“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it…I can resist everything but temptation.” Oscar Wilde took the words right out of our mouths when we heard about the new bespoke menu at HIX-inspired by Absolut Elyx – the new single estate, handcrafted luxury vodka.
Absolut Elyx, recognised as the world’s best vodka awarded by the prestigious San Francisco Spirit Competition, and HIX, renowned for its unique take on British seasonal cuisine, are collaborating to create a series of bespoke dinners at the original HIX site, the Oyster and Chop House. Both are known for their use of the best quality ingredients and a meticulous eye for detail – to say we’re in for a treat really wouldn’t cut it.
With a menu boasting produce sourced from the finest single estates around the UK, each of the five courses are married to a specially created vodka cocktail to create the ideal combination for a truly indulgent experience. A taste of what you can expect? One offering: marinated Manx queenies with cucumber and wild chervil teamed Smoking in the Sea cocktail – smoked (that’s right) Absolut Elyx with lime and falemum, strained over cucumber and wild chervil iceberg. Refreshing, unique.
