WEDNESDAY 13th APRIL – MONDAY 11TH JULY, 2016
This spring, the world’s number one premium gin, Bombay Sapphire, launches ‘The Bombay Sapphire Rooftop Retreat at Harvey Nichols’. Celebrating the artistry of the iconic Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic, visitors to the Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor Terrace between 13th April and 11th July are invited to discover their perfect gin & tonic serve as they experience the exquisite taste of Bombay Sapphire in an oasis in the middle of London. The project also sees Bombay Sapphire host a series of bespoke masterclasses, encouraging guests to forage in the Harvey Nichols Foodmarket to find their Ultimate Gin & Tonic twist ingredient.
Exploring the classic gin & tonic serve in an unexpected way, The Bombay Sapphire Rooftop Retreat features an alternative selection of unusual ingredients for guests to create their ideal combination. Including a range of tempting tonic waters such as elderflower, yuzu and lemongrass, and a number of different garnishes, guests can create their own gin & tonic to suit their palate. For those looking to take their drink to the next level, artisanal tonic syrups from Jack Rudy can be fused with soda water to create the perfect accompaniment.
In addition, Renaud de Bosredon, Bombay Sapphire brand ambassador and the team at Harvey Nichols have created a tempting menu of exclusive Ultimate Gin & Tonic twists available alongside. Inspired by the artful creation of Bombay Sapphire and its vapour infused 10 exotic botanicals, the selection of avant-garde cocktails feature ingredients from around the world such as goji berry liqueur, cubeb berries and passion fruit.
On Wednesday 11th and 25th May from 6.30pm, ‘Bombay Sapphire Artistry of the Ultimate Gin & Tonic masterclasses’ will provide guests with a more in-depth and hands on experience as they create their own bespoke gin & tonic. Hosted by Renaud de Bosredon, guests will learn the art of making the Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic before being invited to curate their very own work of art by using ingredients, picked by themselves from the renowned Foodmarket at Harvey Nichols. From fresh fruits and herbs to popping bobas and bitters, guests will be encouraged to try unusual ingredients to discover a new way of enjoying Bombay Sapphire which they can then recreate at home.
The Bombay Sapphire Rooftop Retreat at Harvey Nichols is open daily from 11am until 11pm. ‘Bombay Sapphire Artistry of the Ultimate Gin & Tonic masterclasses’ are priced at £35 per head and include a Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic on arrival and a bespoke Bombay Sapphire Ultimate Gin & Tonic twist with ingredients hand-selected by guests from the Harvey Nichols Foodmarket.
