Last month at the world-renowned Frieze London Art Fair, Royal Salute and Kate MccGwire unveiled their striking collaboration – an exquisitely blended and indescribably rare 53-year-old whisky, accompanied by one of 21 sensational amber pheasant-feathered sculptures, drawing inspiration from the unpredictable forces of nature.
To celebrate this achievement, guests were invited to the most opulent banquet hall imaginable – Tate Britain.
Let’s look back at our 5 highlights of the night:
1) The Royal Escort
The night started on a high when our esteemed guests were escorted by chauffeured Rolls Royces from the hustle and bustle of the Frieze tent to the awe-inspiring Tate Britain, dramatically lit up in Royal Salute blue.
2) A Night at the Museum
As attendees arrived at the Tate, they were welcomed into the warm red hues of Gallery 9 – a domed-ceiling space surrounded by elegant masterpieces such as the pre-Raphaelite Ophelia by Millais or Marriage a la Mode by Hogarth. A unique banquet table lined the centre of the room, draped with ivy, asparagus fern, and with heather spilling onto the floor – creating a truly magical dinner setting in one of the most famed historical art locations in the world.
