Bartender Ryan ‘Mr Lyan’ Chetiyawardana is teaming up with Whitebox Cocktails, the ready-to-serve cocktail brand founded by bartenders, to release three of his best-known dishes in canned form.
The collaboration is part of Mr Lyan’s birthday celebrations, as 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of the bartender opening his first venue.
“My last ten years have been about bringing good people together with passion to achieve things that have never been done before. And we were only able to do this with our partner Whitebox Cocktails, who captured the integrity of the weird and wonderful recipes in a can.
“This is the first time some of our ingredients and cocktails have come to life outside of bars in single-serve form. I created them the way we recommend cocktails in bars, depending on the mood and the occasion and how the cocktail can enhance that,” Chetiyawardana said.
The limited edition Mr Lyan x Whitebox collection includes the Beeswax Old Fashioned, Stonewashed Cosmo and Bulletproof Espresso Martini, available to purchase from 15 November and stocked exclusively at Selfridges for an RRP of £6.50 per can. Only 2,000 cans of each serving were produced.
