1520 Bar, in the heart of the Latin Quarter is a perfect representative of the modern bar in Galway, steeped in history that it embraces, but with an exciting modern edge. Anyone looking for the traditional bar comforts can enjoy the old school medieval atmosphere with a pint or a selection of cocktails from our seasonal menu, dreamed up in house.
A twist on a Manhattan, we’ve selected Powers John’s Lane as our base spirit. Balancing with our “Wild West Berry” Vermouth, a homemade Vermouth, infused with local hawthorn and blackberries, we add 3 dashes of our homemade “Citrus & Smoke” bitters. We finish by smoking the cocktail, in a bell jar, with tea leaves and dried berries. Stirred and presented in coupe w/ grapefruit and cherry.
John’s Lane Release is a celebration of the original style of Powers Whiskey and the quintessential Irish Single Pot Still distillate. Matured for 12 years, the result is an outstanding lingering robust taste that provides a perfect tribute to the spiritual home of one of Ireland’s most loved whiskeys.
