Inspired by London Fashion Week, the Whisky Bar of the Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments presents a custom menu of limited edition cocktails, playfully dubbed “The Catwalk Collection.”  The Citrus Catwalk is a nod to up and coming fashion talents, blending Hendricks gin with Grand Marnier, Peach Schnapps, lime juice, and simple syrup for a citrusy kick.  Those who prefer tradition will like the Tailored, a blend of Gent Jack, lime juice, Chambord and strawberry jam for a bold and floral flavour.
