This Shoreditch cocktail bar is certainly out of the ordinary, using no brands of spirits other than their own, no ice, and also serving a special booze-infused coffee that gives a special kick. This place has a rectifier's license, meaning everything from the water up is made in-house -- no, really, the water's redistilled to make sure it has specific minerals, and all spirits are distilled to the bar's unique design. There’s no shaking required here, just the even pour from pre-diluted, refrigerated, bottled cocktails onto a scale for that perfect wash line, every time. With a modern, industrial tables and chairs, everything from the drinks to decor at White Lyan seems futuristic.
