Hotel du Vin has launched a new gin-inspired afternoon tea offering, partnering with Fever-Tree for the ‘adventurous’ spread.
The boutique hotel group’s new menu features a selection of hand-picked gins, each paired with its own tonic to bring something new to consumers, as well as a selection of tea infusions created especially by Twinings.
The full afternoon tea comes in at £20, with each menu featuring a quirky treat of rhubarb and custard doughnuts and homemade apple candy floss to round off the occasion.
A knickerbocker glory, lemon meringue pie, raspberry and dark chocolate teacakes plus scones and jam are among some of the more traditional staples.
Nick Halliday, COO at Hotel du Vin, “Everyone loves the traditional Afternoon Tea, we believe it is one of the finest meals, a perfect combination of sweet and savoury. We wanted to update this favourite to reflect the increasingly adventurous nature of British consumers that are seeking more unique food pairing experiences. We’re really excited about this offer, bringing together two of 2016s biggest trends, with the quality that Hotel du Vin is known for.”
