Twenty concoctions will be offered using an extremely rare bottle of 50-year-old Jamaican rum at the Merchant Hotel.
The rum was barrelled in 1962 to celebrate Jamaica's independence.
The bar has already broken records with its luxurious drinks - in 2007, it won the Guinness World Record for the World's Most Expensive Cocktail when they served up a £750 Mai Tai.
The drink sold out in less than a year.
"The Merchant Hotel prides itself on offering an unmatched selection of high quality drinks," Chris Strong, manager of The Bar at The Merchant Hotel, said.
"And the launch of the Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Fashioned is further proof of our commitment to providing a unique offering to our discerning clientele.
"The quality of the Appleton Estate Jamaican Reserve is, we feel, unmatched with its unique flavours having developed in oak barrels for over 50 years under the watchful eyes of world-renowned master blender Joyce Spence."
The Bar has also won World's Best Bar, World's Best Drinks Selection and World's Best Cocktail Menu at the Tales of the Cocktail Festival in New Orleans.
