London Chaiparty and Burleighs Gin join hands to present to you An Evening of Gin & Indian food. 

With micro distillaries popping up all over the country, we thought it was high time someone took the plunge and paired actual Indian food with craft Gin. Our 6 course gastronomic flight would cover food from different parts of India, cooked in different styles, and those that vary a lot in terms of taste and flavour. Each course would be accompanied by a Burleighs Gin cocktail, and a tasting sample of the gin used to create that particular cocktail.

Burleighs is a smooth, classic London Dry gin made  in the heart of Leicestershire. Master Distiller Jamie Baxter took inspiraton from Charnwood Forest to create a recipe featuring dandelion, burdock, silver birch and elderberry along with more traditional gin botanicals. The three expressions of Burleighs Gin use the same eleven botanical ingredients but each has its own character, from bold and spicy to floral and aromatic which Brand Ambassador Henry Yates has incorporated into the 3 gorgeous cocktails he has created for the evening. 

Welcome canape: Masala popcorn, to munch on while you settle down for an evening of Gin & food.

The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating, and explained all the courses and the food was good. I was particularly touched as they were one short on the final dessert due to someone having a dessert in place of an earlier course, and were mortified that there wasn't one for me, even though another diner gave me theirs. As a consequence they insisted on paying for my bottle of gin at the end of the evening - an extremely kind gesture. Thank you very much x

I first went to a London Chaiparty event some time ago and have been looking forward to going back for another one ever since. This event included a gin cocktail pairing to go with the various courses which worked beautifully - gin and Indian spices seem to be a match made in heaven!

We have a very vibrant supper club culture in London and so there are many cuisines, chefs and venues to choose from. Having been to a lot of events over the past years I can say that this is one of the very best supper clubs in London. The ladies at London Chaiparty come from different parts of India and their passion is to introduce diners to food from those regions. This means that you will be eating food that you won't be able to find in any Indian restaurant in the UK and are only likely to try if you're lucky enough to eat in someone's home!

Last night's menu was delicious from start to finish and included several courses as well as little snacks and nibbles. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the company around the table was great too! The London Chaiparty ladies looked after everyone so well and made us all feel very welcome. The food was plentiful and also incredibly good value for money given the generous portions and the gin pairings.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone - very much looking forward to coming along to another one very soon!
