Where do you think drinks are headed in London in terms of trends, tastes, and designs?
Perrone: I truly believe that the quality of the ingredients is incredibly important, and finding innovative ways to heighten the guest experience is equally important. For example, at The Connaught, we use dry ice for all our drinks. This stops the cocktails from diluting, allowing the taste of the drink and the overall experience to last longer.
Is there anything you can share for future plans?
Perrone: We are very excited to be working on our new menu, which we will be launching early next year. It has taken some time for us to find innovative ways to continue to delight our guests. I’ve been fortunate to travel the world, discovering new flavours and ingredients to heighten the guests’ experience.
