The History of the Empress's New Groove
This beautiful creation is from the multi award winning Danny Laycock in the UK. He was the 2019 Monin Bar Barista Champion and the 2020 Uk National Bloody Mary Champion. He now looks after the bar programme at Manahatta Bar.
This twist on a white lady brings out the Grapefruit and Rose petal notes of the Empress 1908 Gin and has a striking new Indigo look created by the Butterfly Pea Flower infusion. Inspired by the world-famous Fairmont Empress Hotel in British Colombia, Canada.
