Belvedere Vodka VIP Dinner saw numerous guests who gathered last night, July 6th, on the stunning rooftop of Dublin’s Woollen Mills where they were treated to an exclusive preview of Belvedere Vodka‘s new Spritz Collection.
Hosted by Belvedere Vodka Global Education and Training Manager Alice Farquhar, guests were invited to ‘Relearn Natural’ as they sampled five refreshing drinks from the collection, expertly paired with dishes by Jan Bartek, sous chef at The Woollen Mills.
In attendance to the Belvedere Vodka VIP Dinner were designers Natalie B Coleman and Helen Steele, jewellery designer, Chupi Sweetman and fashion designer and style commentator, Sonya Lennon. Also in attendance were lifestyle bloggers Louise Cooney and Lauren Arthurs.
On arrival, guests enjoyed the first refreshing Spritz of the evening, the Belvedere Thyme Spritz before Alice Farquhar guided them through the new collection and the ethos of ‘Relearn Natural‘. Chef Jan Bartek introduced the menu for the evening and outlined the inspiration behind the pairings and the importance of the locally sourced ingredients for the dishes.
Guests were treated to a Belvedere Vodka marinated beetroot gravlax, which was infused with Belvedere Grapefruit smoke, billowing out from under a cover. This fresh and colourful dish paired perfectly with the Belvedere Signature Spritz of natural grapefruit and thyme.
A palette cleanser of Belvedere Vodka Bloody Mary sorbet was served with the Belvedere Cucumber Spritz, before a mouth-watering main course of pork belly with Belvedere Vodka, star anise and burned orange gravy, spring cabbage and fondant potato, which was accompanied by the Belvedere Spiced Spritz.
Ending on a sweet note, a delicious Belvedere Vodka marinated strawberry and gooseberry Eton Mess was served alongside a refreshing Belvedere Citrus Spritz.
