Respect where it is due – as long as there are still those who are roused by a well-mixed cocktail rather than a beer. Cologne’s first cocktail boutique is definitely the port of call for anyone who enjoys holding a shaker in his or her own hands. In addition to 135 liquors from around the world, here you will find everything you need to prepare a perfect cocktail from A (absinth spoon) to Z (zester). The owners themselves run a bar and gladly share their knowledge in courses that will train you as an international bartender in just 5 days. For those, whose goal is to impress friends at home, there is the “Belle Booze Box”, a box of monthly changing ingredients for four drinks, recipes and utensils, all delivered directly to your door.
