Eau De Vie is decorated with antiques and trinkets bringing about its own quirkiness. It is a typical Melbourne hipster watering hole. This place specialises in cocktails and whisky – of which they have lots! So many in fact that the drinks menu is about 20 odd pages. And when you’ve got great company and the cocktails that are sharp and zingy, who cares what they’re called!
You can start off in the ancient orients – China and Japan – with a very fresh and light starter: scotch whisky, plum wine, jasmine green tea with a jasmine tea fog. This is paired with an elegant chawanmushi, garden herbs, puffed rice dish served in a mushroom broth. After that, you can move onto the Himalayas with the Spiritualist – a vodka, pink peppercorn infused white wine and tomato water poured into in a ceramic vessel. This is set on a wooden bamboo box that contained the embers of a couple of gently burning rosemary twigs which release such a beautiful and supernal aroma into the room. They then pair this rather earthy drink with a plate of rainbow trout, chai soil, chickpea purée and wilted bok choy – a great choice to tone down this rather bold beverage. Simple beautiful!
