Cocktail Lounge

The Home of Hope


Explore, sample and experience Hope Distillery for yourself.

Our StrangeLove Cocktail Lounge is open for private events and tastings.

The StrangeLove Cocktail Lounge, sited in what was the distillery’s mezzanine level tasting room, features paired-back Scandi furnishings in dark hues, lush greenery, and wooden finishes.   Available for private events and tastings, resident bar-tender Decks serves up carefully curated cocktails – which can also be paired with food platters.  Guests can take in the bird’s-eye view over the distillery and its copper stills, and get a glimpse into the story behind the spirits they sip.

Various packages are available, including our House Menu, which is a curated cocktail-and-mini-food-pairing menu, served in three courses: aperitifs, mains and digestifs. Pairings include the Sbagliato, comprising house campari-style liquor, vermouth and prosecco, along with a taralli cracker; the El Presidente, a cocktail of rhum agricole, vermouth and grenadine, with rolled labneh and salted cracker; and the Gin Alexander, made with gin, cacao and nutmeg, with a mini nutmeg macaron.

There’s also a Classic Cocktail menu to choose from as well as a selection of Martinis and other drinks or a gin or spirits tasting.
