Bar raided after selling 'whale meat' cocktail


By JACK LOSH
Published: 09th December 2012


A trendy London bar has been raided for selling a cocktail allegedly flavoured – with illegal WHALE meat.

Cops swooped on the Nightjar bar in Hoxton, East London, where barmen were serving the Moby Dick drink.

It contained Laphroaig whisky, Drambuie, ale, bitters and a “whale skin infusion”.

The raid last week comes amid a Europe-wide ban on whale meat and products, except under strict restrictions in Greenland and Denmark.

1. Ewww

And not just for the whale meat.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to abominate a perfectly good measure of Laphroaig with a bunch of stuff like Drambuie, ale, and bitters. It's kind of a sacrilege. This cocktail mania is getting really out of hand: mixing together a crazy-quilt bunch of perfectly good stuff does not necessarily equal a better libation, just a mess. In other words the sum of the parts is not always better than the whole.

As a lover of Islay whiskeys, I'll drink me Laphroig neat, thank you very much.

2. That's like the Star Trek IV of cocktails

 

There's no possible reason for there to be whales in it, but there they are.
