Mrs Fogg’s to open with on-site distillery

27th September, 2018 by Owen Bellwood

London bar operator Inception Group is set to open a new site with an attached distillery as part of its Around the World in 80 Days-themed venues.

Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club & Distillery will open in Broadgate Circle

Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club and Distillery is the latest venue in the group’s chain of bars inspired by the adventures of fictitious Victorian explorer Phileas Fogg. This time, Mr Fogg’s wife, Aouda, has been used as inspiration for the new venue.

The bar, which will open in Broadgate Circle, will span two floors and will take guests on a “fantastical journey filled with exotic flavours, ingredients and relics”.

Inception Group co-founder, Charlie Gilkes, said: “”We are delighted that Mr Fogg has found his perfect partner and look forward to introducing Mrs Fogg to Londoners very soon.””

On the ground floor, a large central bar surrounded by foliage, large wooden fans and antique nautical items will provide a focal point from where the bar team will serve up Indian-spiced cocktails.

Libations listed at the new venue include the Ta-Ta’s Margarita, made with turmeric-infused Tequila, Rinomato Americano Blanco, chilli-infused honey, lime, starfruit and grapefruit tonic; and the Mumbai Donkey, a mix of cardamom-infused vodka, pear, parsley and ginger beer.

Downstairs, guests will discover the engine room, a secret space filled with cargo as well as a gin distillery, which will be modelled on the underground distilleries of the Victorian period.

The distillery will be used to create a in-house gin, while guests will be able to learn to make their own expressions that they can take home with them.

Mrs Fogg’s follows the recently opened Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration. Earlier this year, Inception Group’s announced plans to double its number of Around the World in 80 Days-themed venues
