Satryna – The Ultimate Tequila

Satryna – The Ultimate Tequila

 

 

With a rich heritage dating back far as half a century – premium Tequila brand Satryna spans from its roots as a unique blend crated by the owners of Mexico’s beloved Tequilera Newton for their close friends and has such been revived as a niche choice for the ultimate connoisseur of fine Tequila.

In a seemingly male-dominated industry, Satryna also stands as the first female-led partnership to produce a drink of its kind and is led by third-generation granddaughter Nitzan Marrun after embarking on a journey to launch the brand and share it with the world.

 

 

 

Made in only small batches and crafted by hand, the distinct character and complexity of this refined spirit is the result of the vigorous processes that go into creating it, a mix of age-old harvesting techniques and modern distilling goes into each bottle of Satryna adding to its depth.

Made from pure blue Weber Algarve sourced from the rich soils of Jalisco, the exquisite taste of the ultra-luxe tequila is also completely vegan and free of gluten and carbohydrates as well as being low in calories.

 

 

 

Having already taken the industry by storm, the striking bottle takes its inspiration from Dia de los Muertos and features an emblematic skull cap intricately decorated crafted and adorned in ancient Aztec art towards the neck of the handmade decanter.

Perfectly served as an aperitif, for a nightcap or as an accompaniment to a well-curated meal, Satryna is available as a Cristalino or as a triple-distilled Blanco and is already served in the likes of Annabel’s, The Groucho club and TRAMP.

 Available from Selfridges or online at The Whisky Exchange.

 

Aegean Dining at Kenshō Ornos

A contemporary blend of relaxed Myconian aesthetics and Aegean gastronomy make Kenshō Ornos’ Restaurant the perfect destination for chic all-day dining in the heart of Mykonos. 

 

 

 

 

A contemporary blend of relaxed Myconian aesthetics and Aegean gastronomy make Kenshō Ornos’ Restaurant the perfect destination for chic all-day dining in the heart of Mykonos.

Conveniently situated against the stunning backdrop of the hedonistic 5-star boutique hotel, the restaurant at Kenshō Ornos overlooks the starlight pool of this cosmopolitan retreat and immerses itself in Kenshō’s stylish splendour.

Evoking Mediterranean design accents, the open-plan restaurant oozes contemporary style in a traditional palette of whites and neutrals complemented by low-lit lighting and wooden furnishings. The restaurant is also adjacent to the hotel’s stylish lounge bar which is well-positioned one floor up allowing for pre-dinner cocktails overlooking Mykonos’ serene sunset.

 

 

Offering a refined take on Mediterranean fine dining with an Asian and Latin influence, the menu is curated by Executive Chef Nicos Constantinou and is comprised of small and large plates centred around Aegean cuisine.

Seasonal tastes and a palette of exotic flavours set the tone for this menu of sharing plates, snacks, salads, pasta and mains in a well moderated mix to satisfy any appetite. Serving an all-day menu for lunch and dinner, the menu is designed with a sharing concept in mind but with individual dishes gives diners the benefit of flexibility to order as desired.

From the à la carte menu, the Nibbles and Appetisers along with the All Day Snacks are best shared, perfectly sized dishes giving a light taste of some of the menu’s favourites also make for a perfect alternative to a light lunch for days spent by the pool.

Start with the Tacos de Atun Crunchy Cones, a delectable blend of tuna, spicy miso, and a yoghurt mixed with a cool blend of honey and ginger, the Crab Croquettes are also a particular highlight and are paired with a potato purée and black garlic mayonnaise.

 

 

 

A nice alternative for those that don’t eat fish is the Mastelo Cheese Tempura, a deliciously warm battered cheese complemented by shaved fennel and toasted hazelnuts. For a varied mix of tastes the Prawn Gyoza and Chicken Yakitori both add a nice element of Pan-Asian for the taking.

Perfectly poised for an evening meal, the hearty mains on the menu range from truffle pastas and Myconian salads to larger plates of meat and fish. The Grouper Fillet is a Berkeley Bespoke favourite, an oh-so-satisfying loin crusted in almond served with squid ink, carrots, asparagus and a citrus hollandaise.

Other popular dishes include the Truffle Bucatini, a rich pasta made with truffle cheese sauce and black truffles and the beautifully cooked Pata Negra, a loin of Iberico pork dressed in maple syrup and a potato purée.

Finish with Kenshō Ornos’ delectable choice of desserts and a bottle of wine from the restaurant’s extensive selection and it soon becomes clear why the restaurant is one Mykonos’ many culinary gems.

PRITCH London & The Berkeley World Rock Fashion Week

PRITCH London & The Berkeley World Rock Fashion Week

 

 

 

Marking the highlight of London Fashion Week, avant-garde fashion designer Arina Pritch showcased her eponymous label PRITCH London’s latest collection during a fashion show and presentation.

