"ETHYL” - High Proof Haute Cuisine, is a 12 course cocktail tasting menu that blurs the lines between cocktails and food, showcasing high proof interpretations of avant-garde cuisine including edible cocktails, savory drinks and a few surprises. 

Here - drink is the star, the food an accompaniment and each course served as a performance with specific instruction on how to imbibe and enjoy. Presented in 12 courses, each of the drinks are inspired by haute cuisine and served as hors d’oeurves through mains, palate cleansers, onto a cheese course and finally dessert. Along the way, nibbles served to help balance the hedonism!

The experience is hosted by British celebrity bartender Angus Winchester (2012 Mixologist of the Year, Wine Enthusiast) who will take guests through each course while entertaining and educating on what is being imbibed.

Ethyl is concepted by the hotels head of food & beverage, Josef Grznar, partnering with head bartender Cara Gray, formerly of The Aviary (New York) and global gastronomic temple NOMA (Copenhagen)
