Review:

By Thodoris Pirillos, A For Athens

“Which tattoos do I prefer? The anchors! It's a symbol of robustness, stability, devotion and consistency with one’s decisions. For me it is a symbol of great importance, and a notion I always try to implement in life. I always try to be the best I can in everything I do.

I will drop my anchor in Paris of the ’20s. At Harry's Bar I'll meet the exquisite bartender Harry MacElhone and his companions, a bunch of intellectual bon viveurs who call themselves “bar flies”, as their hobby is digging out the best bars around!

One of them, Erskine Gwynne, a writer and publisher of the monthly magazine Boulevardier, has created the namesake cocktail. It’s the cocktail I want to play with, binding it with the House of Hennessy − a House with a long heritage, and devotion and persistence in quality. I dedicate my cocktail to, who else?, the restless bon viveurs, of course.”
