Giant Panda Julian De Feral - Bartender & Consultant 50cl
To mark Earth Day on 22 April 2021, Place of the Way challenged 16 of the world’s best bartenders to create a selection of wildlife-inspired cocktails. Each cocktail represents one of the world’s most endangered animals and all proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund, a leading conservation organisation with a mission to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together.
A 50cl bottle of Flying Panda Punch, made by award winning bartender and consultant Julian de Feral.
Julian de Feral had this to say of his creation:
'I have decided to splice the distinctive and rare giant panda with the literal ‘spirit animals’ popularized in Mexican folk art; the fantastical alebrijes created by cartonero Pedro Linares. Although tequila is now widely accepted and respected, for a long time it suffered the same suspicion and misunderstanding that – despite being the most consumed spirit in the world –baiju also suffers in the Western world. If treated with respect I feel like the ancient spirit baiju can bring a lot of complexity and an incredible spectrum of flavours to mixed drinks that are rarely capitalized on whether in the West or even China… In this case I have reached for fenjiu, which is a lighter style of baiju that is infused post-distillation with bamboo leaves, connecting back to the giant panda who consume up to 84 pounds of the stuff on a daily basis to survive.'
Here is a full list of ingredients:
Tequila Curado Espadin, bamboo leaf baiju, gunpowder tea, cucumber bitters, triple mint blend, Everleaf Mountain aperitif, unrefined sugar, citrus x vegetable acid blend, 22 artesian mineral water.
