Channel a Bygone Era with The Sidecar Gin – The Westbury’s First Artisan Spirit
The Westbury launches its first exclusively distilled gin, created for the hotel’s iconic 1930s-style bar with a Limited Edition Collection in time for Christmas
Renowned for its unsurpassed cocktails, The Sidecar – The Westbury’s lavish 1930s-style bar, is delighted to announce the launch of its first artisan spirit, The Sidecar Gin – a Limited Edition batch of just 300 bottles crafted in collaboration with Stillgarden Distillery in Dublin.
This elegant and aromatic gin is a thoroughly modern spirit with a classic edge – an homage to a bygone era with a twist of decidedly Dublin character. It derives its unique flavour from wild lemon verbena, nettles and locally foraged herbs from Dublin parkland, balanced with spicy ginger, bitter orange and a fresh lift of juniper.
“We are delighted to launch our first limited edition gin today”, says Vincent O’Gorman, General Manager of The Westbury Hotel. “The Sidecar is regarded as an iconic location for cocktails in Dublin, and in partnership with Stillgarden Distillery in Dublin City, we have created an artisan spirit which represents the true character of The Sidecar, offering our guests the chance to bring a taste of the cocktail bar’s magic into their homes.”
With a very limited number of bottles available, this bespoke and coveted spirit is the ultimate gift for the gin lover in your life. Designed to reflect the Art Deco period and the distinctive style of the bar from which is takes its name, the bottle features simple clean lines alongside a label illustrated to complement the sketches distinctive of the period and included in The Sidecar’s beautiful hardback menu entitled ‘Of Tall Tales and Cocktails’.
A limited amount of The Sidecar Gin will be served in the cocktail bar upon request, featured in a special festive cocktail that is sure to become a new seasonal favourite with guests – The Sidecar Gin Signature G&T, €14, made with 1724 Tonic, orange, juniper and mint.
Located in Dublin’s Inchicore, Stillgarden Distillery is an independent distillery that creates spirits made from a selection of botanicals, ensuring each spirit is unique.
The Sidecar Gin is available to purchase for €50 or in an exclusive gift set with two exquisite balloon glasses at €90 in The Westbury Hotel, or through our online Christmas Shop alongside a carefully curated collection of luxury gifts providing delivery throughout Ireland.
