Dining & Events

Berkeley Square London Dry Gin, named after Mayfair’s famous square, is considered to be the one of the world’s most luxurious gins.  The Master Distiller uses over 250 years of heritage and expertise at Britain’s oldest gin distillers, to hand-craft the gin in small batches in a copper pot still.  During the slow distillation, a unique combination of lavender, sage and basil is wrapped in a ‘bouquet garni’ and added to the purest of water.  The result is a gin of exceptional quality, smooth enough to sip neat and reputed to make the world’s best martini.

For thousands of years, tea enjoyed a glorious status in the lives of those fortunate enough to enjoy it. But, with the increasing industrialisation of the tea trade throughout the 20th century, its status was diminished as big brands compromised on quality for commercial gain. As the new millennium approached, Newby was founded with a mission to source, blend, preserve and serve the world’s finest teas, and revive the rich culture associated with tea’s golden era.

The best leaves from prime harvest seasons are selected, and Newby’s committed tea tasters create exquisite blends by trying thousands of cups. The quality of its blends is preserved in a state-of-the-art centre at the heart of the world’s finest tea-growing regions. Each tea is then sealed in multi-layered sachets to preserve its freshness and character.

This dedication to quality has led to Newby Teas winning more than 100 awards, and establishing a network of offices across the globe. Its teas are served in five star hotels, cultural institutions and Michelin-starred restaurants, and sold in high-profile retailers such as Harrods. Newby’s Silken Pyramids range can be found in Waitrose and online.

Floral Partner

When Kally Ellis set up McQueens in 1991, she had one aim in mind. “I wanted to sell simple, stylish flowers, beautifully presented, to the London market. And I knew people would love it.”

Kally drew on her business experience working in the marketing team of a large international French merchant bank. With a strong sense of colour and design, and a genuine passion for flowers, it has proved to be a winning combination, establishing McQueens as the premier name in the UK flower market – and beyond.

“It never fails to surprise me when I receive calls about our flowers from Hollywood and Japan,” says Kally. “It’s amazing to think that from a small shop in Clerkenwell, we’ve built a reputation for quality and innovation that’s known the world over. Yes, I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved.”

McQueens and McQueens Flower School is located in Bethnal Green, London. Their boutique store is located in Claridge’s Hotel.
