Our thoughtfully stocked bar is a moody blue retreat – named after a poem by Wordsworth where he fondly remembers a day’s romantic dalliance with a young lady in the Samling grounds.
Carefully edited by Sam Alldrick, Liquid Chef, The Reverie offers lively alternatives to our Wine List for connoisseurs of cocktails. A fully qualified chef he brings his skills to his liquid kitchen – sourcing the best ingredients and devising deliciously lush combinations.
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 leaf and served in a Cumbria Crystal champagne Flute, (yours to keep).
He’s the man in charge of the mini-bar selections in your rooms too.
