For this 2021-2022 menu, bar manager Rory Shepherd and his team pair up with 10 French farmers specialized in the farming of 10 ingredients, staple produces given the “bleu, blanc, rouge” label and that have been used as a base for the 10 new cocktails on the list. For instance, it features yellow beetroot from Orne, crème fraiche from Isigny in Calvados, red kiwi from Lot-et-Garonne and even Île-de-France tomatoes.

The Walnut cocktail is a genuine heart-stopper, based on walnuts from Marie-Lise & Sabine Matras, in Drôme. In addition to walnut syrup, Rory has come up with Whiskey scotch, Baldoria Dry Rosso and Spumante Rosso to deliver a perfectly balanced and spot-on cocktail.
