The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa has launched a Book Menu

The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa has launched a Book Menu giving its guests the unique opportunity to purchase signed copies from some of Edinburgh’s most celebrated contemporary authors including Ian Rankin, Alexander McCall Smith and Kate Atkinson, directly from their bedroom.

The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa is the only hotel in the city to offer the “Books in Bedrooms” room service. The Book Menu, which is present in all 269 bedrooms, also features a carefully selected range of classic Scottish books, locally-written children’s books and hand-picked guide books to the city that can be delivered to the room in minutes.

The hotel has worked in collaboration with a local independent bookshop owner Gillian Robertson and has been supported by the Literary Tourism Innovation Fund, created by the Edinburgh City of Literature Trust and Edinburgh Tourism Action Group, with a key aim to develop new literary tourism experiences across the city.

Tristan Nesbitt, the General Manager at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa said: “The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa has a close connection with Edinburgh’s cultural quarter which is right on our doorstep. Within a day of launching, guests have already purchased several books from our legendary authors and have been thrilled by the opportunity to embark on a literary connection with Scotland’s capital – the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature”

Director of the City of Literature Trust, Ali Bowden commented: “The Book Menu is a fantastic opportunity to bring literary Edinburgh to tourists and enrich their visit to our city. Reading about Edinburgh when staying in Edinburgh can turn a holiday into a captivating experience as the voices of Edinburgh authors lead the way along the wynds and closes in the footsteps of their characters.”

One Square has partnered with Pickering’s Gin to produce its own-recipe gin

One Square Bar and Restaurant on Edinburgh’s Festival Square, has launched its own brand of small batch premium gin in collaboration with Pickering’s Gin at Summerhall Distillery, Edinburgh’s first gin distillery in over 150 years.

 

One Square Gin is based on a unique recipe that has been exclusively created by One Square’s team of gin experts, known as the Gin Concierge, working hand-in-hand with Matthew Gammell and Marcus Pickering, founders of Pickering’s Gin at Summerhall Distillery. Demonstrating true passion for their craft, the joint team perfected the recipe to create a small batch London dry gin that contains 15 carefully-considered botanicals including juniper, bog myrtle, pink grapefruit and Scottish heather. Mediterranean liquorice and orris root were added to produce a heady kick, while notes of lemon, lime and anise were combined to create a citrusy, easy-drinking gin. The gin has been distilled by hand and packaged in a stunning square bottle by Pickering’s Gin at Summerhall Distillery, situated just over one mile from One Square.

In celebration of the launch and the city of Edinburgh’s gin heritage, the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa has created an exclusive Gin Package (from £230 per night based on two sharing) which showcases the hotspots in Scotland’s gin capital. This special experience features accommodation in a classic bedroom including full Scottish breakfast, a gin amenity on arrival, a guided tour of Summerhall Distillery where the One Square Gin is distilled, and the chance to gain some inside knowledge with a member of the Gin Concierge over a One Square Gin Cocktail in the bar. The Gin Concierge has also created an all-new gin discovery map which highlights some of Edinburgh’s must-visit bars, shops and venues for gin-enthusiasts. For those wishing to continue their gin immersion at home, One Square Gin is also available to purchase by the bottle in the bar (£49.95 for a 70cl bottle, 40% volume).

One Square, which launched three years ago, was one of the original bars in Edinburgh to develop its team with an expert knowledge of gin, ahead of the city’s gin renaissance. The bar offers more than 60 premium varieties of gin and hosts tutored tastings, with its coveted weekend and evening spots in high demand. Tristan Nesbitt, General Manager of the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa said: “The One Square Concierge team boasts an exceptional knowledge of gin so the creation of our own One Square Gin seemed the natural next step. We are very excited about introducing this special new gin experience to our regular guests and local customers who share the bar team’s passion for gin.”

The Gin Concierge has captured the essence of One Square Gin with its Perfect Serve (£10.50) which is served over ice in a frozen balloon glass with delicious Fever Tree tonic and garnished with pink grapefruit peel and thyme. The distinctive One Square Gin Cocktail (£9.00) highlights the Scottish heather botanical with the addition of heather syrup which is served with Galliano L’Autentico in an old fashioned glass with a square ice cube and a gold-coated lime leaf.
