White Lyan is a completely unique cocktail bar that just opened its doors in September on Hoxton Street in London. What makes it very unusual is that it forgoes all perishable cocktail ingredients, including citrus, liqueurs and even ice. Instead of the traditional lemon or lime, the White Lyan gets creative with other souring agents. Iceless drinks that are meant to be served chilled are simply refrigerated and as Ryan Chetiyawardana, one of the White Lyan’s co-founders notes:" It's amazing to see how different the mouth-feel and length is in a drink when you're not 'tasting' ice."

The partnership between Ryan Chetiyawardana and Iain Griffiths boasts a totally revolutionary drinking experience. The duo makes their own spirits and hardly any spirit brands are in sight at the bar. The novelty factor of the White Lyon, plus the allure of the molecular drinks will have Londoners flocking to get a taste of this unusual experience.
