VALENTINE'S DAY HOT GIN ROOF
The perfect Valentine's treat for gin lovers, join us for a special edition of Hot Gin Roof on 14th February. Enjoy a hot gin cocktail on the roof, before heading downstairs to Ham Yard Restaurant for a sumptuous four-course dinner with dishes such as, sea bass ceviche, slow cooked beef fillet and chocolate and cherry fondant. £75 per person.
To craft this year’s menu, Sipsmith Master Distiller Jared Brown, and Firmdale Hotel’s Group Mixologist, Eoin Kenny, delved back into the history books. They discovered that not only was gin first sipped hot before there was access to central heating, but also that historically these drinks were heated using a red hot ‘poker’ taken straight from the fire.
Those guests lucky enough to snap up tickets, will discover the wonders of hot gin history and a new way to enjoy the capitals favourite spirit. Cocktails will be ‘poked’ piping hot in front of guests using special blacksmith crafted pokers, otherwise known as loggerheads. Once plunged into the cocktail this historical bar tool will heat it instantly, caramelising the sugars and producing a wonderful aroma of ‘ginny’ magic.
All cocktails have been lovingly created using award-winning Sipsmith London Dry Gin, from the famous Hot Gin classics like the steaming Hot G&T and Singapore Sling (beautifully garnished with a barbequed pineapple slice), to a ‘poked’ porter based cocktail recipe from 1929, called the Hangman’s Blood; this line-up of delicious hot gin drinks will banish the post-Christmas blues of all ginthusiasts.
