Whether you prefer the refinement of Hendrick's gin (such as that found in the Charlie Chaplin), or a sip that has more of a bite like Bulleit rye whiskey (try the Tom Selleck), true craft cocktails await you at South End's newest watering hole. Here you'll find hand press juicers churning out the freshest ingredients right before your eyes. 'Stache mixologist Ben Clousher, who has been tending bar for 13 years in and around Charlotte, is passionate about the craft that goes into the art of a manicured drink. In response to the imagination behind each handcrafted cocktail, he admits, "It's going to take a bit longer than your normal turnaround time, but just the same as you wouldn't want a 50-dollar steak at Del Frisco's to hit your table 10 seconds after you ordered it, you have to appreciate the kind of craftsmanship that is going on behind these drinks."
