Experience of the Month: The Chesterfield Mayfair’s Gin & Tonic Experience

The Chesterfield Mayfair’s Gin & Tonic Experience

Steps away from Piccadilly, you'll find something special.

The venue is The Chesterfield, an exclusive hotel in Mayfair near to designer shopping and many of the city's most iconic attractions. The Regency style hotel feels comparable to a traditional private club: quiet, calm and efficient service blended with comfort and luxury.

It is part of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, a group of family-run, award-winning boutique hotels in five countries, some of which we've praised in the past.

The event is their unique Gin & Tonic Experience, which will banish any ideas you have about simple ice and a slice.

It's comparable to the idea of 'wine flights' – your opportunity to sample selected gins, ranging from citrus to floral, savoury to spiced, accompanied by a choice of tonic water.

There's theatre to this one.

We spent the afternoon being schooled in the flavours and origins of each drink. There were tales of experiments, of German brews with 47 extras, and other stories that added romance to the ritual.

This was not some stuffy, academic experience but one high on entertainment and stripped of any pretension. The staff here are experts and embrace a philosophy of 'no request is too large, no detail too small'.

The Chesterfield Mayfair

It's accurate to say that after the third lap round the menu, our tasting notes got sketchier so we began to look closer at the hotel itself.

It sits on Charles Street, which dates back to the English Civil War, and comprises several former townhouses, merged to make the current premises.

It now houses 94 guest rooms and 13 suites with 24-hour room service, high-speed wi-fi, fine fabrics and great décor.

There's an apiary too, providing all the hotel's honey, and making its bees among some of the world's most elegant travellers.

We were enraptured by The Chesterfield, a special place run by a brilliant team. That's why we have worked with them so you can enjoy it too by taking advantage of our unique deals.
