The headlines when this bar opened in 2015 were all about the lack of labels behind the bar. There's no Tanqueray, no Grey Goose, no Johnnie Walker. Why settle for mere craft cocktails when you can start with craft spirits? After leading the bar crew at several well-known establishments, seasoned barman Narciso Bermejo started Macera, where he produces his own spirits using state-supplied grain alcohol that get macerated, mulled, mollified, and mediated with a variety of natural flavorings. These liquors then get mixed into inventive cocktails by Bermejo and his team.
