The team at White Lyan never fails to surprise. Constantly pushing boundaries and our perceptions of what drinks can be, every time you go in they’ve got something new to talk about. On our latest visit, that something was White Lyan ‘wine, sort of’, created by isolating flavours that you might find in wine; apricot, apple, cherry etc, and fermenting them together to create a liquid that tastes remarkably similar to wine buy with 70% less waste compared to buying from merchants.
To celebrate the launch of their new menu, White Lyan are hosting a pop-up, Lyan Cellars, from 11th-16th April at Lantana Café, Shoreditch. The pop-up wine bar and bottle shop will be offering all three of their ‘wines’; Spring Break White (apple flower, rhubarb tea and poached apricot), Whirlwind red (oaked cherry, lapsang and sage) and Guilty Pleasures Rosé (hibiscus, peppered watermelon and canned strawberry) by the glass or bottle alongside food by Doug McMaster from sustainable hero Silo, Brighton.
If you’re a hardcore White Lyan fan (guilty), there will also be the chance to buy bottles of cocktails from the White Lyan menu (beyond their usual retail offering) to takeaway, so stock-up while you can.
Lyan Cellars 11th – 16th April, 5.30pm – 10.30pm
Lantana Cafe Shoreditch, Unit 2, Oliver’s Yard, 55 City Road, London, EC1Y 1HQ
