As part of a series of events to mark 250 years since the first ever Rosé Champagne was created by Ruinart in 1764, the champagne brand have collaborated with Browns Hotel in Mayfair London to create the Brown’s Ruinart Rosé 250th Anniversary Afternoon Tea.
In addition to traditional finger sandwiches and freshly baked scones with homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream, a selection of pastries incorporating the sweet red fruits found in Ruinart Rosé champagne have been hand selected, including a classic victoria sponge and a strawberry tart. The grand finale of the Ruinart Rosé afternoon tea is a giant Ruinart Rosé sharing macaroon, large enough for two to share. Ruinart Chef de Cave, Frédéric Panaïotis, said:
‘We are very proud of our rosé champagnes and it is wonderful to know that the history of rosé champagne started at Ruinart. Afternoon tea is the perfect meal with which to enjoy a glass of champagne, and the Brown’s tea room a charming environment in which to savour the flavours of our elegant Rosé.’
The Brown’s Ruinart Rosé 250th Anniversary afternoon tea will be available at Brown’s Hotel,
Mayfair until the end of September at a price of £110 for two people.
