This building has been keeping people refreshed since 1856. In its everlasting pursuit to serving drinks, this indestructible piece of architecture survived two bombings in the Blitz in WWII. Two aspiring publicans have now bought the premises and are closing it for a short while before reopening it as the Spit and Sawdust. With a nod to the past and a look to the future, Spit and Sawdust will bring back this cornerstone of the community with a new lease of life.

SGL: £5.75 DBL: £8.25


Death’s Door - 47%, USA.

Inspired by the treacherous stretch of water between Washington Island and the Door County peninsula that bears the name ‘Death’s Door Passage’. This gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. In fact, you can taste all three, loaded juniper berries up front, spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds, and a soft, cooling finish from the fennel. Soft enough to drink over ice.
