St Martins Lane hotel is offering a one-off cocktail collaboration with creative, London based niche perfumers, Miller Harris. For two months from the 27th August, the hotel’s late-night speakeasy, Blind Spot, will be serving a bespoke cocktail menu based on the latest Miller Harris fragrances – Blousy, Brighton Rock and DANCE Amongst The Lace. Just like the perfumes, the cocktails will offer guests a sensory experience designed to transport them on a journey from a 1930’s literary classic to modern day London.
As a member of The House Of Originals, St Martins Lane prides itself on being creative and forward thinking with an undeniable originality. This can be seen in the Miller Harris cocktail menu at Blind Spot, which embodies the perfumery’s innovative style of telling contemporary urban stories and memories in a stimulating way, that can’t be expressed by words. Based on the Miller Harris scents, the Blousy cocktail, containing Pink Pepper gin, crème de mûre and passion fruit, and the Brighton Rock cocktail, containing Cenote Blanco tequila, violet liqueur and elderflower cordial, are inspired by Graham Greene’s classic novel, Brighton Rock, and the charismatic 1930s in which it is set. Taking a more modern approach, the DANCE Amongst The Lace cocktail combines Stoli Elit chamomile vodka, Gabriel Boudier apricot brandy, vanilla and grapefruit bitters. Influenced by London’s beautiful green spaces, it allows guests to explore how nature and the city co-exist in an urban era.
The cocktails are priced at £13 each and are available exclusively at Blind Spot until the 27th October. For guests who would like a taster of each drink, a miniature flight of all three Miller Harris cocktails is available for £22.
In addition to the cocktail menu at Blind Spot, St Martins Lane are offering a full Miller Harris experience to scent-inspired hotel guests. Priced from £344, this package, ‘Scent-ral London’, will include bed and breakfast at St Martins Lane, a Miller Harris cocktail flight, and a bottle of the guest’s preferred fragrance, based on their scent profiling, with a choice from Blousy (100ml), Brighton Rock (100ml) or DANCE Amongst The Lace (50ml). Guests will also undertake the exclusive scent profiling at the Miller Harris shop on Monmouth Street, a convenient ten-minute walk from the hotel.
