The Trading House London
Inspired by the East India Trading company the interiors/drinks and menu stand out as a little different to your average London bar and food place. Set in an old bank the grade 1 and 2 listed building with it grand ceilings and warm and inviting decor (including taxidermy wall ornaments) makes you feel like you have traveled back in time for a second. The drinks menu includes spice twisted cocktails with flavours such as tea, spices, and floral elements, (sounds weird, tastes incredible) and also includes a huge array of beers and ales. Part of our preview was to make and taste the cocktails on the menu. The guys who were teaching the cocktail master class were so nice, and really knew their stuff, giving us a detailed history into why free pouring is actually the much more efficient way of making a cocktail and how they are one of very few companies who are licensed to do so. As well as sharing some very snazzy shaking techniques in how to make a perfect cocktail. Sadly, my attempts weren't as snazzy as theirs but I managed to make a reasonably tasty 'Rose Cosmo' albeit slightly more potent that perhaps it should have been.
not sure what Dan is doing here but he looks cute ha.
