An evening with Havana Club
As the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, I cannot think of a better way of spending an evening than in the company of good friends and food so I hope this post will inspire you how to create the perfect dinner party over the festive season. And as someone who positively relishes meeting new people, I was thrilled to attend one of Havana Club exclusive sobremesa dinner parties at the beautiful private members club Devonshire Club in the city of London close to my offices.
The purpose of the dinner was to raise awareness around the Havana Club Iconica range (specifically focused around the Tributo and Maximo expresssions) through the format of a sobremesa experience, which literally means “over the table.” Its about the time that is spent chatting and enjoying each other’s company over a meal; the idea that how we eat is as important as what we eat.
And as we often feel like often one of the biggest luxuries in London life is time, taking time to relax over good food and conversation, the sobremesa moment encourages people to take more time to speak with each other in a meaningful way. With a variety of guest speakers, Cuban music playing in the background, and Tim Marchant’s of Black Tomato’s anecdotes about his time in Cuba, we felt were transported to Havana for the evening and I certainly didn’t want the evening to end. It was truly special evening and one I will remember for a long time.
