Soiree de Sabrage, Thursday 15 August, 6:30pm

Events 21 Jul 2024

Two centuries ago, dashing young cavalry officers serving in the French army opted to slice the cork off Champagne bottles using their sabres rather than deal with the hassle of removing the wire basket and easing out the cork. This tradition, known as Sabrage, involves skillfully meeting the glass annulus just below the cork with a decisive tap of the sabre’s edge at the bottle’s weakest point along the glass seam. Tonight, Richard Beck, Assistant General Manager & Sabreur at Smith & Wollensky’s and a member of the esteemed Confrerie du Sabre d’Or, will teach you how using Champagne Lanson Pere Et Fils. Following his masterful demonstration, indulge in a delightful selection of canapés served alongside Champagne Lanson Pere Et Fils. Tickets £45 per person, start time 6:30pm
