Legendary coffee liquor brand Mr Black and London’s Bar Swift, voted Best New International Cocktail Bar, are joining forces next month to bring some of London’s finest classic tipples and never-before-tasted Mr Black cocktails down under for one night only. Set to take place on Wed 13 Feb, Swift Bar’s Managing Director, Bobby Hiddleston, and Hamish Dowie, Winner of the 2018 Mr Black x Swift Bartender Competition, will curate a bespoke menu of Mr Black and Swift classic cocktails, with drinks from the night being available for a limited time in Charlie Parker’s, in case you miss out.
Bar Swift London has cemented itself as one of Europe’s top spots, recently adding World’s 50 Best Bars to its bevy of awards. During the evening, Bobby and Hamish will delight patrons with a theatrical cocktail experience, doing what they and Mr Black do best, taking coffee and good times late into the night.
On the menu will be Bar Swift favourites Sgroppino, an unexpectedly delicious fusion of prosecco and lemon sorbet, as well as Hamish Dowie’s winning cocktail, Higher Ground – a smooth blend of Mr Black, Mr Black Amaro, orange bitters and coconut. Cocktails will be paired with popular items on Charlie Parker’s menu including oysters, potato croquettes with smoked burrata and salsa brava, and the pork and veal meatballs.
Commenting on the collaboration, Mr Black Co-Founder, Tom Baker says, “Swift opened in London in 2017 and quickly established themselves as one of Europe’s best cocktail bars. At Mr Black, we’re proud to be the coffee of choice for many of the world’s best bars and restaurants, and it’s our pleasure to bring these titans of London’s industry to Sydney to showcase the future of coffee and cocktails.”
In case you won’t be in Sydney on Wed 13 February, Charlie Parker’s will be hosting a selection of the best Mr Black and Swift Bar cocktails for a limited time. It’s not every day that two of the world’s best bartenders and local legendary coffee liquor team up, so grab your friends and head to Charlie Parker’s. Entry is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
