Tuesday 22 July – Friday 29 August 2014
This summer, iconic gin brand Bombay Sapphire has partnered with London’s newest ultra luxury hotel, Rosewood London, to transform its alfresco drinking and dining terrace, located in the grand courtyard into ‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’.
Inspired by Bombay Sapphire’s 10 exotic botanical ingredients and the journey taken to the ends of the earth to source them, the six week long pop-up experience will allow discerning drinkers to celebrate and creatively explore the regions travelled, resulting in the must-visit summer destination to enjoy ‘The Ultimate Gin & Tonic’. Fitting seamlessly with the elegant and distinctive design of Rosewood London, ‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’ promises an intriguing and conversational alfresco environment to discover and experience the exclusive cocktail menu.
Combining English heritage with contemporary sophistication, Rosewood London has the feel of a stylish London residence, more akin to a British manor house than a hotel and is filled to the brim with a quirky collection of curiosities. Guests enter via a gated carriageway, which leads to the peaceful inner courtyard, where the ‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’ will be situated. Bombay Sapphire’s journey of discovery will be brought to life in the re-design of the terrace that imitates the quality, detail and style of a bespoke yacht, showcasing an exclusively commissioned fabric design created by acclaimed illustrator, Jonathan Chadwick.
The intricate pattern tells the story of the exotic botanicals and regions of origin that lie behind this renowned gin.
‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’ will showcase a varied menu of cocktail twists based on ‘The Ultimate Gin & Tonic’, which will take guests on an exhilarating sensory journey through the Mediterranean, Africa, China and Indonesia. To celebrate this partnership, the ‘Sense of Place® Gin & Tonic Twist’ cocktail, which has been especially curated to honour the hotel’s philosophy of enhancing guests’ experiences by reflecting and celebrating the local
culture, history and location, will be revealed. The Bombay Sapphire ‘Sense of Place® Gin & Tonic Twist’ draws on the shared British locale of Rosewood London and the London dry gin for its inspiration as well as a selection of unexpected ingredients which give a nod to all things British. The experience will also feature a food-pairing menu conceived by Bjorn van der Horst, Rosewood London’s director of food, beverage and kitchens, which complements the selection of cocktails and can be enjoyed at the elegant terrace.
At specific times during the week, Bombay Sapphire brand ambassador Sean Ware will be on hand to take guests on an interactive journey through the world of Bombay Sapphire. Cocktail
lovers will learn the intricacies of the spirit and have the opportunity to touch, smell and taste the exotic botanicals that have been vapour infused to create the unparalleled taste of Bombay Sapphire Gin.
‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’ at Rosewood London will be open daily from 12pm until late, from Tuesday 22 July until Friday 29 August 2014. There will also be occasional live music that can be enjoyed at the terrace. ‘The Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic Terrace’ will also be available for private corporate and event hire.
