    This winter, The Soho Hotel launches a new G & Tea, an Afternoon Tea inspired by The Botanist, the first and only dry gin from Scotland’s Inner Hebrides, hand-crafted and distilled on the Isle of Islay.

    The Botanist is an expression of its remote Scottish home, satin smooth with exquisite clarity. The artisanal gin is infused with 22 hand-foraged local botanicals that delicately enhance nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during distillation. An exploration of the island’s botanical heritage, The Botanist gin captures the sweetness from delicate apple mint, juniper and coriander with aniseed undertones, as well as lemon and orange peel. Delving deeper the flavours reveal a bouquet of flowers from Machir bay, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, water mint and summer meadows. 

    Complementing the botanicals found in the gin, a selection of sweet treats embrace winter flavours including chocolate roulade with chestnuts and almonds, spice cake with poached winter fruits and white chocolate mousse with ginger and orange. Enjoy delicious savoury items including turkey and pancetta rolls with pistachio and apricots or brie, cranberry and walnut lollipops as well as smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches.

    The afternoon tea is accompanied by a uniquely crafted G&T made with Peychaud’s aromatic bitters and topped with Fever Tree’s Mediterranean Tonic for a delicate and refreshingly light cocktail. Bringing the bar straight to the table, The Soho Hotel bar tenders will whisk up a Botanist cocktail from The Soho Gin Trolley. The G & Tea is served all day and can be taken in Refuel Bar & Restaurant or the charming drawing room.
