Wine by the glass success at the Kensington Hotel’s K Bar & Town House

Have you ever thought about offering a unique wine by the glass experience, while growing profits and providing a freshness guarantee for all your customers? Let us show you how easy this is to achieve…

Independent wine consultant & wine educator MW Anne McHale has helped the Kensington Hotel’s K Bar and Town House take the successful leap into selling its entire wine list by the glass, supported by Le Verre de Vin. The Kensington Hotel is part of The Doyle Collection, a luxury & urban hotel group originating from Jurys Doyle Hotels, the largest hotel group in Ireland. This group consists of eight hotels in five cities. Set in a stunning town house in South Kensington, The Kensington Hotel boasts elegance, a quiet relaxing atmosphere, scintillating staff and is now one of the only venues to home in on the new trend of selling all their wine & Champagne by the glass!

Helen Gilbert interviewed MW Anne McHale for Harpers Wine & Spirit Trade News “I am delighted to be able to offer guests at both the K Bar and Town House this unique opportunity to sample such a varied range of fine wines by the glass. It gives our guests the chance to experiment with different top-quality wines to match every dish in their meal.”

We caught up with MW Anne McHale ourselves to ask about The Kensington Hotel‘s successful wine by the glass service, and how they use the unique Le Verre de Vin preservation systems to preserve a full range of wine and Champagne. Anne is one of only 370 Masters of Wine worldwide!

MW Anne McHale: “Our ability to offer such a wide range of wines by-the-glass is partly due to our investment in the superb Le Verre de Vin system which keeps opened bottles as good as new for several weeks – but at the same time is easy and quick for our staff to use.”

Anne has utilised Le Verre de Vin by securing an exquisite wine & Champagne by the glass service. This trend in the drinks trade is expanding all around the world and it’s approaching fast! Your customers and guests are looking for better wine, in better quality, served in better condition. You’d hate a customer returning a flat pint of lager so don’t let your wine and Champagne service fall behind. Use Le Verre de Vin and Pod Bar to perfectly preserve every open bottle of wine and Champagne, to offer an unparalleled wine & Champagne by the glass service just like The Kensington Hotel, with the Perfect Serve, of course.
