Our ovens such as the cooking centers from Rational are manufactured with such sophistication to take the hassle out of cooking food to perfection. It determines cooking time based on weight of the load, load quantity and the consistency of the food, also taking into consideration your usual cooking timings on how other produce is cooked, to make sure the end result is nothing less than perfect!



Our selection of refrigerators and cooling machines are fitted with much more powerful compressors and fans than a domestic fridge. This means your produce will stay fresh and flavors preserved despite it being opened and shut more frequently, avoiding food being spoiled.

BRAND NEW: ODK Syrups and Mixers

We're very excited to be launching a BRAND NEW line of purees, syrups and creams, perfect for any bar, cocktail or mixologist.

The brand new range from ODK has been developed by bartenders for bartenders in Italy, engulfing the Italian passion for food and drink! Offering not only great taste from the highest quality, fresh ingredients, the ODK range is also extremely easy to use and generates almost zero wastage.

The specially patented bottle means that the syrups, purees and creams do not need to be decantered, with the ability to be squeezed and measured directly from the bottle, the push top lid also means minimisation of fruit flies around your bar! The highly concentrated formulas provide an unbeatable depth of flavour to each puree, syrup and cream, meaning that less is needed per drink, ultimately saving you stock and money!


The Fruit Puree Line
The fruit puree line offers aside variety of fruity flavours, made from only the freshest ingredients; from handpicked strawberries from Spain and Poland, to bananas grown in their native Ecuadorian soil. The unique pasteurisation process that ODK use means that all of their fruit purees have an unbeatable shelf life while maintaining the highest quality flavour for all of your cocktails.

The Syrup Line
The ODK syrup line offers probably the best syrups on the market, featuring cocktail staples such as the White Sugar and Vanilla syrup, or something to add a little passazz to your drinks, like the Grenadine syrup! Whatever flavour you go for these syrups are a must behind any bar or mixologists cocktail kits.All of the syrups are highly concentrated in flavour and made from the highest quality, fresh ingredients and natural flavourings where possible. The intense flavour means you rarely need more than 20ml per cocktail, so your syrups can last a decent amount of time before they need replacing - a cost effective, delicious cocktail solution... Hoorah!


The Cream Line
Indulge your drinks in a little creamy deliciousness with ODK's flavoured creams. Add a touch of heaven to hot drinks, coffees, frappuccinos and cocktails, or even as a side to desserts with the Chocolate or Pistachio cream lines we have on offer! Packed full of flavour for a vibrant taste, the creams make the preparation of drinks quick and easy with the specially patented bottle.

HotSeat with ThreeSixSix: Aromas, Aesthetics and Atmosphere

We sat down with Eduardo, the co-founder of ThreeSixSix alongside his brother Andres. Their bars have been going from strength to strength over the past 10 years and it’s not hard to see why! Their strong design aesthetic and attention to detail shows that bartending is a real art form.

‘Building an atmosphere is very important from music, aesthetic, drinks and customer service it’s very important to have attention to detail. I’m a perfectionist what can I say.’


Interiors from ThreeSixSix - St Johns Hill

Where did you get your experience from?
I grew up in Mexico so a lot of my early experiences within the cocktail industry started off there, I lived in a city called Santa Paulo - the city of eternal sunshine - and there was a huge bar culture there. My brother and I later decided to move to London to work which was a huge change from Mexico! Destiny took us apart and we both went down separate routes, I went into more independent local businesses and my brother went down the more corporate route working for companies like J Sheekey. After a few years we decided to take the plunge and open Bar ThreeSixSix.


What do you think are the most important qualities to have in a cocktail bar?
Atmosphere and aesthetics are a major part of any cocktail bar - they effect the way you drink, how you enjoy it and behave around it. It’s important to make sure you have the right lighting and colour palette for a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere. It’s also important to change things up so there’s something new to intrigue your customers, but with eclectic style you have to make sure that items work within the space together.

What inspires your cocktail creations? 
Everything inspires me; from people to national dishes, scents, items and objects I find in charity shops, anything can inspire a cocktail.

Head down to the Battersea or Earlsfield branch to taste Eduardo & Andres' creations

What’s the most important thing about running a cocktail bar?
Staff! Staff are the most important thing about any cocktail bar, they’re like family. Also customer service, we have to remember that we’re here for the customer not the other way round. I think it’s also important to remember that we’re making drinks for our customers not ourselves. Also music, atmosphere and attention to detail are very important qualities.

'Staff are the most important thing about any cocktail bar'

What do you think are the key trends in the cocktail industry at the moment?
Using lots of vegetables, organic liquors and products. We actually have a totally organic section on the menu which we’ve been developing over the past few years. Everything is organic down to the raw fruit and vegetables to the liquors. Also non-alcoholic cocktails are becoming increasingly popular as customers mind-sets are changing about the way they view their health.


Be sure to check out their amazing organic, guilt-free cocktails


What cocktails  have been most popular?
Our most popular cocktails are the Old Fashioned, Smokey old fashioned and Negroni’s. I think it’s important to start with the basics and develop them, for example our Negroni’s have been developed with flavours, ingredients and textures from all over the world that compliment each other, to create an exceptional taste. Also our Calahua cocktail, which is made purely from an infusion of coconut with latin and Mexican vibes, which transports you straight to the beach.

What cocktail trends do you see becoming popular in the next few months?
Vermouths are becoming increasingly popular, also going back to basics and fully exploring every flavor combination and the ingredients inside each completely. Smoked and experimental cocktails are becoming a big trend too, with multi-sensory qualities. 


'going back to basics & fully exploring every flavor combination'

What’s your favourite cocktail to make?
The Smokey Old Fashioned and not just because it’s my favourite to drink too! This cocktail is simple to make, but because it’s so simple you have to make sure that each component is perfect, and by adding the smoke into the mix it creates an aroma which transports me back to my childhood in Mexico. I think it’s important to try and transport your customers somewhere, back to childhood or different experiences. This is why a lot of the bitters we make in house are not necessarily for taste but for creating aroma.


So what’s next for ThreeSixSix?
Well we’re concentrating on our new cocktail menu for spring including some very exciting cocktails reworking chocolate. We also have more events, promotions and entertainment booked in for the Summer. And my brother has been busy developing new dishes for our in house small plates and bar snacks which we’re hoping to launch this month, using fresh local produce but putting our own unique twist on it.


Tried & tested! We definitely recommend their Charcuterie boards & sharing platters!

Special thanks to Eduardo & Andres de la Mora
