Get ready for London Chocolate Week at the Home of English Gin with Hayman’s True English Gin and Master Chocolatier William Curley! To get you ready for London Chocolate Week 2018, Hayman’s of London is presenting two unique evenings with Master Chocolatier William Curley, to showcase the perfect synergy between handmade chocolate and true English gin.
On Tuesday 9th and Thursday 11th of October, the Home of English Gin will be opening its doors in South London to gin and chocolate devotees alike for two interactive 90-minute gin and chocolate masterclasses. During these behind-the-scenes masterclasses, guests will gain a true insight into the craftsmanship that goes into hand-making both gin and chocolate.
Guests will be welcomed at 6.30pm with a True English Gin and Tonic and gin-inspired cake, before learning about the rich history of gin and chocolate, and the links between the two, in a hands-on exploration of Hayman’s ten botanicals and William Curley’s core chocolate ingredients. This will be followed by a demonstration and sampling of hand-made chocolate ganache and a tutored tasting of Hayman’s range of True English Gins, each paired with a matching William Curley chocolate, including a bespoke chocolate made with Hayman’s London Dry Gin. The evening will conclude with a unique gin cocktail, inspired by William Curley chocolates.
William Curley says: “I am very excited to be working with Hayman’s, they have a great history and a fantastic product. I’m a real traditionalist when it comes to techniques in food and drink but also look for innovative adaptations. One of my main beliefs is to only use fresh and natural ingredients and techniques in my products, so there is an obvious synergy between my chocolates and Hayman’s range of gins, as they use traditional techniques and a blend of ten natural botanicals to make their gin.”
Jonathan Gibson, Brand Director at Hayman’s of London, says: “We are delighted to be launching our gin and chocolate masterclasses with William Curley at the Home of English Gin. The traditional techniques and beautifully balanced flavour combinations of William’s creations are the perfect pairing for our range of classically balanced True English Gins. We are looking forward to introducing our guests to the world of gin and chocolate pairing through these masterclasses.”
