Glass Room, Bateaux London’s marvellous restaurant and bar on the Thames, has teamed up with award-winning Italian dry gin brand, VII Hills, to bring you the capital’s only Floating Negroni Bar in time for Negroni Week. Celebrating the centenary of Italy’s most famed aperitif, the Glass Room x VII Hills Floating Negroni Bar will pop up for one month, kicking off on 24th June.
Hop on board Glass Room docked at Embankment Pier for an unrivalled on-the-water experience. Soak up 360-degree views of London’s famous landmarks with an authentic Negroni in hand available when you pre-book a lunch, afternoon tea or dinner experience only. Dining experiences start from £39 for a 1 hour and 30-minute lunch sail.
VII Hills’ talented brand ambassador Gabriele Manfredi has created four VII Hills Negronis exclusively for Glass Room, perfect for sipping on a sunset sail down the Thames. For a Negroni with added oomph, there’s the Bateaux Signature Barrel-Aged Negroni (£8) made with VII Hills, Martini Riserva Speciale Rubino and Campari. The Fiori De Pesco (£10) is a peachy concoction made with VII Hills, peach liqueur, Martini Riserva Speciale Rubino and Campari whilst the Negroni All’arancia (£10) is a mix of VII Hills, Martini Bianco, Campari and Cointreau. Completing the list is the classic Negroni Italiano, made the traditional way with equal parts of VII Hills, Martini Rosso and Campari (£9).
Paying homage to Italy in all its essence, VII Hills uniquely combines seven botanicals found within the hills that surround Rome including Italian juniper, pomegranate, celery, artichoke, blood orange, rosehip and Roman chamomile. Handcrafted by master distillers who use centuries-old methods, the result is a balanced libation with sweet, bitter and blood orange notes that complement the flavours of Italy’s iconic red bittersweet aperitif. The perfect gin for the perfect Italian Negroni.
*The VII Hills Negroni menu is only available to those who book a lunch, dinner or afternoon tea package aboard the Glass Room in advance. Visit: https://www.bateauxlondon.com/restaurants/glass-roomfor further details.
