Cunard said: “Each historic and decorated story is infused into the cocktail experience with a modern menu design, illustration and superb new signature cocktails. These new and fresh additions to the renowned bar, found in prime locations on each of the Cunard Queens, highlight the incredible craftsmanship that has gone into each drink. Cunard’s talented onshore and on board bar teams have carefully mixed ingredients reflective of the personalities of these celebrated men."
One such example is the ‘Punch Romain à la Carpathia’, believed to be the last drink served on the Titanic. The cocktail is inspired by Commodore Sir Arthur Rostron who led the safe rescue of all survivors of Titanic features Advocaat as the signature ingredient.
Cunard worked with illustrator Lauren Crowe to bring to life these seven rejoiced men, creating intricate pencil illustrations of each of the knighted Commodores, inspired by their history and stories.
“Cunard has continued to receive recognition as a leader in world exploration within its more than 176-year history," said Richard Meadows, President, Cunard North America. “We are proud to recognize seven of the most decorated Cunard Commodores in Queen Mary 2’s iconic Commodore Club, who have led the Cunard fleets and flagships throughout the company’s illustrious past. Inspired by character and history, each cocktail has been thoughtfully created to honor their remarkable stories."
