Hosted at Beechwood Gardens in Sandton this August, The TANQUERAY® Secret Garden Party brought together some of the leading names in lifestyle and food media for a day of sophisticated fun starring South Africa’s WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year winner Domenico de Lorenzo.
The garden was in full bloom, reminiscent of the height of summer, as guests such as Palesa Mahlaba and Jerri Mokgofe relaxed to the sounds of lounge music while enjoying a cheeky dose of TANQUERAY® Gin in elegant surroundings.
De Lorenzo guided the 40 guests through a cocktail master class, allowing them to use the iconic flavours of TANQUERAY® to create their own, unique concoctions by giving contemporary twists to timeless classics such as the martini and gin fizz.
Guests wandered amid the garden’s beautiful flora to various “mix and make your own” installations to explore different recipes featuring the favourite gin of bartenders around the world.
“The Secret Garden Party was the perfect combination of stylish entertainment and fanciful fun where media representatives could network and experience first-hand the talent of South Africa’s WORLD CLASS winner, Domenico de Lorenzo. The party was a success on every level – from the stunning décor to the enthusiasm of the guests, TANQUERAY® has once again managed to deliver a timeless and unforgettable event,” said Avukile Mabombo, marketing manager for Brandhouse South Africa.
As the benchmark of the white spirits category and the only gin in the Hall of Fame at the San Francisco World Competition, the flavours of TANQUERAY® best shine through in a sophisticated martini cocktail – the perfect showpiece for a gin that is universally recognised by those in-the-know as the ultimate expression of quality.
