The 2018 Merchant House of Bow Lane Drinks list follows hard on the footsteps of the 2017 Imbibe Drinks List of the Year Award Winner, so there was real pressure to deliver something even better. Entitled 'Icons of Empire' the new drinks list features drinks recipe's built using ingredients relating to the lives of celebrated movers and shakers through history. These icons of empire have been illustrated as the face of each drink, using the four dot colour palette that identifies the drinks flavour profile. The illustrations also include patterns and textures inspired by traditional bank note artwork. This reflects the mercantile history of the bar, the area and of the influence of the characters portrayed.
All of these illustrations are now available to purchase as open edition signed and embossed print, available in either A2 or A3 size from my new online store.
Of course the best way to experience the Merchant House drinks list is by visiting the bar (13 Well Court, EC4M 9DN), where copies are available for purchase over the counter. Alternatively if you're keen to own one you can order any of the entire back catalogue again from my new store.
