Signing the Book of Condolence for Queen Elizabeth ll in London

I was so happy to sign the Book of Condolence for Queen Elizabeth ll last night at The Ritz Hotel, London. The Ritz set-up a stunning private area for the signing not far from the front entrance.  This was very emotional for me and a great honour to sign it.  I was born in Northern Ireland, my mother, father, aunts, cousins, and other family members are all British monarchists, with a strong love of their long history and tradition.

I am so proud to say that my children and their children will be able to grow up in this world knowing what the Queen has accomplished throughout her 70-year reign, her many legacies, including ushering the monarchy into the 21st century – she was the spirit and the soul of the country.

The Queen was an inspiration to us all for her devoted loyalty and dignity, may all her legacies live on!

67 Pall Mall Sought-After Sommeliers’ 2021 Advent Calendar

67 Pall Mall’s expert sommelier team have assembled a memorable wine advent calendar for counting down the festive season, featuring 24 iconic 75ml bottles of wines.

This very special advent calendar is described as:

“Our sommelier team have united to create an advent calendar perfect for the Christmas countdown. Experience the holiday season in true 67 Pall Mall style with 24 iconic wines chosen by your favourite’s sommeliers, guided by Ronan Sayburn MS. Expect stand out wines to put you in the Christmas spirit.”

“Housed in a carefully designed box replicating the exterior of the Club, Members will open a door a day to reveal miniature glass bottles containing 75ml pours. Each bottle’s label is furnished with a QR code, which once scanned using the camera app on your phone will take you to a video where one of our team Members will guide a tasting of what is in your glass.”

67 Pall Mall advises to order today (November 15) to ensure you receive your wine advent calendar so you can open your first window December 1!

It is also worth noting that the deadline for orders delivered to Europe is Monday 1st November, and for the UK, Monday 15th November to guarantee arrival before the first window is opened.  Perhaps you can ask them to fast-track the order.

“Bollinger 007 Bar” Launches in London’s Historic Burlington Arcade

 

 

Maison Bollinger has recently opened “Bollinger 007 Bar” in the Burlington Arcade – Mayfair to coincide with the much-anticipated release of Universal Pictures “No Time To Die”.

The new Bollinger 007 Bar will be the world’s first Bollinger 007 Champagne bar and the only standalone branded bar in London. Spread across two floors, the venue promises visitors the “ultimate James Bond experience”, complete with a replica model Aston Martin DB5.

The Bollinger Bar is located on the ground floor, is luxuriously decorated with gold leaf walls, bespoke brass and marble furniture with plush seating.

The bar will also showcase exclusive products such as The Bollinger 007 Limited Edition Millésimé 2011 – a vintage dedicated to 007 created by the House to mark the release of the upcoming film “No Time To Die.” The ‘atypical’ 2011 vintage, inspired the Cellar Master to produce a unique Champagne created entirely from Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru village of Aÿ, where the House was first established in 1829. This is the first time that both the vintage and village have been used exclusively by Bollinger to make a dedicated wine.

Champagne Bollinger has also produced a limited-edition gift box bringing together Bollinger’s signature Special Cuvée with two other icons, the Aston Martin DB5 and Bond himself.

Covent Garden launches a three-week Rosé Festival

Rosé season is here and to celebrate all things pink, Covent Garden [London] is hosting its first-ever three-week rosé festival which runs from May 17th to 6th June 6th.

Over 20 restaurants participating with over 30 varieties of rosé wine, rosé cocktails, rosé themed menus, as well as 9 pop-ups from Mirabeau, Amie Wine, HUN Wine, Dirty Martini, Chez Antoinette x AIX-en-Provence, Magners, The Bubble Bros, Fiona Fleur and The Oystermen x Pol Roger which will be taking over Covent Garden’s Piazza.

With the return of indoor dining, restaurants across Covent Garden will also reopen over 2,500 additional dining spots. The area will remain at the heart of outdoor dining with the botanical pocket garden seating area on the East Piazza remaining open for takeaway drinking and dining.

 

For visitors wanting to join in the blush celebrations but preferring non-alcoholic options Ladurée will host a rosé-inspired afternoon tea, Shake Shack will offer a limited-edition cherry blossom pink shake, Amorino will be serving their very instagramable rose-shaped ice-creams in a multitude of flavours and Bubble Wrap will sell an exclusive Covent Garden Rosé and Strawberry Blossom combo. For tea connoisseurs, Whittard and Mariage Freres will also be offering over 40 rose blend teas.

I would say it’s time for a glass of rosé and some retail therapy!
