"They had a bartender here, Kino, made the best Rum Cannonball I've ever tasted." – Steve Zissou. We don’t have a bartender named Kino, but we do have the best rum cannonball you’ll ever taste. Combining top shelf Australian spiced rum from Adelaide Hills Distillery, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a dash of agave syrup and a sour Morello cherry cannonball, we’d go as far to say this Rum Cannonball recipe will earn our CULT bartenders an honourary induction into team Zissou. If not, they can at least wear some red bennies on the night. Oh, and to really set the scene, local legend Emma Russack will be performing an array of acoustic David Bowie covers for you to chill on while you're sipping your cocktails in the CULT bar - now that's the life (aquatic).
TICKET INCLUDES: Admission to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, a Rum Cannonball on entry, pre-film acoustic David Bowie covers performed by Emma Russack and a post-film Wes Anderson inspired DJ set by Max Royce-Hampton.
ADELAIDE HILLS DISTILLERY - GUNNERY AUSTRALIAN SPICED RUM: A superb combination of Australian native and traditional botanicals. Cinnamon myrtle shines through on the nose with hints of chocolate, vanilla and citrus. The palate is savoury and refined with a lingering hazelnut finish. Slightly sweetened with bush honey and Australian demerara sugar.
THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU: Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew, Team Zissou, set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou’s partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline copilot (Owen Wilson), a pregnant journalist (Cate Blanchett), and Zissou’s estranged wife (Anjelica Huston). Wes Anderson has assembled an all-star cast that also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, Noah Taylor, Seu Jorge, and Bud Cort for this wildly original adventure-comedy.
