The Artesian at The Langham hotel in London has won the vote as the World’s Best Bar at the Spirited Awards in New Orleans.

The famous London bar also managed to bag two further gongs for World’s Best Hotel Bar and International Bar Team of the Year, as well as one of the Artesian’s chief mixologists, Simone Caporale, who was crowned International Bartender of the Year.

The Artesian is known for its diverse cocktail menu, and the head bar tender is one of the most exciting bartenders in London who has become famous for unique recipes.

Every drink on the menu has a different story. The Selfie Compatible blends Zacapa rum with Floc de Goscogne, Verjus, beer and bitters, while Will of the Woods features Glenlivet whisky, larch, mushroom, citrus and honey.
