Duck & Waffle intros flavour-focused cocktails

30th November, 2017 by Nicola Carruthers

Leading London bar Duck & Waffle has introduced a new drinks menu, featuring flavour-focused serves from Rich Woods’s new cocktail book, The Cocktail Guy.

The new cocktail list features the Martini-style Acorn Aperitivo

Woods, who is head of spirit and cocktail development at Duck & Waffle, has unveiled a series of flavour-focused serves from his new book.
The new drinks list follows the launch of Origins, which focused on highlighting every flavour note in each individual ingredient. The menu stemmed from the bar’s previous Urban Foraging vs. Urban Decay menu.

His new book The Cocktail Guy is split into three chapters, the first is inspired by the garden and the outdoors, the second is from the kitchen, and the third, which is “more geared towards the professional”, is iconoclastic and will focus on “classics but with a new approach”.

Speaking to The Spirits Business in August, Woods said: “Its really about how I approach drink, how I look at flavour and also, demystifying what people believe is a farfetched approach. And a lot of what I do, everyone assumes it’s all smoke and mirrors, and very complex. When actually what I’ve actually tried to do with this is say it’s really quite simple.”

The Cocktail Guy is available on Amazon now.
