Where it is: London
What to drink: BC3 Negroni
The oldest bar in the mini-empire of Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka, Mr. Lyan), Dandelyan focuses on botany, taking a “nose-to-tail approach to flora.” The menu changes often, as Mr. Lyan continues to expand the limits of botanical beverages, but start with the Classics section, where you’ll find the BC3 Negroni. The take on a classic Negroni incorporates several floral ingredients, including vermouth infused with pollen, aged honey and propolis (aka, bee glue, a mixture of tree sap and beeswax). As Mr. Lyan puts it on the menu: “Bees are history’s explorers. Traversing new landscapes to find ‘gold’ for their queen and simultaneously pollinating flowers to create the fruits and vegetables we depend on—all whilst creating all the magical ingredients we love.” Make of that what you will.
