Champagne brand Dom Perignon has teamed up with Michelin-starred chef Skye Gyngell to launch its new 2005 vintage with a series of limited-edition luxury events. Running for two weeks, Les 3 Étages includes tastings, lunches and dinners in a London townhouse furnished by Casa Fendi.
Tickets for the experience begin at £95 for a tasting, rising to £200 for lunch and £250 for dinner. Courses include crab with shaved raw wild asparagus, borage flowers & samphire; guinea fowl with morels, broad beans & peas; goats curd, foraged herbs, fig, fennel & walnut bread; and Gariguette strawberries with set cream, brown butter & rye short bread.
As the pop-up moves from new idea to an established part of food culture, branded events are taking on more defined USPs. Grey Goose hosted a pop-up boulangerie in 2013, while Baileys celebrated the launch of its chocolate liqueur last year with an Art Deco-inflected experience designed by Bompas & Parr.
