Hush Presents: The Golden Era

Hark back to the golden era of journeys on the high seas, with Hush Mayfair and Brugal 1888 rum.

Think Palm trees. Gold. Bottles of rum. This Autumn our Lancashire Court cobbles are ocean-bound to the Caribbean, with the help of Dominican Republic barrel-aged rum, Brugal 1888.

We’re keeping things autumnal with hints of gold and wood, our iconic Mayfair alfresco space will bloom into a lush tropical landscape, resplendent with golden palm trees, a tropical leaf archway and vintage ship artefacts displaying all of the Hush family jewels.

Working with the Brugal 1888 team, our Bar Manager William Solorzano has created four cocktails to celebrate the occasion, all of them guaranteed to shiver your timber. For a dry twist on the classic sidecar, a Shark’s Bait or two may have you walking (or falling off) the plank, with Brugal 1888, Clément Creole shrubb, lemon juice, and a sugar rim, whilst for something guaranteed to put a smile on your skull and crossbones, the Jolly Roger features Brugal 1888, 30/40 Normandie Aperitif and La Copa vermouth. Like your grog a little strong? Go for the Bitter Blackbeard: inspired by the timeless Vieux Carré, it’s a heady mix of Brugal 1888, Makers 46, Benedictine, Peychaud’s and Angostura bitters, and La Copa vermouth. Or, for the energy to help you master any storm, plump for the Captain’s Courage, with Brugal 1888, Tia Maria, Frangelico and double espresso.

Our Menu specials take their cue from the Dominican Republic’s Latin flavours and tropical climes, such as the Baked Empanada stuffed with slow-cooked pork, Lyonnaise onions and tomatoes, Coconut Crumbed Prawns with lime aioli and Grilled Red Snapper with mango, coriander lime vinaigrette, Spanish fried rice and cassava bites, and we’ve even managed to sneak some rum into the menu, with Brugal Rum Roasted Chicken and chilli pineapple relish. Land-lubbers will surely want to save room for pudding though – the Banana Tarte Tatin with gold leaf vanilla ice cream will make you think you’ve struck buried treasure.
