Margot, the Italian restaurant which is based in Covent Garden and part of C & C Alpha’s Shanti Hospitality, has announced that SW19-based Wimbledon Brewery has created an exclusive lager for the restaurant. This is a first for the dynamic South London brewer to team up with award-winning Covent Garden Italian fine dining eatery.
Margot co-founders Paulo de Tarso and Nicolas Jaouën, who bring a wealth of experience of the London restaurant scene, spoke enthusiastically of the partnership with Wimbledon Brewery:
“Relationships with our partners are hugely important to us – we are proud to make a feature of our suppliers on our website. The Wimbledon Brewery story, the company ethos and their discerning branding, all match what we strive to achieve at Margot. We both have small teams, dedicated to providing the very best service and produce to our customers. Quality beer absolutely has its place alongside quality food, and complements our extensive wine list perfectly.”
Mark Gordon, Founder of the Wimbledon Brewery, says:
“We were delighted to develop this beer in collaboration with Paulo and the team at Margot. We produce well-balanced beers, made using the finest ingredients, which, in the hands of our Master Brewer and his team, pair perfectly with fine food. Margot’s Lager Beer has been designed to reflect the elegance and sophistication, so evident in all that is offered at this fantastic London restaurant.”
Further plans for collaboration include a beer matching dinner at the restaurant in the first part of 2018.The Margot beer is a lagered golden (Helles) beer, overlaid with a blend of classic and German hop varieties.
