Want to go off-menu? That’s music to our mixologists’ ears!
Cocktails are going nowhere. But a surge in customer interest and demand for exciting, exceptional mixed drinks is forcing Dubai bars and restaurants to up their game and get creative. A brief like that is nothing but a privilege for the Hunter & Barrel mixology team, who are picked for their passion and trained to the highest standards – which you’ll see and sip this for yourself when you try out the new Beverage Menu now available at our Dubai and Abu Dhabi locations.
But what if you don’t know what you want? Or you’re bored with your go-to drink, but need guidance in selecting something new? Well, that’s where we come in!
The Rise of Craft Cocktails
Gone are the days when a cocktail was merely a quick stir of spirits and mixers. We’ve moved away from the classics (although the Cosmopolitan, Mai Tai, Martini and more still have a firm place in both Hunter & Barrel hearts and on our Beverage Menu!) and instead made the skill, artistry and emotiveness of ‘craft cocktails’ commonplace.
We have options. Flavours, textures, aromas, and even garnishes and glassware, all working together to create a multi-sensory experience. And that’s why Hunter & Barrel is ready and waiting to create the cocktail that’s going to make your day go from good, to “OMG, you need to taste this”.
The Hunter & Barrel Difference
“Our team loves to experiment with bespoke beverages and create unique drinks tailored to our customers’ preferences,” explains Bishnu Ban, Bar Manager at Hunter & Barrel UAE.
“We understand that everyone has different tastes when it comes to cocktails. It’s really important to us to create something truly special for each customer, and that means we often go off-menu. It’s one of the most exciting parts of the job!”
You won’t know what all the fuss is about when it comes to barrel-aged cocktails… until you try them. Then and only then will you realise why ageing spirits in oak barrels to infuse them with a smooth, spicy or even smoky flavour, is worth every second.
Barrel-ageing our spirits means Hunter & Barrel cocktails have stood out in Dubai and Abu Dhabi since we first emerged on the UAE bar and restaurant scene. And we’ve been evolving the experience we serve up ever since.
