Boozy with bready genever, pear, citrus and faint rich honey.


Created in 2016 by Jan Halfpap at Bar Le Lion, Hamburg, Germany. This riff on the classic Journalist cocktail is named after a Dutch journalist called Robert Savelberg who lives and works in Berlin. Savelberg became famous in Germany due to his critical questioning during a press conference held over the coalition agreement of the new Federal Government in October 2009, and a subsequent satirical movie made by ZDF.
