Two giants of Northern Ireland’s tourism and hospitality industry, Hastings Hotels and Jawbox Gin, have joined forces to unveil the world’s largest bottle of gin and launch ‘G & Tea‘, an exclusive afternoon tea with a twist, in Ireland’s tallest cocktail bar, The Observatory at the Grand Central Hotel, Belfast.
At 73cm tall, the Jawbox Giant’s Edition holds almost 46 standard bottles of gin, weighs more than 50kg and has a volume of 32 Litres serving 915 measures. It takes its name and inspiration from Jonathan Swift’s well-known tale, Gulliver’s Travels, in which the writer was said to have been inspired by the sight of the Belfast Hills, which he felt resembled a sleeping giant safeguarding the city.
A delectable G & Tea has been created to celebrate the occasion with a selection of delicate sandwiches, scones and sweet treats inspired by the botanicals and flavours of Jawbox Gin.
Guests can also sit back, relax and take in the stunning views overlooking the Belfast Hills and beyond whilst enjoying the new Jonathan’s Twist Cocktail.
The Jawbox G & Tea is served daily from 1pm – 5pm and is priced £40 or £50 to include the exclusive Jonathan’s Twist Cocktail. To book call 028 9023 1066 or go to www.grandcentralhotelbelfast.com for further information.
