Artesian at The Langham to launch new minimalist cocktail menu 

Artesian, the iconic bar within The Langham hotel in London, has announced it will offer a new menu, consisting of cocktails made from solely two ingredients.

In a project spanning the last eight months, The Langham’s award-winning bartenders have collaborated to create a refined list of 22 cocktails.

Inspired by the mantra “less is more,” each cocktail will combine only two elements, with carefully selected spirits paired with just one other key flavour.

A number of components are made in-house, using rare and unique ingredients from across the globe.

The cocktails will showcase the bar team’s technical skills in finding a harmony between unconventional pairings such as Perrier Jouët Grand Brut and cream; Star of Bombay Gin and golden beetroot; Thai Basil Ketel One Vodka and melon liqueur; and St Germain Elderflower Liqueur and red carrot.

Based on a design by artist John Edmark that explores the concept of perception and dimensions, the physical cocktail menu will comprise of a bespoke wooden mechanism which uses motion to echo the playful and interactive aspects of the cocktails on offer.

The bar is led by manager Anna Sebastian, nicknamed the ‘Queen of Hospitality’ by Cocktail Lovers 2018, and head bartender Remy Savage, who was named ‘Europe’s Best Mixologist’ by Mixology Bar Awards 2018.  Both joining The Langham in November 2017, the pair have collaborated in creating two previous menus for the bar.

Designed by David Collins Studio, the bar’s décor is in homage to the hotel’s Victorian heritage and the age of exploration, with high ceilings and ornate chandeliers.

Providing a high-end drinking experience, Artesian’s focus is on combining five-star service and well-balanced, artistic cocktails.

The new menu will be available from 23 April.
