Drinks and Snacks

At Red John you can drink almost everything your heart desires. Start your day off with a nice cup of coffee or tea from our local suppliers cafefaro Biel and teebox (former Gwürz-Zouber Solothurn), or just enjoy some refreshing fruit juices or soft drinks before you go over to have an sparkling aperitif on our sun-flooded patio next to the Aare river. Yes, of course we do also serve some selected wines and prosecco but our true strength lies within our broad range of beer and whiskey. To warm you up during the cold days we offer you also some hot drinks laced or not and as the night falls we have a fully equipped bar that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of long drinks, cocktails and shots.

Michter's US*1 American Whiskey

Very fruity and sweet, this whiskey from Michter's positively drips with toffee and butterscotch, enlivened by toasty notes and a hint of vanilla and dried fruit. Technically not a bourbon due to its ageing in 'bourbon-soaked' barrels as opposed to new oak.
