May – July 2013
The Tasting Room in The Wine Shop at Harrods comes over all Gatsby-esque at this lavish pop-up devoted to the 1920s. Drop in throughout the day to learn how to make cocktails inspired by the era but given a 21st-century twist by Wayne Collins and the team at Mixxit, sample an array of bespoke cocktails from iconic spirits brands such as Hendrick’s Gin, Johnnie Walker Double Black, Courvoisier Exclusif VSOP Cognac, The Macallan Amber Malt Whisky and Stolichnaya Elit Vodka and soak up the sounds of the 1920s jazz band.
During shop opening times: Mon-Sat 10am-8pm; Sun 11.30am-6pm Tasting times vary, please call for details.
For five days only Belgraves’ Terrace will feature a living wall of edible flowers and an interactive cocktail station. Head mixologist Salvatore Maggio will muddle together palatable petals and botanical spirits to create inspired flowerful cocktails. Visitors to the Terrace, accessed through the hotel’s mezzanine bar, will be invited to join daily ‘Edible Flower Cocktail Classes’ and ‘Food & Flower Pairing Tutorials’. Complimentary cocktail recipe cards and edible flower seed packet giveaways will mean guests can re-create their favourite concoctions at home.
Access to Belgraves Edible Garden is complimentary but advance reservations are required.
