Kumquat, what? Purl Gin is here!


We have been infusing gin with kumquats for our Mind The Gap cocktail since 2016 (this is the cocktail we serve in the Big Ben money box) and this was the inspiration for distilling our own gin. Everyone else is doing it, so why not! Although, as far as we know, ours is the only gin infused [...]

We’re not ashamed to say that our Instagram posts are still full of cocktails and what we eat – if it looks good, it looks good and seeing as many of London’s mixologists aren’t just creating cocktails but also mini works of art, we can’t help it. So we’ve rounded up 10 of London’s most [...]


Exploding balloons, creme brûlée and a whole load of smoke. It can only mean one thing…


Yep you guessed it... tennis.  Only jeffing. We're talking about London's most innovative cocktails at Marylebone's smouldering speakeasy bar, PURL.   We popped along to PURL at 4pm a few weeks back. Daytime drinking you say!? Not at all like us at all! Honest (hic).  It has an air of prohibition glamour about it: moody lighting, [...]

Mixology in Marylebone


This basement Marylebone cocktail bar was one of the first on the London molecular mixology scene — here you’ll find incredible smoky potions, billowing smog, leaping flames, foams and all sorts of boozy magic. The bare-bricked bar is a special mishmash of old Victoria charm and plush vintage glamour, with worn Chesterfields, faded books on [...]

Meet Rafaela – Bartender


Purl would not function if it were not for the incredible team we have behind the bar. Rafaela, originally from Portugal, started at Purl in September 2016, as a waitress but when she started to learn about bar tendering she moved to bar back and swiftly made her way up bartender.   When did you [...]
