In memory of the German Hugo Richard Ensslin, who recorded his own and typical cocktails from New York around 1916 in his authentic book "Recipes for Mixed Drinks". He emigrated from Baden-Wuerttemberg, a wine region in Germany, to the USA in 1896 and was a respected member of the New York bar scene. Among other things, he was also the inventor of the real aviation cocktail, and in his book, where appropriate, he immortalised the best gin in the city at the time, "El Bart Gin", in some of the recipes because of its special taste. We therefore honour Hugo, who long before Harry Craddock published "The Savoy Cocktail Book", preserved for us the real hard cocktails that arrived in the bar scene.
