The Estate, famed for their bewitching live experiences, have now added MS. BELLE LIVINGSTONE’S SUPERIOR MEDICINAL SPIRITS COMPANY to their portfolio, a company specialising in home-delivered kits that offer everything – spirits, syrups, bitters, bartenders equipment,
Those who buy the box are invited to suspend reality and transport themselves back to New York City in the summer of 1928. High society speakeasy owner Belle Livingstone has been forced to close her famed bar, One Man House, by federal agents. Undeterred by the setback, the crafty owner has come up with an outrageous way round the ban – delivering the Speakeasy direct to her valued customers in the comfort of their homes.
Teaming up with Romola Remus, Hollywood starlet and now owner of her disgraced father George’s ‘medicinal distillery’ empire, Belle has created a mail order pack of ‘medical spirits’ with guides on how to transform them into miraculous ‘mixed cure-all remedies.’ Coincidentally
In the box is a letter from Belle herself, explaining what’s in the pack and how to use it. Keeping the guest utterly immersed, this letter has been hurriedly typed on the back of a blank medicinal alcohol prescription.
Included in the box are all the ingredients (spirits, bitters and syrups) to make two servings each of six Prohibition classics such as: Gin Fizzes, Old Fashioneds, Bees Knees and Mojitos. As usual with The Lost Estate, ingredients are of the highest quality, with the likes of Embargo, City of London Gin and Four Roses (itself originally a Prohibition ‘medicinal whiskey’ brand) all included. The box also contains a full bartender’s kit – shaker, muddler, strainer, bar spoon and jigger – plus a set of recipe cards, bar skills manual and two beautiful Prohibition-style Nick and Nora glasses. With clear but insightful recipes that explain the science of cocktail-making, not just the actions required, the experience aims both to immerse the guest in the height of the Jazz Age, and leave them with new, masterly mixology skills.
The full box costs £99.99. For “experts” who have the equipment already at home, a stripped down box can be requested with just the ingredients and experience cards.
Buying the box will mean lifetime membership of the Livingstone Club. This is a password-protected website where refills for the kit and exclusive new sets can be found. Indeed, Belle has already begun a review of her outrageous adventures through Monte Carlo, Paris and London, a sojourn so full of steamy affairs and outlandish excesses, that it won her the title of most dangerous woman in Europe from the scandalized British Press
