Poitín is Ireland’s most notorious spirit, which has been going from strength to strength since becoming legal again in 1997. The purest form of whiskey they say, The Sun Tavern hosts one of the most extensive lists in the world. The tastings will take place at 2pm and 4pm and are subject to availability.

Umbrella Radio’s monthly takeover at The Sun Tavern for May saw Hoxton Radio’s Founder and Director, David Preshaah, take to the decks, spinning his take on non-specific Rock’n’Roll.  The event coincided with The Sun Tavern’s new cocktail menu launch, so there was extra cause for celebration!

Every month Umbrella Radio take control of the music at The Sun, usually with a live DJ set from our very own John Robinson who’s joined by a guest DJ playing their own take on “Non-Specific” rock and roll – everything from the 50’s & 60’s, through Glam, Punk & New Wave, to the Indie of yesteryear and today.

Group-Cocktail-5th menu-thesuntavern-bethnalgreen-edit-03

This month it was the turn of David Preshaah of Hoxton Radio – a digital station founded by David in 2012. Hoxton Radio shed light on pop culture in East London with a foundation of great music, all from their studio overlooking Spitalfields Market – you can read more about them here. Other recent guest DJ’s for Non-Specific have included Drew McConnell (Babyshambles, Helsinki), Palma Violets, Superfood and Rennie (The View).

Non Specific-may-2017-new menu-thesuntavern-bethnalgreen-08

The Sun Tavern launched their new cocktail menu on the same night. The traditional Irish spirit Poitín is very much a part of The Sun Tavern’s DNA, and the new menu was inspired by other indigenous spirits from all over the world. Think Arrack, Grappa, Slivovitz, Cachaça, Pisco, Sake, Mezcal and of course, Poitìn.

Group-Cocktail-5th menu-thesuntavern-bethnalgreen-edit-03 01

To accompany all this we be served the age old peasant staple – stew. Irish stew to be exact. Made to the Duffy family recipe (Our general manager’s family!)

The festivities went on until the early hours, and all in all it was a great night – If you missed it, make sure to pop by to check out the new menu as soon as you can (we’re happy to see The Evening Standard are fans of it…) Also don’t miss next month’s Non Specific!

International Poitín Day est. 18th November 2015

The Sun Tavern has got together with Bán Poitín on the 18th of November every year to commemorate the rebellious souls that kept the spirit of poitín alive through the dark days to its overdue legalisation in 1997.

On this official day to celebrate poitín, we hope to not only get across how amazing this spirit is, but also the diversity of the liquid where it can be sampled on its own, mixed or simply accompanying your favourite half ale as a boiler maker.

Here’s what you missed on the night…

St. Patrick’s Day on a Friday?

Bound to be boisterous!

The afternoon saw the calm before the storm. The Ceilidh band set the perfect backdrop for folks popping in to pay their respects to the good Saint himself.


The bar began to busy as ‘Whiskey In The Jar’ floated through the air. It must have whispered to the crowd, as the Whiskey began to flow.

Soon after, it was Oyster Boy’s turn to lead the party. Shucking his oysters fresh from Chelmsford to give the masses some sustenance. Swallow or chew, vinaigrette or Tabasco? A couple of questions that flew around, and were quickly answered as minds turned back to Camden Ink.

Umbrella Radio DJ’s warmed up the decks with some Irish classics from Thin Lizzy & Van Morrison next to firm favourites from The Clash & The Smiths et al. Father Ted was also lurking on the blinds…

The Bán Poitìn cocktails were hitting the spot, with the Irish Coffee #2 keeping people pepped for the night ahead….not to mention the Poitìn shots, here, there, and everywhere.

Enter stage left, Dublin’s legendary DJ, Arveene, a giant in name and stature. He stepped to the decks with an eclectic mix of party bangers, Irish or otherwise, turning the whole place into a dancefloor, even though it was standing room only!

Never a dull moment….here’s to The Saint!

Stone & Wood – Takeover Tuesday – January

26th January – 2017

January saw two of our beer taps pumping Stone & Wood all month. We also had Australia day on the 26th which worked out as a bit of a send off for having Stone & Wood in as our guests.

Pat Keeble, Stone & Wood’s man ‘up over’ as apposed to ‘down under’ pushing the beer here in London popped in one cold morning to have a chat and tell everyone what’s in store for Jan!

As winter now has a firm hold over London…

Warming yourself up with an Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beer.