Launching her Divine Beings capsule, Pritch chose the iconic backdrop of St George’s Church for the stylish affair which was hosted in close partnership with the brand’s key partners The Berkeley World and Berkeley Travel.

 

 

 

Commenting on the show, CEO of The Berkeley World Andrew Bezhenar said ‘it’s a great honour for The Berkeley World to partner with Arina to launch her incredible collection during London Fashion Week, the brand continues to go from strength to strength setting the benchmark for high fashion and PRITCH’s non-conformist approach to luxury and use of sustainable leather continues to inspire me’.

 

 

 

 

Centred around the brand’s flagship use of leather and rarefied exotic skins, the Divine Beings collection pays homage to Greek mythology, modernising the aesthetic with PRITCH’s use of striking silhouettes and contemporary cuts.

A feminine, yet bold capsule, the collection embodies the goddesses’ who inspired the classic cuts and elegantly curated shapes PRITCH is so well known for. A romanticised palette of powerful reds and yellows sits alongside muted tones of grey and contrasting monochromatic blacks.

 

 

 

In a nod to the iconic aura of evoked by goddesses Hecate, Aphrodite and Athena is reflected through leather trenches, A-Line skirts, asymmetric tops and form-fitting corsetry with pleated leather and houndstooth echoed throughout.

 

 

 

 

A star-studded of the fashion set’s who’s who attended the show with guests including Simon Binke, Andrew Bezhenar, Beau Han Xu, Kas Galos, Jayraj Sisodia and Amanda Caroline Cronin all gracing the front row for the occasion.

INTERNI: Mykonos’ Mediterranean Gem

INTERNI: Mykonos’ Mediterranean Gem

 

 

 

Perhaps one of Mykonos’ most celebrated restaurants, Interni is a sensory journey of gastronomy set against an idyllic garden in the heart of Matogiannia and offers a menu of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine.

The brainchild of Nikos Varveris, Interni is the flagship of the Interni Group (which now also in corporates Ftelia Beach Club and The Wild Hotel both also on the island) and oozes chic Myconian style under the direction of famed designer Paola Navone.

 

 

 

An open-air environment, Interni’s glamourous décor, seasonally changing menu and extensive wine list has attracted the who’s who of the Mykonos jet-set over the years and continues to charm with its fun, yet chilled vibe.

Foodwise, the menu is centred around modern Mediterranean cuisine influenced by innovative tastes of the world. Start with the Octopus Carpaccio, delicately delicious, the finest, thinly sliced octopus is perfectly complemented with a chilli sauce and salad drizzled in a truffle vinaigrette. The Burrata on the menu is some of the freshest on the island and the ceviche is also a favoured choice for its tasty helping of mango and grilled sweet potato.

 

 

 

Further on in the menu, one is spoilt for choice with Interni’s flavoursome choice of salads, pastas and eclectic mains. The Interni Salad is a must – think warm goats cheese, caramelised pecans and a generous dressing of sherry vinegar. For the seafood connoisseur, Berkeley Bespoke’s ultimate indulgence is Interni’s Lobster Risotto; a to-die-for mix of sweet potato, truffle oil, lobster tails and an irresistible mix of aromatic butter.

 

 

As well as its sensational feast of a menu, Interni also boasts an extensive wine list and a well-curated cocktail menu served up by mixologists. Highlights on the drink menu include everything from Louis Roderer’s Cristal through to some of the finest dessert wines Europe has to offer. Start with a pre-dinner cocktail to really heighten the experience–the Mykonos Breeze is a particular favourite and encapsulates the island’s cool skies in a modern long drink.

Introducing The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith

Introducing The Rolls-Royce Ghost Zenith

 

 

 

Commemorating the ten-year anniversary of the iconic Ghost, Rolls-Royce has created a capsule limited to just 50 of special edition Ghost Zeniths in a tribute to the contemporary nameplate which has become a key trademark of the marque today. Presenting a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire the Ghost as production reaches the end of its lifecycle, the Zenith exudes timeless appeal evoking the elegance of its namesake counterpart.

Originally launched during Geneva in 2008, Ghost quickly established itself as the first driver-focused Rolls-Royce attracting a new generation of younger clients before becoming amongst the most sought after cars in the world as well as the most successful motor car built by the marque to date. Now, in its most bespoke form, the Ghost Zenith pays homage to the conceptual 200EX referencing many of its aesthetes from its Spirit of Ecstasy set in the centre console of each Zenith to depicting a portion of a blueprint in the console based on the icon split across the fifty models.

Beautifully punctuated, other features of this limited run include embroidery to the headrests inspired by the 1907 Silver Ghost and a unique shooting star configuration to the legendary starlight headliner. Currently being hand-crafted within Rolls-Royce’s Goodwood home, order books are soon to close for this extraordinary work of art.
