Welcoming their industry friends from across London’s top agencies including; Ten Group, Beyond Certainty, Capita Travel and Events, Chew and Grass Roots to the magnificent location under the iconic Gherkin.
To demonstrate the scope and breadth of the venue refresh guests were invited to partake in intricate gin and whiskey masterclasses following the new Emporium menu maps that are a prominent part of Bury Court’s new feel and will no doubt take centre stage at many events.
Alongside the masterclasses, which included a guided look at a collection of small-batch craft gins and whiskeys, attendees enjoyed a collection of tasters from the new mixed drinks menu – an inspired combination of exotic flavours from the empire that have lost favour on most modern cocktail lists with a relaxed, modern serve fitting with the clean but traditional look of the site. These include the Pegu Club, a cool blend of Cointreau, Gin, Lime, Orange and Bitters and the Regent’s Punch, a suitably punchy combination of Courvoisier VS, Appleton UX, Orange Curacao, Ceylon Arrack, Lemon, Orange, Pineapple-green tea syrup and Cava. Guests also enjoyed canapés from a collection of menu favourites giving a sense of the breadth of offering available at the venue.
Head of Corporate Sales, Georgina Coleman, said of the evening ‘we are extremely excited to be previewing the venue as we have had to stay relatively tight lipped about it until now. It is so wonderful to have this incredible location looking fresh, clean and ready for action and the response this evening to the look and feel as well as the menu reinforces my conviction that this is going to be a strong favourite for full hires and intimate events across the year. They have really managed to do something a bit different here, keeping the essence of Balls Brother’s whilst incorporating all of the elements that make it a must have.’
