The Chesterfield Mayfair launches unique new bar offerings

Building on the success of The Chesterfield Mayfair’s popular Gin & Tonic Experience, the Regency style hotel is launching two brand new bar offerings.

On offer for the first time are an interactive and informative Whisky Nosing and Tasting Experience and a menu of exciting Molecular Cocktails.

Served in the Chesterfield’s Terrace Bar, a congenial and intimate bar with an exclusive club-like setting, the two exciting new drink menus have been carefully created by Chesterfield’s team of resident mixologists, to be enjoyed by both guests of the hotel and non-resident visitors to the bar.

The Whisky Nosing and Tasting Experience guides whisky enthusiasts through a journey into the art of the master distiller.

A choice of three different and specially curated menus showcase the range of fine whiskies available in the Terrace Bar collection.

The flights, each comprising four 15ml measures of whiskies, are served on a specially crafted tasting tray, made from the wood of original whisky barrels.

The Chesterfield’s expert explains the subtle intricacies and the history of each different whisky in an exploration for the senses.

The three Whisky Nosing and Tasting Experiences available are: Around the World; Scottish Adventure; and Macallan & Chocolate Pairing.

Macallan has one of the best reputations for quality malt whisky and now they have created an exclusive selection of chocolates for the Chesterfield Mayfair to match and enhance each of their whisky’s characteristics.

Molecular Cocktails

Embracing science and technology, the Chesterfield mixologists are also presenting new ways to experience much loved spirits with the introduction of a menu of seven Molecular Cocktails.

Adapting the techniques of molecular gastronomy, these cocktails utilise methods such as spherification (the process of shaping a liquid into spheres) and the creation of foams and airs to create new textures, flavour combinations, and striking presentations which turn the drinking experience into something really special.

A choice of cocktails, including Eton Mess, Match Point and an Old & New Era Amaretto Sour, are on offer.

For two to share, the Chesterfield mixologists have also created a Tipsy Tea, a delicious hot cocktail which dramatically infuses lavender, galangal, jasmine, lemon peel and lemon grass with water and Hendricks gin at the guests’ table; and a Healthy Pina Colada, a delicious and, thanks to the removal of the fat via a special technique, waistline-friendly combination of rum, pineapple and coconut cream.
