'The Dead Canary' is a Cardiff bar that is now celebrating its Welsh heritage with an all-new 'Cock’tales' menu.
The cocktail menu weaves together 12 stories to form a journey through Medieval Welsh mythology, which are known together as the Mabinogion. Some of the cocktails on the illustrated menu include First Prince, White Dragon and Knights of Legend, which favor the use of historical ingredients, revered medical remedies and herbs. 'Son of the Sea' is a cocktail that's crafted with a base of Death’s Door Gin, Cocchi Americano, Ceylon Arrack, as well as special editions to evoke a salty flavor like olive brine, sea salt and seaweed.
Since the cocktail menu is illustrated and styled like a book, certain cocktails are grouped together in "chapters" to be enjoyed together. For instance, the 'Otherworld' chapter is said to include a set of drinks with a fiery, strong intensity.
