The Great Chase Tour of Switzerland – Basel & Zurich

With no time to spare it was all aboard the train to Basel, the home of our distributor Paul Ullrich. Basel offers a wide selection of restaurants and Cafes with strong influences from Germany and Italy, I headed straight to the local Piadina hot spot that serve up fresh wraps with your choice of filling.

That evening Bar Atlantis hosted an evening with Chase Distillery. Guests were greeted with a Chase cocktail on arrival complemented with British inspired food pairings including Fish and Chips, Cornish pasties and scones.Regaling stories of getting the distillery started, a tasting of the range followed with particular interest for smoked vodka and GB gin which has just entered the market.

The following day the train rattled and hummed its way onto Zurich for a bar tour with local rep Nadine. The highlight of the day after visiting Zurich’s top cocktail spots was dinner at George, a delicious steak washed down with local Swiss wine and a Breakfast martini with Marmalade vodka to finish!
