Their cocktails are a reinterpretation of those primitive mixtures when, in 1800, rum came from the Caribbean, whisky was produced in Scotland and Ireland and the preparation of gin had relocated from Holland to England.

 

The team at the bar is composed by the creators and talented mixologists from Maximal Concepts who won the Tatler’s Best Cocktail 2013 award in Hong Kong, at Blue Butcher. To make the experience more authentic, at Stockton, in addition to ageing their own distillates in leather canteens, they offer a menu with the best brands in the World, amongst them, The London Nº1.

This small establishment will surprise you as soon as you set foot inside it.

You wouldn’t imagine finding anything similar in the little town of Cesana Brianza, to the North of Milan, close to the border with Switzerland.
