The Perfect Digestif
The Library Bar at The Lanesborough is famous for its cognac selection. The bar even boasts the oldest cognac in the world. The Librarian cocktail celebrates this connection with cognacs by creating a rich and sophisticated cocktail that can be enjoyed as alternative to a cognac on its own. A delightful after dinner drink, The Librarian is a perfect digestif with the beautiful flavours of vanilla combined with a sweetness from the cherry wine and a complexity from the vermouth.
