Created in 2013 by Erik Lorincz, then Head Bartender at The American Bar, The Savoy Hotel, London. Erik was inspired after seeing a work by Claude Monet that hung in the hotel's Monet Suite, the room where, in 1901, the French impressionist originally sketched the pastel work entitled Waterloo Bridge.
