Tom Dixon Creates 7 Distinctive Cocktails for London Cocktail Week 2016
7 Classic Twists Served in His Signature Glassware
Perhaps one of the most anticipated events for Londoners is the London Cocktail Week, where art meets mixology and wonderful things happen to one’s taste buds. Of course we encourage responsible drinking, but we would like to take this moment and kindly urge you all to make your way down to London Cocktail Week and try out one of the special Tom Dixon cocktails.
Seven classic cocktails served in seven different Tom Dixon vessels will be launched each day for London Cocktail Week 2016. The award-winning mixologist Mr Lyan, from Mondrian Hotel’s Dandelyan bar, has modified seven classic cocktails by adding some exotic twists that best match the Tom Dixon brand and personality.
Constructed using rare spirits and ingredients he’s picked up along his many adventures around the world, Mr Lyan has teamed up with Tom Dixon in order to deliver a truly exquisite experience to the week—long event visitors.
Monday’s cocktail is Southside, served in the tall and tapered TANK beer glass. It’s perfect for sipping and savouring in the sun, with smooth notes of gin and liqueur opening out slowly with the brightness of citrus and mint.
Tuesday’s cocktail is Fizz, a wicked cool twist on a silver fizz, keeps the light freshness through the shape of the glass. The saga will continue throughout the week, with a new classic every day available exclusively at the Dandelyan bar in London’s Mondrian Hotel.
The glassware for this venture is particularly beautiful. TANK is made from mouth-blown clear glass, defined by simple shapes that were inspired by the rigour of science laboratory equipment. With crisply cut and polished edges and a sharply applied band of precious metallic copper detailing, they provide the perfect functionality for modern drinking.
PLUM is equally stunning, as a series of copper plate and blue glass barware that reworks cocktail culture and updates drinking traditions altogether. These glasses offer a sculptural functionality for both home and hospitality settings, all mouth-blown and hand-cut.
