is a bit about Bartanica:
Bartanica is the mingling of the modern bar and healing knowledge. True healing knowledge originates in botany, the study of botanicals, and medicine.
Herbs and spices have long been additives to spirits as well as appreciated for their various rejuvenating effects. It was not long
ago that those working behind the bar dispensed not only drinks that tasted good, but also those with healing tonic properties.
The modern bar uses an array of botanicals long known to have therapeutic properties, but whose healthful benefits are seldom understood and rarely requested. Bartanica’s goal is to increase general knowledge and interest in herbs using the observations of Ayurveda as a guide.
Ayurveda is the predominant medical system in India. It is a holistic approach to medicine that focuses on observation and
nutrition. All aspects of the diet have implications for health, including cocktails.
Sharon Floyd created Bartanica to bring an herbal reference into the modern bar. With a focus on the healing arts, she hopes to unite the fascinating and diverse worlds of plants and spirits. She developed the CraftLab
workshops in order to share her knowledge and philosophy.
You can sample Sharon’s award-winning mixology from the cocktail menu at Iris
, a charming boutique bar in the Bienville House Hotel
Menu coming soon so stay tuned!!
