SquareMeal Review of The Cocktail Trading Company Brick Lane

Silver Award

After temporary residencies in some other venues' basements, Andy Milz, Olly Brading and Elliot Ball (three chums with impeccable cocktail-centric CVs) set up a permanent basecamp at this 1920s-inspired gin joint. 'Camp' is the operative word for flights of fancy whose garish presentation usually involves some tongue-in-cheek gewgaw. How about Tom & Jerry (a spicy bourbon, Curaçao and salted chestnut gelato float served with a cheese-baited mousetrap on the side), Instaspam (an apple brandy sour served in a retro luncheon meat tin) or the equally outrageous Bag O’ Chips (a poitín-based wheeze wrapped in a paper cone). Fortunately, CTC's cocktails are more sophisticated than their joke-shop garnishes suggest. And, lest we put off purists, the boys are quite capable of shaking up a folderol-free Brooklyn, Boulevardier or any other classic you care to call. A 'global tapas' menu is now up and running for peckish imbibers.
