City of London Distillery takes over Harvey Nichols Terrace for Summer
I’ve had the pleasure of sampling three cocktails and a two course meal from the City of London Distillery specially created menu at Harvey Nichols’ 5th floor rooftop.
When I entered the venue, I was welcomed into the outdoor terrace with a beautiful view of Knightsbridge in a relaxed setting. Joe attentively sat down with us and explained the cocktails and food menu in detail. The Rhubarb 75 cocktails, containing rhubarb and rose gin, liqueur, lemon juice and champagne were first served with olives and almonds. We then ordered a grapefruit and pink Collins cocktail. The cocktails were all beautifully presented and the flavours were very refreshing. Then we ordered seabass and chicken teriyaki, which was fresh and delicious and well paired with the cocktails.
As the evening got darker, we began to get a little cold and the server, Alex, kindly placed us at a gorgeous table inside. For dessert, we ordered a brownie and a chocolate mousse cake, which was served with ice cream and candies. It was almost too pretty to eat! The chocolate mousse just melted in my mouth and had such a rich flavour.
At the end, I was amazingly surprised when they offered me a personalised bottle of gin with my name printed on it to take home – what a lovely gesture.
Don’t miss the exclusive opportunity to Make Your Own Gin Experience alongside a delicious three-course menu on Thursday 29th August and Friday 6th September 2019 only for £100.

As part of the experience, you’ll then taste some of the season’s finest produce as part of a delicious three-course menu prepared by Harvey Nichols chefs – all served to overlook the Knightsbridge rooftops.
