Our favourite season at Casa Mãe: the Indian summer… The perfect time to enjoy algarvian’s beautiful light, relaxing vibes, warm sun and sunbathing on almost empty beaches… and the best part is that blessed season is stretching until November here ;)
To celebrate properly this special season, we have curated with the weekender a special program including a gin feast, meditation classes, residence of an Aussie chef & sommelier duo, workshop with a German artist to learn Japanese marbling techniques…
Just to give you more good reasons to come and visit us ;)
THE GIN WEEK
SET 12th - SET 15th
Lot of gin to kick off the indian summer at Casa Mãe! We are partnering with the independent magazine The Weekender and three craft gin producers, Monkey 47, Gin Sul and the Portuguese Alentejo gin Sharish for a serie of tastings, pairings and workshops to introduce you to the richness of the gin’s flavours.
It will start on September 12th: gin degustation with Florian from Gin Sul, Manuel from gin Sharish and Dirk from the Weekender. They will walk you through the steps of the gin production and the aromatics that make up the gins palette and their distinctiveness.
The tasting will be followed by a 5 course dinner at our restaurant Orta exploring combinations of the sunny algarvian flavours with the gin aromas and cocktails.
Limited availability, 59eur per pax
For the cocktail enthusiasts, we will continue the gin cycle with 3 cocktail workshops, one per day from 5.30pm to 6.30pm to start the evening smoothly – the sessions will be in small groups of max 5/6 persons for you to learn special techniques and tips to get perfectly balanced gin cocktails
