The Doyle Collection’s resident MW Anne McHale has helped the Kensington Hotel’s K Bar and Town House to take the successful leap into selling its entire wine list by the glass, supported by Le Verre de Vin.
In this latest blog post we take a quick peek through the curtain to see what the team at K Bar are up to…
First up, for those who aren’t already in the know… The Kensington Hotel is part of The Doyle Collection, a luxury & urban hotel group originating from Jurys Doyle Hotels, the largest hotel group in Ireland. This group consists of 8 hotels in 5 cities (check out sister site The Bloomsbury in London for another great wine list and a beautiful outdoor terrace)
Set in the stunning hotel, K Bar has the “rarified air of a member’s club where a list of top wines, spirits and cocktails has been designed for nights of casual opulence”… Sounds like a must-visit to us and all the more reason to now they have begun selling their entire wine list by the glass.
The hotel’s MW Anne McHale commented to Harpers Wine & Spirit Trade News “I am delighted to be able to offer guests at both the K Bar and Town House this unique opportunity to sample such a varied range of fine wines by the glass. It gives our guests the chance to experiment with different top- quality wines to match every dish in their meal.”
It’s a list full of treasures, whether you’re a sucker for some old school charm in the shape of a Bordeaux legend, a celebratory glass of vintage Champagne or an adventurous taste of something new – there’s a wine for everyone, and all available in a variety of glass sizes.
We caught up with MW Anne McHale (one of only 370 Masters of Wine worldwide!) ourselves to ask about The Kensington Hotel’s successful new wine by the glass service and how they use our unique Le Verre de Vin preservation systems to support such an extensive offer:
“Our ability to offer such a wide range of wines by-the-glass is partly due to our investment in the superb Le Verre de Vin system which keeps opened bottles as good as new for several weeks – but at the same time is easy and quick for our staff to use.”
Thanks to Anne and The Doyle Collection team for taking time to chat with us. The trend towards consumers drinking less but better might just be the hottest of 2018 and for ideas on how you can implement the perfect by the glass service for your business get in touch HERE.
