Radisson Blu Plaza Sydney has partnered with Sydney distillery Archie Rose Distilling Co to offer guests a different approach to their High Tea– the Distiller’s High Tea.
The Distillers High Tea will feature beverages as the star and match each the flavour of the spirits with gourmet food offerings. The High Tea will showcase Archie Rose’s range- Original Vodka, Signature Dry Gin, and White Rye.
Vodka will be accompanied by a sweet paprika, spinach and feta roll, juniper infused smoked salmon on toast and a citrus tart; the Signature Dry Gin is to be paired with slow cooked veal pie, cucumber, dill and cream cheese sandwich and a strawberry tart; and the White Rye will be matched with a chicken curry puff, spiced cake and a Belgian double chocolate slice.
At the Distiller’s High Tea guests also will be able to try Radisson Blu’s very own gin, called ‘Out of the Blu’, which has been specially blended at the Archie Rose distillery and will also be served at the hotel’s Fax lobby bar. The gin was created in a “stirring” blending session at the Distillery by Radisson Blu’s General Manager Peter Tudehope, Director of Sales Terry Oomens and Head Chef Oswin Ribeiro. In collaboration with Archie Rose, Radisson Blu is the first hotel in Sydney to have created its own gin to offer guests.
“We are delighted to be able to offer our guests something truly unique – a new blend of gin that we have created just for them and the Distiller’s High Tea, showcasing spirits from Sydney’s most up-and-coming distillery,” said Tudehope.
As part of the partnership with Archie Rose, a series of tasting events also will be held at the hotel, including something “highly spirited” for Father’s Day on September 4.
The Distiller’s High Tea is currently running in the hotel’s Fax Bar until December 31 and costs $69 per person.
