CAPE TOWN, 16 August 2018 – Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence Cape Town collaborated with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and the hotels’ resident Stratus Steak House to host guests at a function this evening where samples of some of the best Wagyu beef in Cape Town were paired with the finest bourbon.
Addressing guests at the function, Deen Hopcroft, Food and Beverage Manager for Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence Cape Town said: “Spotting a gap in the market, the concept of pairing quality Wagyu beef with equally premium Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey was born. Reared in the Karoo, the steakhouse will be serving only the finest premium Wagyu beef cuts, paired with mouth-watering sauces and side dishes.”
“Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey offers a variety of taste variations that can be perfectly paired with particular foods as well as cooking techniques,” added Head Chef at The Stratus Steak House, Duncan Pontac. “From Old No.7 to Tennessee Honey to the recently introduced Tennessee Fire or the double mellowed Gentleman Jack, every care has been taken to ensure that diners will experience the best the whiskey brand has to offer.”
From this August, The Stratus Steak House, situated within the luxurious Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence Cape Town, will be serving up a unique gastronomic experience. The concept is a simple yet beefy one: Take some of the finest Wagyu beef available in Cape Town, pair it with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey-infused basting and sauces, then top it all off with a live jazz band, and the result is bound to awaken a lot more than merely the taste buds this side of the Tennessee River.
Known for its excellent service and menu, The Stratus Steak House is looking forward to the partnership, which will not only offer Capetonians but local and foreign visitors alike the opportunity to indulge in a different dining experience.
The newly developed menu will consist of premium Wagyu beef cuts that can be prepared with a selection of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey basting sauces, as well as served with an equally palatable selection of Jack Daniel’s-infused sauces, jus, and – of course – Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey drinks.
Mellowed through 10 feet of charcoal and then matured in handcrafted barrels, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey doesn’t follow a calendar; rather the renowned ‘sippin’ whiskey’ is only ready when the tasters say it is, and it this century-old tradition that has stood the test of time.
The Stratus Steak House and Jack Daniels’ Tennessee Whiskey menu will be available to diners every Thursday to Sunday, for lunch between 12h00 and 16h00, and supper from 17h00 to 22h00; accompanied by live jazz performed by the talented, Cape Town-based Gareth Harvey Jazz Trio.
