THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME
Magyar (Hungarian) raises a toast to a creative, diverse and unique culture. A drink showcasing celebrated produce and techniques cultivated by the people of Hungary for generations. Magyar is the epitome of what makes Hungary truly special to those that have had the pleasure to be immersed in what it is to be Hungarian. Even after visiting once or returning after many years it is a home away from home for many, with unique aromas and flavours, Magyar is an homage to those experiences, and raises a toast to those lucky enough to have experienced it.
