Elevating a trip to the movies to a new height, the world’s finest bourbon Woodford Reserve presents a cinematic experience with a taste of fine dining for a unique series of unmissable events in London and Manchester .
Woodford Reserve Whiskey has curated the ultimate immersive event for foodies, film fans and those who love a new and exciting experience. The multi-sensory event, A Cinematic Spectacle for the Senses, will host two imaginative and intimate cinema screenings alongside a perfectly paired tasting menu of small plates and cocktails, with each course surprising guests at different moments throughout the film to further bring the film scenes to life.
Featuring flavours inspired by each film to create rich and colourful moments for the senses, each cocktail will be curated by Woodford Reserve’s very own mixologist Joseph Hall and will explore the unique flavour profiles of the Kentucky bourbon. Alongside a tasting menu of sweet and savoury culinary delights, each complimenting cocktail will provide a never tasted before spectacle for the senses.
Kicking off at Hoxton’s The Curzon on Thursday 17th November, Londoner’s will have the chance to watch an early preview screening of The Menu (2022), starring The Queen’s Gambit’s Anya Taylor-Joy, along with Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult. Together with American dining concept Rita’s, based in Soho, Woodford Reserve will immerse guests in the twists and turns of the film, which is set at Fiennes’ private island restaurant Hawthorn, where achieving the perfect menu comes at a price.
From the capital to Manchester, on Saturday 18th February, A Cinematic Spectacle for the Senses will travel to 36-seat cinema Mini Cini at Ducie Street Warehouse to host three intimate screenings of Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022) with Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu and Jamie Lee Curtis. The story of an ageing Chinese immigrant swept up in an insane adventure, at pivotal moments, guests will be surprised with Woodford Reserve themed cocktails and paired culinary delights by TĀTĀ Eatery, known for its innovative Asian fusion cuisine and originally famous for inventing ‘ricewiches’.
Joseph Hall, Woodford Reserve UK Brand Ambassador says: “Woodford Reserve are so proud to present A Cinematic Spectacle for the Senses, an experience that is so much more than a whiskey tasting. We have placed each of the senses at the heart while curating an action-packed and amazing tasting menu where each sip and bite uses the science of flavour and creates truly unique moments.”
Tickets are £40pp and include a multi-course tasting menu, three paired cocktail serves and your seat at the screening. A vegan menu option will be available.
