This November, Dandelyan – crowned the ‘World’s Best Cocktail Bar’ – will be running the latest instalment of their World Botany Series. This involves welcoming bars from around the globe to combine different techniques and ingredients to create a unique menu for drinkers in London alongside like-minded and talented cocktail connoisseurs.
For their November series, Dandelyan will be collaborating with glamorous South Korean bar Charles H. from the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul to bring a snapshot of South Korea’s booming cocktail scene to London. Bartenders Lorenzo Antinori and Noah Kwong will be working with Dandelyan’s team to create a special multi-sensory menu featuring five Bombay Sapphire cocktails with a Far Eastern edge. This will include the ‘K Pop Colada’, a cocktail featuring Korean rice wine Magkolli specially flown over by the Charles H. team, combined with sweet potato powder and coconut cream.
This year’s World Botany Series kicked off in May with a Swedish collaboration from the brains behind restaurant, Faviken, who recently launched pop-up cocktail bar Svartklubbe. The end result was a Swedish-inspired menu mixed with some native ingredients growing in the region of Jämtland, such as rowanberries, meadowsweet, Attika (a Swedish vinegar) and woodruff. The series continued in July with an American injection from LA bar The Walker Inn to celebrate 4 July, and the final collaboration will be in January, when Dandelyan will team up with Native from Singapore to create an Asian-inspired menu.
Each collaboration will take place across four days, alongside ‘The Modern Life of Plants’ cocktail menu. Bookable 30-minute tasting experiences will also be available, complete with all the top tips from the professionals from techniques to the ingredients behind the menu.
