A delectable G & Tea has been created to celebrate the occasion with a selection of delicate sandwiches, scones and sweet treats inspired by the botanicals and flavours of Jawbox Gin. Guests can also sit back, relax and take in the stunning views overlooking the Belfast Hills and beyond whilst enjoying the new Jonathan’s Twist Cocktail.
The initiative is supported by Tourism Northern Ireland and the ‘Embrace a Giant Spirit’ campaign has been a focal point for the activity.
Stephen Meldrum, General Manager of the Grand Central Hotel said: “We are delighted to mark our reopening by embracing our giant spirit, in partnership with Jawbox and Tourism NI, by showcasing the world’s largest bottle of gin. We have created a truly unique visitor experience for our guests who can enjoy our new G & Tea and find out more about one of our most famous local legends. Northern Ireland is rich in stories and myths and we are excited to bring part of this to life as we celebrate the reawakening of the giant that is our very own tourism and hospitality industry.”
Founder of Jawbox Small Batch Gin, Gerry White said: “We are thrilled to launch the Jawbox Giant’s Edition in collaboration with Hastings Hotels. The Grand Central Hotel is the perfect home for the bottle, with stunning views overlooking the Belfast Hills that inspired the story behind our Giant’s Edition Gin and from which one of our key botanicals, Black Mountain Heather is carefully gathered.
Our brand is inspired by the magnificent industrial era when ordinary men and women put Belfast on the map for hard graft and craft. Jawbox Export Strength is a modern expression of this uncompromising character, a character that will once again bring the Northern Ireland hospitality industry back to the giant it was pre-lockdown.”
The Jawbox G & Tea is served daily from 1pm – 5pm and is priced £40 or £50 to include the exclusive Jonathan’s Twist Cocktail. To book call 028 9023 1066 or go to www.grandcentralhotelbelfast.com for further information.
