Last week, we celebrated with Johnnie Walker on their world class whisky and the new Blue Label Room at The Stables Sydney.
We were invited to step inside the beautiful and luxurious renovated Blue Label Room, which includes a lounge area and an outdoor bar. The sophisticated space portrays the history, the culture and the essence of the Johnnie Walker brand, and it includes a whisky constellation, a variety of Johnnie Walker collectibles, Alexander Walker’s quality statement and more.
This intimate event held fifty guests and was hosted by whisky expert and MasterChef Australia 2014 contestant, Sean Baxter, who is the National Brand Ambassador for Diageo Reserve Whisky.
Greeted and welcomed into the private members only venue of the Johnnie Walker Blue Label Room, we were served Johnnie Walker ‘Blue Silk’ Old Fashioned cocktails. The ‘Blue Silk’ Old Fashioned is a cocktail reminiscent of the prestige and decadence associated with Johnnie Walker Blue Label. A combination of salted caramel syrup, maple syrup and a smoked Apricot Bitters created by Mr. Bitters in Melbourne. The drink is soft and silken, hence the name, and beautifully highlights the smoke and peated oiliness found in Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
Sean Baxter has been working with whisky for over twelve years, both across the bar and as a professional trainer. Sean shared his knowledge with us through an interactive whisky tasting demonstration. Sean will feature on going tastings at the Blue Label Room for members, guests and special events. Sean’s love was portrayed during the evening through the gourmet canapés menu curated by Sean and the team at The Stables Sydney.
Whisky matched dishes such as shucked Oysters with a shallot and whisky vinaigrette; Tartar of white fish, chilli, finger lime and fennel pollen; Steak on a Stick – BBQ rib eye cubes; Stuffed Swiss Brown mushrooms; Braised Pork Belly, fennel slaw and mustard fruits; and to satisfy the sweet tooth of the guests, lamington and brownie desserts were shared around the venue.
The Johnnie Walker Blue Label Room at The Stables Sydney is the ultimate place to hold business, to chill, and enjoy special events in a classy and sophisticated venue.
