BC (BEFORE COCKTAILS)

History of Edibles

We’ll take you on a journey to a period predating the Cosmopolitan. A time predating the birth of the Martini. To an era older than an Old Fashioned. Before Cocktails explores the pre-history of the today’s blended drink.  We have unusual artefacts, edible curiosities, entertaining anecdotes and historically inspired blended drinks that influenced the modern cocktails we know today. It  is equal parts edible museum, exhibition and bar experience. When future generations look back to our time, the will no doubt see it as the start of a boom in cannabis edibles, but we’re not interested in joining that trend.  Alcohol-based cannabis extracts used to be an important feature of apothecaries. Will mixologist infuse cocktails this way, in public, legally in the coming years, or will this controversial practice remain untenable in all but a couple cities across the globe?
