Sabre’dor at the Langham Hotel

We were invited by The Langham Hotel to take part in their 150th Anniversary. Duncan Palmer, the Managing Director, presided with the Mayor of Westminster at the cutting of a cake which was an exact replica of the hotel and Grand Commandeur Gerard O’Shea, Ambassador for the UK, sabraged a magnum of Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne. The hotel is becoming a Caveau de Sabrage and we look forward to some events there.”Langham
