Virgin Atlantic announced today a wide range of exciting new initiatives taking place in the Virgin Clubhouse Heathrow for November and December.
Mo‘t & Chandon Vintage Champagne tastings
Joelle Marti-Baron, sommelier at London`s Great Eastern Hotel, will be guiding Virgin Atlantic passengers through the joys of Mo‘t & Chandon Vintage Champagnes from 1996, 1998 and 1990. In addition passengers will be able to join the Mo‘t & Chandon Vintage Club, which keeps them exclusively up to date with any developments with the vintages. Joelle will be at the Clubhouse between 12:30 and 19:30 on October 24, November 7, November 21, December 5 and December 12.
Krispy Kreme doughnuts
These cult brand US doughnuts will be available in the Clubhouse everyday from November 1. Krispy Kreme have just launched in the UK - these original glazed treats are only available in one other location in the UK where people have been queuing up to sample them.
A goldfish bowl filled with Thomas Pink cuff knots in Virgin Atlantic
colours will be in the Clubhouse from 1st November. Virgin Atlantic
passengers are invited to choose a pair with compliments from Thomas Pink
and will also be offered an exclusive unique service - they can order
shirts to be delivered to the Clubhouse or Revivals arrivals lounge direct
from the Thomas Pink store in Terminal 3. A range of designs will be
featured on a `shirt menu card` from which they can make their selection.
These new hand held pies from London’s leading gourmet pie producer ‘Square Pie’ will be available in the Clubhouse as part of the evening menu. The pies are hand made using only the finest ingredients, free range meats and have no artificial flavours or preservatives. The two Square Pies presently featuring on the menu are Steak and Mushroom or Tomato and Chick Pea.
From November free samples of Burberry Brit, a new fragrance for women, will be available in the Clubhouse. Passengers can also purchase the fragrance exclusively through Retail Therapy, Virgin Atlantic’s inflight shopping magazine, three weeks before it is offered on any other airline.
Tanqueray and Tanqueray No. Ten
Featuring in the Virgin Clubhouse Heathrow for November and December, there will be a Tanqueray cocktail service. This service will focus on two drinks, Tanqueray and Tonic and Tanqueray No. Ten Martinis, which are mixed with Tanqueray No.Ten, the award-winning gin that is only available in limited places in the UK. The cocktail servers are specially trained to mix the perfect G&T and Martinis. Extrovert and entertaining, they are knowledgeable about the product and the quadruple distillation process that gives it its exceptional quality. The service will be in the Clubhouse from14:00 to 21:00 Thursday to Monday.
The Sony Eye Toy is already available in the Gatwick Clubhouse and is soon to be installed in the Heathrow Clubhouse from October 28. It projects you into a PS2 game so you see your own face on the screen via a small camera.
