Sean McGoldrick, Bar Manager at the No. 27, brings a modern approach to the Shelbourne’s drinks offering.

On developing The Shelbourne’s cocktail list, which is recreated seasonally, Sean says: “A cocktail menu is just as important as a food menu now, you only have one shot to make a good impression and if you don’t get it right it can affect your reputation.”

He added: “The Shelbourne always had a great cocktail list but I look at things a little differently.

“For example, we took The Bramble, a cocktail created in the 1980s, made with gin, lemon,sugar syrup and flavoured with crème de mûre, but when we were developing the new list I said to the staff ‘how do we make it our own?’

“So we got an Irish gin, Gunpowder and made our own crème de mûre.”
