Disrepute

December 17, 2019

For those hankering for a spot of after dinner hi-jinx, Broken Clock Vodka is now being poured at Disrepute Bar in Kingly Court, London... a venue with a colourful and scandalous past.

The atmospheric and luxurious late night bar is located off Carnaby Street and it offers a carefully curated back bar and a cocktail menu with a modern twist on classic drinks.

It was a place to rub shoulders with film stars such as Peter O’Toole, Audrey Hepburn, Carey Grant and the notoriously bibulous Oliver Reed and was infamously where cabinet minister John Profumo first met call girl Christine Keeler, triggering the biggest scandal of the decade.

The timeless qualities of 1960s counterculture live on at Disrepute Bar today and this Broken Clock cocktail the Big-Bentini - currently on the menu as a special - is the ideal way to slip back to London’s Swinging Sixties and the spirit of its bon vivants.

Broken Clock Vodka, Suze, Italicus bergamot liqueur, orange bitters and honey are added to a mixing glass and stirred over plenty of ice. The cocktail is then strained into a chilled Nick and Nora glass and garnished with a crescent of orange peel. It’s complex, dissolute and rather delicious.
