Award-winning mixologist and sommelier Lauren Mote and chef Jonathan Chovancek create seasonal cocktails featuring their handcrafted Bittered Sling Extracts.
The Peater Rabbit was originally created as a “literary libation” and tribute to the Islay whiskies of Scotland, which are richly flavoured from the malted barley’s character, developed from peat smoke. “I have a love and affinity for my time spent in Scotland and the spirits produced there,” says Mote. “This cocktail is a ode, in a way, to my favourite spirits and the wonderfully memorable childhood stories of Peter Rabbit.”
