This was once the stage used by the tail-coated, bow-tied players of the Savoy Havana Band and Savoy Orpheans. Since the birth of the Savoy in 1889, this grand hotel has been synonymous with the art of mixing drinks. A pioneer of the sophisticated drinking scene in London, the bars here have popularized and created some of the most famous classics ever known, and have seen the rise of a new generation of educated drinker. This is the Beaufort Barâ€™s contribution to this most magical of times; where old and new meet to dance together in gracious harmony, evoking the spirit of by-gone glamorous ages past, whilst embracing and bringing together joyous new marriages of flavour and balance.

Spiritous Liquors The technique of distillation dates back as far as 3000BC, when the Chinese used this technique to create liquids used for wine and medicine. This then slowly spread across the Asian continent through India, Egypt and then on to Greece and Italy. By the sixth Century AD, the Arab army that was invading Europe released the technique of distillation, and the monks and alchemists of the time began perfecting and refining both the technique and the equipment used to distil. In Eastern Europe, the first vodka distillery was documented in 1174, and in 1250, Arnaud de Villeneuve was the first to distil wines in France. He called this new liquid ‘Eau de Vie’ or water of life, due to his belief that it prolonged life and enhanced health. The word of this new technique slowly spread, and by the 15th and 16th Century countries across Europe were producing their own style of fiery spirit; the Dutch made Genever (which later became gin), the Scottish and Irish made Whisky, and the French made Brandies. Even in Mexico, where the Spanish began to settle in the 1500’s they began to distil Tequila using the locally grown agave plant. The first American Whiskies appeared in the second half of the 18th Century, when British and European settlers moved shore and began distilling using the locally available grain. The following is our selection of these most joyous elixirs and potable potions.
