The inaugural Hoteliers’ Hotels Top 100 list was recently released by The Caterer and Sky in July. The Top 100 List is compiled by the UK’s leading hoteliers and hotel experts, including the journalist Fiona Duncan, Giovanna Grossie and other fellow AA hotel inspectors, including editors at The Caterer.
We’re lucky to have some beautiful and so many unique hotels across the UK, these awards recognise the exceptional level of detail that goes in to ensure each and every guest has a perfect experience. This, of course includes their dining experience; with more people wanting to be adventurous and travel the UK and the world, many are looking for an easy choice to have a good lunch or dine in the evening without having to leave the luxuries of their hotel.
If you’ve followed us for some time and read our news stories, we’re sure you would have seen the most recent drinking statistics: wine and Champagne sales are booming – with more guests showing an element of exploration when trying a new wine or fizz!
The Top 100 list includes the likes of The Ritz in London, Gidleigh Park in Devon, Christchurch Harbour in Dorset and The Vineyard at Stockcross in Berkshire and so many more, but we’ll come back to that list a little further along. Something that we wanted to touch on was that these hotels offer unrivalled dining experiences, by using Le Verre de Vin they all add a freshness guarantee on every pour. No more serving glasses of wine on a tray, a bottle brought to the table and poured in front of the guest always adds an element of class and quality to a dining experience.
82 out of the 100 hotels on this list trust Le Verre de Vin & Pod Bar to ensure that every single glass of wine and Champagne is served in perfect condition. Here’s just a sample of our customers below…
“We’ve been using Le Verre de Vin for more than 10 years now and couldn’t be without it. It allows us to offer an ever-changing and comprehensive range of still wines, dessert wines and ports. Knowing that we also have 21-day preservation for sparkling wines / Champagne means that we’re entirely confident to serve Billecart-Salmon and Perrier Jouët, as well as sparkling wine Nyetimber, all by the flute.”
Pete Klimczak, Restaurant Manager & Ali Rasouli Nia, Head Sommelier, The Latymer at Pennyhill Park
The Goring in London use the Le Verre de Vin Classic in their Michelin Starred restaurant, how about a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée Brut, Reims NV? Or go still with a glass of Castello della Sala, Antinori, Italy 2012? Their extensive wine by the glass list is all perfectly preserved by Le Verre de Vin.
Gidleigh Park, a quintessential country house nestled in a wooded valley in Devon. As a fitting tribute to their fine cuisine, Gidleigh Park offers one of the most acclaimed wine lists available in Britain, housing around 1,300 bins of which over 20 are being offered by the glass. The wine list is exceptionally extensive and in 2014/2015 received three gold stars from the World of Fine Wine, 2015 achieved the AA Notable Wine List award and Harden’s Sunday Times Best Wine List award; all supported by a Le Verre de Vin Classic.
Sea Containers at Mondrian London brings the best of American and British cuisine to the Southbank, offering a modern yet casual dining experience in an informal setting alongside the River Thames. With the Twin Pod Bar in their stainless steel bar they’re able to offer both still wine and Champagnes by the glass in perfect drinking condition with our dual temperature controlled refrigeration and preservation system.
