Diamonds and Dom Pérignon: Searcys Host Christmas Brunch Like No Other

This December, Searcys at The Gherkin will see in the festive season with four very special diamond brunches. The ultimate London day out, guests will sip on Dom Pérignon Champagne as they indulge in a stunning four-course brunch, overlooking the city from the top floor of one of London’s most iconic landmarks. What’s more, one lucky guest from each of the four Sunday brunches will walk away with a genuine diamond worth £1,000 certified by Embee Jewels of London.

Taking place on 2, 9, 16 and 23 December, the events will be held in the Iris Bar. Located on the top level 40 of The Gherkin, the 360º bar displays panoramic views across the city below. Bringing a whole new level to the millennial pastime, this will be a brunch offering like no other. At the bottom of every glass of Dom Pérignon Vintage Blanc 2009 lies a sparkling stone, one of which is a real, full-cut brilliant diamond. Once guests have finished their Champagne, Diamond Inspectors from The Embee Diamond Reception will be on hand to inspect the stones one by one and reveal the real diamond.

The four-course brunch menu itself, which is on offer in the Iris bar every Sunday in December, will be no less magnificent. Pastries and artisan bread, butters and preserves are followed by a choice of smorgasbords such as homemade ricotta, heritage tomatoes, toasted pumpkin seeds or smoked salmon, super-seeded bread, pesto, spring onion, soured cream. Hearty winter mains steal the show, with dishes such as bavette steak, red wine sauce with fried ego satisfying.

In keeping with the luxury of the occasion, traditional eggs Benedict, Florentine or Royale will be topped with sustainable, organic Kasperskian caviar from the Swiss Rhône. No less decadent, desserts include freshly-made waffles with fruit compote or a chocolate ganache tart with malt ice-cream and Guinness gel.

This would be a fab way to start the festive period with your loved ones and get together for a special treat to celebrate Christmas with a little bit of luxury.
