Description

Playing host to some of London’s most influential faces in fashion and art, The Donovan Bar boasts an elite list of signature cocktails, wines and spirits. Salvatore Calabrese, one of the world’s leading bartenders and a former President of the United Kingdom Bartender’s Guild, is ‘The Maestro’ behind the bar.

For over 40 years, Calabrese has been making drinks in top hotels, private members clubs and exclusive cocktail bars. In 1980, he moved to England and joined the Dukes Hotel, where he came up with the concept of Liquid History and created the recipe for the ultimate Dry Martini.

He can now be found at Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair, running The Donovan Bar. Calabrese is a spirit obsessive, and has been known to compare mixology to art: 'a great painting is only as good as the canvas and cocktails are the same: the spirit is the canvas'. His attention to detail plays out in elegantly served, expertly nuanced drinks that cocktail novices and connoisseurs can all appreciate.

Gin is a spirit that is used frequently in his signature cocktails and, thus, is of the highest quality. The gin and tonic experience will take one on a journey of gin – from the elegantly spiced, to the interestingly dry, contrasted with the exotically herbal. Creating the perfect gin and tonic also means pairing the gin with the right tonic, which is all part of this educating experience.
