DR NATH’S FOGCUTTER
The Society Club in Soho have an impressive selection of literary themed cocktails, including Dr Nath’s Fogcutter: Rum, Cognac, Gin, Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, Orgeat, Sherry.
‘A friend of the club, writer Michael Nath’s books are booze-fuelled. We can’t help but feel the characters would enjoy this tipple as much as the author. “But what’s the point of trying not to drink? It’s so bloody aimless isn’t it?”‘ See the full list here.

‘This frequently surreal tale follows an academic’s entanglement with an oddball group, led by the Falstaffian Arthur Mountain, who share a strange extended tale stretching back to wartime Swansea via Doncaster and Edinburgh. Reminiscent of the work of Kurt Vonnegut, this is a really engaging and entertaining yarn with plenty of knowing literary allusions.’ Times Higher Education Supplement
‘An audacious, encyclopaedic tour of the often violent and always edgy relationship between the English, Welsh and Scottish nations.’
British Story is a Morning Star Book of the Year.
‘A wonderful exercise in novelistic virtuosity, strange and beautiful.’
