Vienna, 03. September 2018 - A special partnership travels around the world and stops in the Austrian capital city Vienna: The traditional London brand Asprey, and The Ritz-Carlton, celebrate together their dedication to craftsmanship, enjoyment and exclusivity with a unique global tour.
As one of the chosen hosts of the prestigious Asprey Trolley Tour, The Ritz- Carlton, Vienna will be accommodating the silver bar cart. The impeccable trolley was built specifically for the partnership in 2018 in a silver workshop on New Bond Street in London and will be residing in Vienna until mid-September.
Out of the motivation to cultivate the shared passion for exceptional service, this remarkable brand partnership is enlivened by stylish events throughout the year at each of the Ritz-Carlton tour destinations in the Americas, Asia and Europe.
The station in Vienna stands for extraordinary hospitality and is dedicated to the Art Deco-inspired masterpiece - which is reminiscent of the glory days of bar carts in the Golden Twenties - multifaceted boutique experiences; including an event series in the exclusive Presidential Suite of The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna.
Additional highlights include a daily suite aperitif that is prepared for selected guests of the hotel from the Silver Trolley. A gin-flavored bar serviced by the Asprey Trolley can be found at the exclusive Club Level at The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna which completes the experience with style.
Under the sign of the times, the over 230-year-old tradition of the Asprey House will be made tangible for the guests of the hotel combined with the highest bar culture of today.
"Similar to the master silversmiths, our Ladies and Gentlemen of the D-bar and Atmosphere Rooftop Bar make their creations with the utmost care and precision by hand; this is the unifying element of the successful partnership”, announces Christian Zandonella, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna, who stands with his team for a relaxed yet equally impeccable service culture.
On the occasion of the event, a special signature cocktail was created using the in-house D-bar rums. The unique “Gutmann Negroni” cocktail combines current trends with a special twist of the 20’s. After the first stations at The Ritz-Carlton de la Paix, Geneva and The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna, the trolley’s European tour will be continued onto Budapest, Tenerife, Berlin and Portugal.
