The Black Rock centre-piece is an 18ft, 185-year old oak tree trunk which also acts as an interactive cocktail ageing system, as well as that there is no bar. Black Rock doesn't have a written down menu. Instead, whiskies are organized in cabinets and categorized by flavour rather than region to help guests find a whisky that might be right for their palate, and if you see a whisky you know you like, then the whiskies that surround it will have similar flavors and you could end up with a new favorite whisky. However, if the proposition of choosing from 300+ whiskies is a little daunting, the staff are always at hand, ready with suggestions as to the whiskies that might be right for you.
You can get hand-selected whiskey delivered to your doorstep for £7.95 per month if you go for the annual subscription that Black Rock has to offer.
Price Range: £7 onwards
Location: 9 Christopher St, Finsbury, London EC2A 2BS, United Kingdom
