A rotating cocktail series
We're pleased to introduce you to Mavericks - a rotating guest bartender series.
Each season, we invite a notable bar talent to create a full cocktail menu that will be served for three months. Expect highly creative libations and menu themes: anything goes. Our ambition is to provide a place for high-profile cocktail industry “Mavericks” to play, experiment and explore their ideas.
This Summer, we're excited to be conspiring with the ever-talented Andrew Calisterio, whose magic menu will take everyone on the ultimate, boozy, family road trip - inspiring us all to taste our way across the USA (with some secret adventures to be had along the way).
Lord George will donate 50¢ of every Mavericks cocktail sold to the talent's charity of choice. In this case, Andrew has chosen St Jude Children's Research Hospital.
