 Three gin cocktails (or G&Ts) for the price of one

Bois­dale of Bish­ops­gate has dis­cov­ered that the beau­ti­ful vault­ed cel­lars in Swede­land Court in which it oper­ates were built in the mid-sev­en­teenth cen­tu­ry pos­si­bly before the great fire of Lon­don in 1666 mak­ing it the old­est Lon­don build­ing with restau­rant premises.

The unex­pect­ed dis­cov­ery spurred gen­er­al man­ag­er Ines Jankows­ka and head mixol­o­gist Anna Zacharewicz to look into the types of drinks cus­tomers would have enjoyed pri­or and around 1731 when James Ash­ley, a 33-year-old whole­sale deal­er in cheese,” aban­doned his line of work to open The Lon­don Punch-House on the north side of Ludgate Hill and prompt­ly became the first British celebri­ty mixologist.

It quick­ly became appar­ent that gin was the go-to spir­it of the time usu­al­ly mixed with sug­ar, nut­meg and the juice or rinds of cit­rus and served in a form of punch or shrub.

The research result­ed in new delight­ful and deli­cious addi­tions to the Bois­dale cock­tail list — Gin Crus­ta, Lon­don Milk Punch, Maryle­bone Old Fash­ioned and City of Lon­don Dis­tillery Gin & Dou­ble Dutch ton­ic — all of which can be sam­pled until Mon­day 16th Sep­tem­ber 2019 (Mon­day to Fri­day 6pm – 8pm) at heav­i­ly dis­count­ed price by quot­ing: Is this the old­est restau­rant in Lon­don?”
