The craft of drink­ing

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

A new bar that in­vents its own Teesside-themed drinks has opened its doors.

The Ar­ti­zan has launched on Ro­man Road in Linthorpe, and bosses say those look­ing for some­thing a bit different will not be dis­ap­pointed in the vast ar­ray of drinks and the type of ex­pe­ri­ence on of­fer.

Cus­tomers can choose from 24 types of gin, some of which are in­fused with var­i­ous flavours by The Ar­ti­zan’s staff, as well as sam­ple “the most ex­pen­sive cock­tail on Teesside”.

It’s headed by broth­ers An­thony, 27, and Andrew Hynes, 33, to­gether with friend Paul Wood, 36, and the lo­cal lads have a big vi­sion for the fu­ture.

“What sets us apart from the rest is the qual­ity of our drinks. We use premium in­gre­di­ents and serve good beers in the cor­rect glasses; it’s about stan­dards and we want to give peo­ple a great ex­pe­ri­ence when drink­ing here.”

Cock­tails such as the Trans­porter, Bot­tle of Notes (served in a smoked bot­tle) and Cleve­land Hills all add a re­gional feel and there will also be a show-stop­ping £100 bev­er­age called The Welder’s Mar­garita.

The bar will also of­fer an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to get in­volved in the cock­tails busi­ness too.

The team will be work­ing along­side the coun­cil to set up the Ar­ti­zan School of Cock­tails where they will help lo­cal peo­ple get into the pro­fes­sion through a train­ing scheme.
