This drink was created by Jan-Phillip Fricke at Le Lion. in Hamburg in July 2017. As is sometimes the case, finding a name was not so easy, so on 17 July, a call went out via Facebook to suggest a suitable name. There were 40 suggestions, and on 20 July it was decided that the name Quincy, which refers to the quince in the drink, was the one proposed by Alexander Jacobsen. [1] [2] There is not much more we can tell you about this drink, except that it is really worth tasting!

At Le Lion, they use the Cuvée de l’Ocean from Trois Revieres, whereas we opted for the rhum agricole blanc from Neisson with an alcohol content of 50 vol%.

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
