British Airways Brings New Martini Experience to Concorde Room


British Airways’ customers travelling through its exclusive Concorde Room at Terminal 5 will now be able to sip on the perfect martini ahead of their flight.


The airline has introduced an exclusive martini mixer designed by British aviation and adventure specialists Bremont, alongside British design and engineering company, CALLUM.


The specialist mixer has been engineered with exact precision and crafted from machined stainless steel to mix the ultimate martini, every time. An accompanying bespoke moving bar houses built-in scales to ensure the quantity of the martini ingredients are perfectly measured.

The martini mixer, which features a turbine-inspired design, has a motorised mixing paddle engineered to carefully stir the cocktail at the perfect speed of between 120-160 revolutions per minute, elevating the citrus and floral notes to create a smoother martini blend balancing the ultimate combination of aeration, dilution and cooling, resulting in the Turbine Martini.


The Turbine Martini is a modern take on the classic cocktail and has been designed by the airline’s award-winning partner mixologist, Mr Lyan (Ryan Chetiyawardana).


The Turbine Martini takes on the elegance of an original martini with a modern twist, combining classic ingredients such as vermouth, custom bitters and a bespoke garnish, with the airline’s newest gin partner, Aviation American Gin.


When martini lovers are ready to enjoy the cocktail, the airline’s Concorde Room colleagues will mix and pour the Turbine Martini seat side.

British Airways is continuing to invest in lounge improvements at London Heathrow and across its network. The airline recently unveiled its Whispering Angel bar in its London Heathrow Terminal 5B lounge and will complete its full refurbishment later this year, bringing a new feel and look to the space.


The cabana space in the airline’s Concorde Room at London Heathrow is also undergoing a refresh including new day beds and areas for working, with new furniture both in the Concorde Room and Arrivals lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 5, as well as in its lounges at London Heathrow Terminal 3.


The airline is also improving its lounges further afield, with new touches to its Edinburgh lounge as well as a brand-new bar and an enhanced menu offering in its Seattle lounge.

British Airways has also introduced the full range of Don Julio Tequilas into its UK lounges and will be the first airline to offer 1942 Añejo on board in First, as well as in its Concorde Room, offering customers a premium tequila when they travel, both on the ground and in the air from September.


British Airways previously collaborated with Mr Lyan in the development of the cocktail menu available in its lounges, with two serves specially created in celebration of the airline’s heritage and iconic colleagues, called the Barton and Lawford, after Lynn Barton, the first female British Airways pilot, and Bill Lawford, the first ever British Airways pilot in 1919.


The airline also partnered with Bremont ahead of its centenary year by unveiling a limited-edition watch, featuring metal from one of its most iconic planes in history, the Concorde.


Customers looking to recreate the unique lounge experience at home can also purchase their own martini mixer from callumdesigns.com/martini-mixer.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
