The Lounge By Frogmore Creek
Dylan will be running a 2 (two) week activation where patrons who order his Perfect Blend cocktail, Ni Yama, will go into a draw to win a dinner for 2 (two) people at The Lounge by Frogmore Creek valued to $160. There will also be a ticketed event for a maximum of 14 (fourteen) people consisting of a 3 course dinner with cocktail pairing, this will be held on World Bartender Day (February 14th). There will also be a draw prize for those in attendance to win a bottle of Hakushu Distillers Reserve Whisky (Dylan’s hero spirit for Ni Yama).
Shared Moments and Fried Chicken
My drink is based around sharing moments with friends, so I’m creating 750ml version of my drink, aimed at being shared amongst friends. As a bar that specialises in fried chicken it made sense to me to pair a shareable cocktail with shareable food, so it comes as drink & food pairing with a hot sauce I’ve made that links the flavours in the drink with the food. The deal will be available for the whole of February/ We have the benefit of running our kitchen from open to close, and this means that a late night snack with friends can be accompanied with a matching drink.
Ettie's Piano Bar
For the two week activation period, guests will be prompted to purchase, photograph and share on Instagram Wendy's Whey to go into the running to win a masterclass for two at Etties Piano Bar. To be eligible Etties Piano Bar, The Blend and World Bartender Day must all be tagged.
