Botanist’s Martini
No. 2


Smoke and mirrors often steal the show at this captivating bar with a botanical bent, located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. It’s hard to resist the allure of mushroominfused rye, served on a nest of fresh moss in a misty terrarium. Or a mysterious elixir that appears to levitate. But don’t let the theatrics distract you from the talent, innovation and precision that turn every drink into a virtuoso performance. This high-tech laboratory creates extractions and infusions of uncommon clarity and delicacy. Food pairings, designed to match the cocktails, can be revelatory. And the service is always intensely engaging.
