About

Our thoughtfully stocked hotel bar is a moody blue retreat – named after a poem by Wordsworth fondly remembering a day’s romantic dalliance with a young lady in the Samling grounds. The Reverie offers lively alternatives to our Wine List for connoisseurs of cocktails to be enjoyed in the bar, or under the stars on the terrace, with a view across Lake Windermere and the Coniston Mountain range. This is one cocktail bar in the Lake District that places quality over quantity, a carefully curated collection contains a list of international bests, identifying the most favoured national spirits and liquors then sourcing the most discerning makers before we even begin the process of buying and importing to the UK.

We’re tracking down the rarest and most elusive editions of the best spirits in the world – the newest additions are a 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, and Decanter no:0319 of the Hennessey Paradis Imperial blended Cognac. Sometimes pure and simple is the best way to enjoy the great names and brands, but the choice is yours. Our signature cocktail is The 22.5 …a heady mix of Christian Faure Grand Armagnac 1935, Chateau d’Yquem 2004, The Samling’s own wildflower honey, Darjeeling and Chamomile, and Sir Winston Churchill Pol Roger Champagne. Garnished with 22.5 carat gold flakes and served in a Cumbria Crystal Champagne Flute, (yours to keep).
