Be At One bar menus have added The Painkiller – the modern classic cocktail made with Pusser’s Rum.
Making its debut on the group’s Christmas drinks menu, the cocktail is made with Pusser’s Rum Gunpowder Proof, the rich and full-bodied 54.5% ABV expression with rums aged for at least three years.
The Painkiller is said to have been created in the 1970s at the six-seat Soggy Dollar Bar on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. According to the cocktail’s registered trademark, it must be made with Pusser’s Rum.
Peter Thornton, UK marketing manager for Pusser’s Rum at UK distributor Cellar Trends, said: “For such an important cocktail bar to take on the Pusser’s Painkiller is hugely exciting. This drink has a rich and intriguing history, not to mention it tastes great.
“The Be At One listing will help us reach more younger consumers. We look forward to what we hope we will be a great future with Be At One.”
Nick Lewis, learning and development officer at Be At One Group, added: “We are always looking for great cocktails to keep our menu innovative and exciting, and the Pusser’s Painkiller is the perfect addition. With Christmas drawing in, it’s always good to give customers that taste of sunshine.”
Be At One Group operates 26 bars around the country in London, Bath, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Reading.