Takeover Tuesday saw a collaboration with our sibling Umbrella Brewing that meant the cloudy, fiery and alcoholic stuff was a mere 2 quid for an early week beverage.

Head brewer Matt Armitage, was kind enough to have a sit down with us to provide a bit of context as to how the ginger beer came to be…

Ginger Beer is available on our website, in many of our cocktails and not to forget at  TT & Mixo the host’s of the Umbrella Brewing Launch.

Whiskey Wednesday – November – Bán Poitín

In November of 2016, for The Sun Tavern’s ever changing Whiskey Wednesday collaboration, the lads and Dave Mulligan of Bán Poitín got their heads together and came up with a slightly more alternative Whiskey Wednesday offer given that ‘Poitín Day’ falls on the 18th.

Instead of the lads behind the bar here in TST getting their hands stuck in to concocting some new liquids, Dave Mulligan called across to the London alliance of Irish bartenders to externally create some delightful cocktails using the white Irish Spirit, Bán Poitín.

These willing boys did us proud, starting with Chris Pawer (@pawarsie89) of The London Edition Hotel’s famous Punch Room (@punchroomLDN) with.

Finally, the man behind the brand Bán Poitín (@banpoitin), Dave Mulligan (@davemulligan).

A November to remember.

The Sun Tavern turned two this October and we celebrated with a good old-fashioned piss-up!

Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beers were going for 2 quid a bottle and the boys from Redchurch Brewery sent over a keg as a birthday present – which we put on for free until it was dead, cheers lads! (To be honest, we’re not so sure a keg is an appropriate gift for a two year old…)

Terry from the locksmiths across the street got us a specially engraved chopping board – so massive shout out to him for that, nice one Terry!

the-sun-tavern-cocktail-bar-bethnal-green-second-birthday-late-night-music-05-copy

Cheers also to our friends over at The Stone & Wood Brewing Co who chipped in with a case of their Pacific Ale.  Camden Town Brewery got in on the act too, sending us over a couple of free kegs the next day – lucky us! A big thank you to those chaps as well.

Umbrella Radio and the guys at superfood were banging out the tunes as part of our first ‘Non-specific’ rock’n’roll night, Umbrella Radio’s monthly takeover – don’t miss the next one!

We launched our new cocktail menu the same day and the cocktails and poitin flowed freely late into the night – a massive thanks to all those who came and made it such a great night, those that didn’t – make sure you’re there for our third! (But why wait til then – stop by next time you’re in the area for late-night music at the best cocktail bar in Bethnal Green!)

We’ve been working with Dewar’s Blended Scotch to produce a bespoke scotch cocktail list to run every Wednesday this month.

 

This September over here in Bethnal Green, Dewar’s really wanted to push the boat out for this edition of the Whiskey Wednesday cocktail menu. So, given that they’re a Scotch whisky brand, the idea of pairing each cocktail with a Scotch egg came about, creating the ultimate scotch serve!

Each cocktail is only a fiver and pair it with it’s given Scotch egg for only £3 more! Make sure if you’re around Bethnal Green you pop in for scotch sake!

If you’re in the Bethnal side of Bethnal Green Road on an August Wednesday, you should pop your head in here! We’ve got whiskey!

 

The Whiskey Wednesday collab for August meant the lads in the bar we’re getting stuck into crafting drinks using The Irishman Founders Reserve. Gavin McGowan-Madoo, who looks after the Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s The Irishman, came and had a chat about about whiskey on a Wednesday.

The blend of Founder’s Reserve is made up of two types of Whiskey, Single Malt and Single Pot Still. It’s also triple distilled and then after, matured in bourbon casks. This provides a great base for whiskey heavy cocktails and mixed drinks.

Have a look at what you could pick up on a Wednesday here at the bar…

Whiskey … or whisky?

It’s pretty well known that Irish ‘whiskey’ is spelt with an ‘e’ but scotch is simply ‘whisky.’ What’s not so well known is why…   The term ‘whiskey’ derives from he gaelic ‘uisce beatha’ – pronounced “uh-iss-keh beh-ah” – meaning water of life. This was abbreviated to ‘uiskie’ some time in the 17th century, which later […]

It’s pretty well known that Irish ‘whiskey’ is spelt with an ‘e’ but scotch is simply ‘whisky.’ What’s not so well known is why…

 

The term ‘whiskey’ derives from he gaelic ‘uisce beatha’ – pronounced “uh-iss-keh beh-ah” – meaning water of life. This was abbreviated to ‘uiskie’ some time in the 17th century, which later became ‘whiskie’ and then “whisky.”

