We’ll take our tea with two sugars… and a gin cocktail, please!
Harvey Nichols Birmingham has teamed up with Chase Distillery to offer a host of special gin-themed events this summer, including a temptingly tasty afternoon tea, a five-course dinner and a series of masterclasses.
Tempt your sweet-tooth with a gin-themed afternoon tea
Until the end of August you can raise your teacups to everyone’s favourite tipple with a limited-edition Chase Afternoon Tea. Served in the store’s stylish Brasserie, the themed treat has been created with the help of the famous gin company with flavours inspired by its most popular bottles.
Perfect for gin-thusiasts, the menu boasts all manner of tasty mini savouries including savoury cheesecake with onion and cardamom relish, Seville-marmalade and coriander pulled pork, pea hummus and potato rosti and smoked mackerel mousse.
Sweets treats include Bramley apple mousse with ginger, strawberries and elderflower cream and pink grapefruit pannacotta as well as scones with clotted cream and preserves.
Cocktails include the GB Clover Club (Chase GB Gin, lemon juice, rhubarb and raspberry syrup, and egg white) and the Rosemaund Royale (Chase Vodka, Chase Rhubarb & Bramley Apple Gin, ginger syrup and Harvey Nichols Champagne).
The Chase Afternoon Tea will be available Monday-Saturday, 1pm-4pm, and Sunday, 3pm-5pm, from June 3 until the end of August, priced at £32 per person.
Booking for the afternoon tea is essential. To reserve your table contact the hospitality team at Harvey Nichols Birmingham on 0121 616 6028 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shake it up with a Chase cocktail masterclass
And for those looking to learn more about Chase, Harvey Nichols Wine Specialist Siofra O’Brien will host three Saturday masterclasses over the coming months with a journey through the Distillery’s spirits, from its first, award-winning Chase vodka, through to its latest gin creation.

The Chase Masterclasses will take place in the Harvey Nichols Wine Shop on June 8, July 13 and August 17 at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. The sessions cost £20 per person.
