Tatler Takes Five

The co- founders of New York City’s The Dead Rab­bit— ranked num­ber one among the World’s 50 Best Bars— share five of their favourite things and sources of in­spi­ra­tion

Philippine Tatler - - CONTENTS -

1 ELIUD KIPCHOGE Jack: I’m in awe of Kenyan long dis­tance run­ner and elite marathon win­ner Eliud Kipchoge. He just ran the fastest (unofficial) marathon in his­tory at two hours and 25 sec­onds in Monza. l ad­mire peo­ple striv­ing for the im­pos­si­ble. 2 IR­ISH WHISKEY Ir­ish whiskey is the spirit that per­haps best rep­re­sents us. We have the big­gest col­lec­tion—190 bot­tles—in the United States. Our per­sonal favourite is called sin­gle pot still, which is made of a com­bi­na­tion of malted and un­malted bar­ley. If we had to choose one la­bel, it would have to be Red­breast 12 Year Old (Sean) and Pow­ers John’s Lane (Jack). 3 HAVANA NOCTURNE Sean: Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost It to the Rev­o­lu­tion is the last book I read and I highly rec­om­mend it. It’s all about the mob in Havana dur­ing the ’40s and ’50s. 4ROBERTO4 ROBERTO SALAS Jack: I love Cuban pho­tog­ra­pher Roberto Salas’ works. He had priv­i­leged ac­cess to Fidel Cas­tro, and, in a sense, was his per­sonal pho­tog­ra­pher. I picked up five of his iconic shots on a re­cent trip to Havana and had them signed. They are world-class—and now hang­ing in my apart­ment. 5 PSY­CHO KILLER Sean: My favourite cock­tail at The Dead Rab­bit is the Psy­cho Killer, which was cre­ated by our head bar­tender, Jil­lian Vose. It’s an ex­tremely clever take on a Boule­vardier, in­cor­po­rat­ing 12-yearold pot still Ir­ish whiskey, Cam­pari, ca­cao and ba­nana liqueur, and aro­matic bit­ters.
