We’re matching the weather next month, brightening up our monthly Whisk(e)y Cocktails selection giving Nikka Days Japanese Blended Whisky it’s moment in the sun.

A vibrant addition to the Nikka range, this is a bright and vivacious marriage of malt and grain whiskies sourced from both Nikka’s Yoichi and Miyagiko distilleries.

Boasting a medium body, it possesses an array of floral and zesty flavours, an underlying vanilla-toffee depth, and a light touch of peat smoke to finish.

This light, fresh, and delicate whisky makes for a delicious sipping dram, and is just as at home sitting in a tall, refreshing highball. Perfect for the warmer climes ahead.

July’s gearing up to be a sweltering month here in the Big Smoke, so what better way to cool off every Tuesday than with a brand new range of £3 pints?

The guys at Highgate’s Gorgeous Brewery are next up behind the stick. They’re fiercely independent, family-owned, and family-run – following in the footsteps of their grandmother Marion.

They pride themselves on using as little automation as possible, since this means that a whole lot more hard work and care goes into everything they make. All their beers are unrefined, unfiltered, and 100% vegan so you can drink with that moral compass well and truly intact.

You can expect their Gunpowder IPA, Guzzla Lager, along with some other brews on our taps. Cheers.

The 26th October sees this month’s Non-Specific land on The Sun Tavern’s 3rd birthday…and the launch of our New Cocktail list.

 To celebrate another lap around the…erm..Sun, we thought it only right to invite Umbrella Project guru and keen music enthusiast, Andy Kerr to take to the decks and give us his take on Non-Specific Rock ‘n’ Roll. Quite the expert in 80’s & 90’s indie, but his knowledge doesn’t stop there. Expect a broad and riotous set.

The New Cocktail list will continue to focus on the indigenous and often overlooked spirits of the world. Think Eastern Europe’s Slivovitz, Peru & Chile’s Pisco, Scandinavia’s Akvavit, Marc from France, Italy’s Grappa, and needless to say Poitín from Ireland.

As per the norm, we’ll have the delicious Vietnamese baguettes, Bánh mì on hand for sustenance, absolutely free.

This months’ Takeover Tuesdays at The Sun Tavern sees our good friends Fourpure taking to the taps, with two lines dedicated to them all month.

Bermondsey based Fourpure, is a family run (brothers Dan & Tom Lowe) brewery. Inspired by the four vital ingredients – grain, yeast, hops & water; and their travels, it’s their attention to detail that has seen their beers return to The Sun Tavern, time after time.

We’ll be hosting some favourites, such as Shapeshifter IPA, alongside some even more adventurous brews like Beartooth American Brown – swing by and reward yourself!

 

Michter’s – Whiskey Wednesdays, November

NOVEMBER’S WHISKEY WEDNESDAYS AT THE SUN TAVERN WILL FEATURE ONE OF THE GODFATHERS OF AMERICAN WHISKEY PRODUCTION, MICHTER’S.

Coming straight out of their 7.5 acre, 67,000 square foot facility in Louisville, we will be featuring their four main Whiskeys – Rye, Bourbon, American & Sour Mash – each of which are carefully created by master distiller Pam Heilmann and her team.

Their attention to detail shines through at stage of their process; they toast their barrels before charring to form what they call the ‘red line’ which makes the wood’s sugars more accessible. More concerned with quality rather than quantity, their entry proof for their Rye and Bourbon is only 103 which they say allows the concentrated sugars dissolve more readily into the distillate, making for a richer flavour despite a reduced yield. Finally, they chill filter all of their whiskeys instead of standard carbon filtration to ensure that the flavour and aroma of every bottle is maintained.

As with every Whiskey Wednesday, you can either opt for a ‘beer & a bump’ or one of our bespoke cocktails for £6 every Wednesday of the month. On top of this, we have carefully curated a triplet of Michter’s based creations – the Shenk, the Valley Coin and the Kentucky Cherry.

Check out some shots below:

Valley Coin – Michter’s Rye, Nocino Amaro, Fig, Lemon & Bitter Truth Aromatic.

 

Shenk – Michter’s Sour Mash, Amontillado Sherry, Lemon, Orgeat & Cinnamon.

 

Kentucky Cherry – Michter’s Bourbon, Bold Cherry Aperitif & Cassis.

Whiskey Wednesdays at The Sun Tavern are a pretty big deal in October. Featuring a menu curated by The Dead Rabbit’s Jillian Vose and ourselves, we’ll be showcasing the delights of Slane Irish Whiskey.

 On 4th October Jillian herself will be behind the bar for the evening, showing off her half of the cocktail menu, having flown in from NYC’s and ‘Best Bar In The World’ winners, The Dead Rabbit.

There’ll be a Ceilidh band from the early evening then DJ’s following on, playing classics from Slane Castle gigs of the past – where the Slane distillery is situated.

Slane Irish Whiskey goes through a triple casked process which is where it gains it’s complex qualities – toasted oak & vanilla from the virgin casks, plum & caramel from the seasoned casks, and raisin & spice from the sherry casks. All these nuances make it not only perfect for drinking on it’s own, but great in cocktails too.

If you can’t make it down on the 4th fear not, these cocktails are available every Whiskey Wednesday in October for £6 as always.
