Diplomático rum has partnered with Alibi Bar & Kitchen to unveil a Sustainable Dinner Series for hungry herbivores.
The rum brand and restaurant share a passion for championing eco-friendly production methods and commitment to conscious cuisine. Together are serving up a bespoke banquet of plant-based meals paired with new and classic rum cocktails.
Coinciding with the mindful momentum built around Earth Day 2022 (April 22), Diplomático and Alibi Bar &
Kitchen have announced two exclusive dinners throughout the month of May.
Appealing to vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, climatarians, this is an opportunity to eat and sip some incredible plant-based produce, while learning how to lessen our environmental footprint by truly thinking before we dine.
The banquet begins with an aged beetroot tartare, before moving on to slow roasted heirloom carrots with a green cardamom custard. A fable mushroom pithivier is the main event, with smoky eggplant and romesco sauce as a side dish. Decadent Diplomático cocktails are served between dishes, showcases the use of whole fruits within the pineapple inspired Air Mail and Banana Old Fashioned.
“Diplomático boasts a strong duty of care to both people and the planet, working to distil premium rum in the most sustainable way possible,” said Sai Hamsala, Diplomático Brand Ambassador.
“Being eco-friendly isn’t and shouldn’t be boring, our range of dark spirits, the Reserva Exlusiva specifically, provide the perfect base for creating so many conscious cocktails.
“Diplomático and Alibi are the perfect alignment with sustainability and innovation at the forefront of all they do,” said Ian Curley, Group Creative Culinary Director for Ovolo Australia.
“We’re looking forward to hosting the first of the ‘Diplomatico x Alibi Plant’d Sustainable Dinner Series’, coming together to showcase the finest plant-based dishes complimented with the finest sustainable rum. We want to drive the message of just how it is to minimise our impact on people, animals, and the entire planet”,