So whisky basically just means ‘water’ – kind of like ‘vodka’ does…

How this became ‘whiskey’ is up for debate – some people claim that the shift happened so that frugal Scottish printers could save a bit of cash by making the word a bit shorter – however most think that the spelling difference arose in the 1870s when Irish distillers tried to distinguish themselves from the much poorer quality Scottish whisky that flooded the market after the invention of the Coffey still. Others think the split is down to the slight difference between the Irish gaelic and the Scots gaelic – ‘uisce beatha’ as opposed to ‘uisge beatha.’

Irish-whiskey-in-london-whiskey-bar-london-the-sun-tavern-bethnal-green

The large number of Irish emigrants to the States meant that the Americans adopted the Irish spelling – the Canadians and the Japanese chose to follow the Scots because… well – we don’t know why…

It remains a touchy subject for many – as famed New York Times Eric Asimov found out after being absolutely inundated with complaints when he used the Irish spelling for an article all about Scottish single malts.

To be honest, we don’t really mind how it’s spelt – we just know we love drinking it! Come join us at the best place to drink Irish whiskey in London – The Sun Tavern, Bethnal Green!

For the month of July, The Sun Tavern’s bespoke Whiskey Wednesday cocktail offering was in ties with Jameson Irish Whiskey. Murphy did a great job orchestrating the drinks, which definitely received a noticeable amount of interest.

Jameson wanted to use their new additions, Jameson Caskmates and Crested. The Caskmates offers a nose of slight pot still spices with apple and pear scents and featured in the Bow Street Runners. Crested brings a different take on Irish whiskey to the bar with a sherry like, fruity and chocolaty taste and was the base of the Róisín Buí and the Hell’s Ditch.

This is what it looks like on a Wednesday…

Oyster Boy-Colombia Road-thesuntavern-cocktail-bar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-small-02

 

Can you tell us the relevance of oysters In East London?

While it has a reputation of decadence and high society now, back in the day, Victorian times and before, around Hackney and Whitechapel oysters and lobsters were the food of the poor. There was actually a legislation that grouped lobsters, oysters and rats as being illegal to be the sole food of prisoners because they were thought so poorly of.

Oyster Boy-Colombia Road-thesuntavern-cocktail-bar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-small-07  Oyster Boy-Colombia Road-thesuntavern-cocktail-bar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-small-13

They were like, “You can’t just give them that crap”. That was to do with the quality of the water and of how they were handled. As technology’s moved on, we can bring them in from cleaner waters like Chelmsford in Essex and La Rochelle in France. You can now get incredible, incredible oysters. So they’ve moved in the same way as East London, it used to be a working class area and oysters used to be a working class food.

 

What’s the difference between a Rock and a Native?

Native oysters are European oysters. They’ve always been from European waters. So if you hear about the Romans or the Celts having oysters they’d have small, clam-like, flat ones. During the 40’s and rationing we decimated our native oyster population, so we brought over the Pacific Rock Oyster from North America which are much hardier and don’t have the same breeding pattern. They’ve been here almost 80 years now so they’re like third generation immigrants, but they’re Native Rock Oysters now.

Oyster Boy-Colombia Road-thesuntavern-cocktail-bar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-small-15

Oyster Boy-Colombia Road-thesuntavern-cocktail-bar-bethnalgreen-edit-crop-small-23

 

Chew or swallow?

Chew! Chew! Chew! Chew with your tongue against the roof of your mouth. It’s not a cheap experience but it’s a bloody delicious experience! If you swallow, it’s like getting a great whiskey and shooting it.

 

What’s your favourite Chas & Dave song?

Rabbit. It’s got to be hasn’t it.

For the month of June, The Sun Tavern’s rotating Whiskey Wednesday collaboration was with The Dubliner Irish Whiskey.

 

As a new Irish Whiskey, The Dubliner were very keen to be apart of what we do and really try to showcase how their spirits work in cocktails.

Introducing Irish Whiskey to new people through cocktails is a really good way of doing so, because cocktails are already a way of drinking that people like and are familiar with.

We also did an interview with Darryl McNally, Master Distiller of The Dubliner, and when we asked him about what he thought about Whiskey Wednesday’s this is what he said…

“For the younger generation, it really opens them up to whiskey and changes the perception that only old men drink whiskey because your introducing whiskey to them in a format that they already have an interest in which is cocktails.”

 

You can catch the full interview on The Umbrella Project website here
