With Bond fever in full swing and Christmas party season approaching fast, we thought we share our thoughts on the best hangouts for enjoying the perfect Tanqueray No. TEN martini….
The Connaught – Quietly stirred, never shaken
Ever since it was first created in the 1850s, the Martini has become a legend in liquid. Renowned for its perfect martinis, the Connaught Bar has taken the ceremonial elements of this particular cocktail experience one step further with a deliciously designed Martini Trolley (seen in the lead image).
Where better to enjoy the classic than London’s new outpost of Javier de las Muelas’ legendary Barcelona bar of the same name. With a three-metre section of the bar dedicated to the iconic serve, all guests ordering a martini are issued with a stamped certificate, in honour of the bar’s tradition. Order a crisp and vibrant classic Dry Martini featuring Tanqueray No. TEN, and soak up the luxury contemporary surroundings of the Meliá White House Hotel, as you channel your inner Bond…
‘Created with the perfect martini in mind, premium gin Tanqueray No. TEN will thrill the senses whilst making for a delightful version of the iconic cocktail, famed for its sophistication and air of luxury’.
