This spring and summer London-based cocktail bar Super Lyan will be visiting cities across the UK with Jack Daniel’s Whiskey for the Tennessee Nitro Tours. In honour of Super Lyan’s innovative cocktail the Tennessee Nitro Martini, which was the first of its kind when it launched, the team will be collaborating with local, like-minded bars. For one night only at each stop, Super Lyan will be behind the bar allowing cocktail fans across the UK to sample the Tennessee Nitro Martini as part of a special Jack Daniel’s cocktail menu. Kicking off in Manchester on 20th March at Peggy’s, Super Lyan will then go on to visit Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Belfast and do a bar takeover in its home city of London.
Super Lyan is the third venue from internationally renowned and multi-award winning bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan. A basement bar in Hoxton, it takes seemingly familiar classic cocktails and spruces them up with a touch of Lyan magic, with sustainability a key focus.
The Tennessee Nitro Martini is one of the bar’s signature drinks, and takes the espresso martini to the next level. It combines Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey with a homemade cola syrup and Sandows Cold Brew Coffee, which is then pulled through a nitrous keg system for a soft, effervescent texture reminiscent of Guinness. Served in a coupe and finished with a spritz of bergamot, the result is a creamy, complex cocktail that can be served extra quick. The first cocktail of its kind to use such technology, it also means the cocktail can be kegged making it sustainable, and was at the forefront of the eco-friendly cocktail trend.
In each city Super Lyan will be partnering with a bar which took part in last year’s Tennessee Calling programme, and will be working with the local team to develop a menu for the evening. Alongside the Tennessee Nitro Martini there will also be cocktails such as the Chattanooga Cooler and a special serve from the host bar. The line-up currently includes:
March - Peggy’s Bar in Manchester
April – Lucky Liquor Co in Edinburgh
May – Hedonist Project in Leeds
June – Filter & Fox in Liverpool
July – Callooh Callay in London
Belfast –to be announced soon…
