Archie Rose Distillery and The Tilbury Hotel have joined forces to come up with a brand new gin. It's called — wait for it — The Tilbury, and to celebrate the hotel is inviting you to sample the very first batch at a one-off sit-down gin dinner.
For 85 bucks, you'll score three courses alongside three matching cocktails. So it's a pretty sweet deal — especially given that head chef James Wallis, who's Michelin accredited, will be whipping up the dishes. You'll be kicking off with 'textures of spring' (bloody Mary, gem hearts, roasted capsicum, raw carrot, basil gel, confit tomatoes), which will be followed by a sea trout ceviche with horseradish mousse, wild rice, saffron crisps and coriander gel, or confit pork belly with date, Earl Grey, pak choi and soy caramel. And, to finish, take your pick of pear and almond tart, or fig and lemon ice cream. Meanwhile, Archie Rose's Lachlan Beange will be designing the gin cocktails around the dishes.
Arrive early or hang around afterwards to spend some time on The Tilbury's Luchetti Krelle-designed deck, which has just reopened for spring.
