Vodka often isn’t considered too much of a civilised drink, more like the failsafe on a night out to give you a really good time but Gaucho are going to change that with their 7 day celebration of the King of Spirits. Beginning on Thursday 8th September, steak supremos Gaucho will welcome ultimate gin brands including Grey Goose and Belvedere across 7 of their restaurants for one-off tastings and masterclasses – it’s the third year of their ‘7 Days’ events, following on from American whiskey last year and gin in 2014.
The 2016 vodka series kicks off in Manchester on the 8th and then takes place every day for 7 days. Friday 9th will see a Tito Texan vodka and food pairing masterclass at South Kensington’s Bar Galante, then it’s over to Stolichnaya on the 10th and 11th – Saturday at Gaucho Canary will be held on the riverside terrace for a complimentary Stolichnaya Elit summer cocktail masterclass whilst on Sunday, Piccadilly will be shaking up bespoke Bloody Mary’s using Stolichnaya Gold, before a two or three course Bloody Mary roast dinner.
On Monday 12th September, guests will get to take part in a complimentary tasting of the New York spirit, Aylesbury Vodka, followed by a Moscow Mule at Gaucho Smithfield. For the penultimate event, it’s over to the Tower Bridge restaurant for Beluga Noble Russian Vodka cocktails and Argentine ceviche and red meat pairing before the finale at Gaucho Broadgate on Wednesday 14th September. The final night is a ‘Viva la Martini Dinner’ with Grey Goose – a three course dinner with paired cocktails and a talk from Grey Goose’s UK Brand Ambassador to enlighten guests on the evolution of the martini. Seven days, seven great events. Pick wisely.
7 Days of Vodka at Gaucho takes place from Thursday 8th – Wednesday 14th September. Dates, times and prices vary – see online for details and to reserve your place.
