman comments “It has been incredible to experience the reaction to the Tennessse Nitro Martini via our UK tour over the last year and we look forward to continuing to support the on-trade community through mentorship and education with this one of a kind manual. Super Lyan’s commitment to innovation, consistency and quality has made this a natural partnership for Jack Daniel’s and we are excited to share our knowledge of kegged cocktails with UK bartenders.”

Ryan Chetiyawardana, founder of Super Lyan says “Consistency and quality are two of the core principles that Super Lyan was founded upon, and we are passionate about sharing the processes and knowledge we have refined with Jack Daniel’s through the Nitro Legacy Handbook.”

Demonstrating the mentorship and education that Jack Daniel’s has continued to pioneer, the Nitro Legacy Handbook will provide guidance to those who want to install a tap in their own venues and leverage the kegged trend to deliver consistent, quality cocktails to their guests. A limited run of hard copies will be available, as well as a digital edition which will be hosted online for download. The Tennessee Nitro Martini tour will continue in 2019 with European dates confirmed from March.

Super Lyan And Jack Daniel’s Launch Tennessee Nitro Tours

This spring and summer London-based cocktail bar Super Lyan will be visiting cities across the UK with Jack Daniel’s Whiskey for the Tennessee Nitro Tours. In honour of Super Lyan’s innovative cocktail the Tennessee Nitro Martini, which was the first of its kind when it launched, the team will be collaborating with local, like-minded bars. For one night only at each stop, Super Lyan will be behind the bar allowing cocktail
fans across the UK to sample the Tennessee Nitro Martini as part of a special Jack Daniel’s cocktail menu. Kicking off in Manchester on 20th March at Peggy’s, Super Lyan will then go on to visit Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Belfast and do a bar takeover in its home city of London.

Super Lyan is the third venue from internationally renowned and multi-award winning bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan. A basement bar in Hoxton, it takes seemingly familiar classic cocktails and spruces them up with a touch of Lyan magic, with sustainability a key focus.

The Tennessee Nitro Martini is one of the bar’s signature drinks, and takes the espresso martini to the next level. It combines Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey with a homemade cola syrup and Sandows Cold Brew Coffee, which is then pulled through a nitrous keg system for a soft, effervescent texture reminiscent of Guinness. Served in a coupe and finished with a spritz of bergamot, the result is a creamy, complex cocktail that can be served extra quick. The first cocktail of its kind to use such technology, it also means the cocktail can be kegged making it sustainable, and was at the forefront of the eco-friendly cocktail trend.

In each city Super Lyan will be partnering with a bar which took part in last year’s Tennessee Calling programme, and will be working with the local team to develop a menu for the evening. Alongside the Tennessee Nitro Martini there will also be cocktails such as the Chattanooga Cooler and a special serve from the host bar. The line-up currently includes:

March – Peggy’s Bar in Manchester
April – Bramble in Edinburgh
May – Hedonist Project in Leeds
June – Filter & Fox in Liverpool
July – Callooh Callay in London
Belfast –to be announced soon…
