We harbour an old love for WSWS. These guys get us. This month were combining forces with them to take over the underground bar. Resident gin master Jay Sebode, creator of the menu, gin teacher and cocktail slinger at WSWS was with us on Islay last month:
“The cocktails were inspired by our visit to Islay to meet the people who make The Botanist. To forage with them and discover the wild flavours that compose the gin allowed us to understand the unique character of The Botanist and the wild island it comes from, helping us to truly reflect this in our cocktails. Each of the drinks features one particular botanical that not only is flavoursome but also widely available in nature, even around London.”
The exclusive menu has been inspired by local and seasonal plants. Each cocktail focuses on one botanical, including nettle, sorrel and chamomile, which can unexpectedly be foraged for in London.
Cocktail fans will be immediately immersed in the transformed bar and encouraged to become a botanist themselves.
The Botanist takeover at Worship Street Whistling Shop runs from now until the end of September 2018 – Opening hours here.
