A Chase On The Rocks

25 June 2012

Recently I was invited to attend the launch of a fabulously British summer at Harvey Nichols in collaboration with Chase Vodka.

From the rolling hills of Herefordshire, the Chase Distillery came to Knightsbridge and re-styled the terrace bar at Harvey Nics; every nook and cranny screamed traditional English countryside. Certainly the bumpkin inside me felt very at home, with old wood framing pictures of the Hereford countryside and the distillery. 

We sipped delicious creations by the talented HN fifth floor bar manager Dominic Jacobs, a few that were just far too addictive for a Tuesday night included Gooseflower Fizz (Chase Vodka combined with Chase Elderflower Liqueur, Harvey Nichols Gooseberry Jam, lemon and honey topped with English Sparkling Wine) which went so well with the delicious nibbles; my foody weak spot - homemade mini pork pies!

The utterly divine and positively healthy; Marmalade Root Martini (Chase Marmalade Vodka shaken with fresh carrot juice, fresh parsley and lemon, with a dash of honey) totally one of your five a day darling!!

A fabulous evening hosted by the lovely James Chase, this was certainly the kind of launch party where you stayed no matter how long and tried every single cocktail! 

There is something rather special about The Chase Distillery, maybe because it's steeped in its English heritage, so much so this runs through to the the taste of the vodka and gin, cocktails do actually taste mouthwateringly different! A couple of my favourite places that make the most amazing Chase cocktails include the members club Quo Vadis in Soho and The Corinthia Hotel, but I have to admit Dominic's take a lot to beat and are the perfect end to a hard day of retail therapy!
