The Odyssey and Cavalry Charge cocktails at The DorchesterThe group’s flagship hotel, The Dorchester in London, is celebrating London Fashion Week this September, with a particular focus on Teatum Jones. Guests can toast the launch of the English fashion duo’s Spring/Summer ’13 collection the with a tailor made Champagne cocktail, the Odyssey, containing Sipsmith gin, Van Wees rose liqueur, nettle cordial, raspberries and lemongrass.

In keeping with the pro-British theme of the summer, patriots and Brit-enthusiasts alike can show their support for Queen and country with a Cavalry Charge cocktail (gin, wild strawberry liqueur, ginger beer, fresh lime and blue Curaçao). The cocktail, made by The Dorchester bar manager Guiliano Morandin and fashion journalist Hilary Alexander costs £17, of which £2 goes to the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund.

Yet further south to the group’s Italian venue, the Hotel Principe di Savoia, Milan, the fashion-orientated hotel has collaborated with designer Fendi to create the Principe Champagne Bar in their Italian Gardens, open to guests and public alike.
