“Here’s to alcohol, the rose-coloured glasses of life,” wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald in The Beautiful and Damned. We couldn’t agree more – gin, sake or cider, the choice is yours…


Rosewood London’s Holborn Dining Room recently launched its new gin bar, which boasts over 400 premium brands of the eternally-popular spirit, making it the largest collection on offer in London.

Behind the copper-topped bar of the brasserie-style restaurant (the shrimp burger on a brioche bun is divine, FYI), rows of shelves harbour the impressive collection of bottles, ranging from well-known, high-street staples to smaller-batch counterparts such as the Italy-inspired VII Hills (named after Rome’s undulating landscape) that names artichoke as one of the quirkier botanicals used, and Zymurgorium, Manchester’s first original gin, made sweeter than most due to the use of honey-based vodka in its production. Pair your chosen gin with one of more than 25 varieties of tonic water, and finish with a garnish suiting the flavour profile: from tried-and-tested peels of citrus fruit to more obscure peppercorns, cinnamon sticks and chillies.
