Iconic London members club, Tramp is to release a limited-edition Champagne and 24k gold burger to celebrate its 50th anniversary year, on 19 July.
The illustrious club has played host to a litany of stars including Frank Sinatra, Sir Michael Caine, Sir Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones and The Beatles over the years, but this is the first time guests will be able to drink the club’s own brand of champagne.
Two, limited edition champagnes – a Blanc de Blanc and a Rose – were created in partnership with Eminent Wines
The Blanc de Blanc uses grapes from the Montagne de Reims region and has notes of peach, brioche, vanilla and gingerbread. It is a beautifully fresh, delicate wine, perfect for pairing with white meat or fish. It’s priced at £70 when buying through the Tramp website or to take home and £110 in the club.
The Rosé – costing £80 for home and online orders or £120 to enjoy in the club – combines grapes from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and offers delicious, raspberry and pink biscuit flavours with hints of vanilla and floral touches. It is a complex, structured and elegant champagne that will perfectly accompany white meat, fish or desserts.
In addition, a Tramp Brut Cuvee will also be available for purchase at £55 at retail price and £95 in the club. All champagnes are available to preorder from the club’s website before their 19 July launch.
Tramp manager, David Fleming says: “Over the years, Tramp has served thousands of bottles of champagne to its glamorous clientele including rock stars, Hollywood royalty and actual royalty and our 50th anniversary seemed like the perfect time to offer that same experience to members of the public.
“We’re excited about giving people the chance to taste a little bit of this magical club when they drink Tramp champagne.”
The club will also be celebrating its golden anniversary by launching an opulent, 24k gold burger.
When Tramp launched in December 1969, the owners took their lead from the grand, hand-carved ceiling – formerly part of a Freemasons Lodge – that depicted the twelve signs of the Zodiac, by offering twelve Zodiac Burgers on their menu in their 17th Century, wood-paneled Zodiac Restaurant .
These have now been perfected into a single dish, known as the Tramp burger – and it boasts a secret sauce known only to the club’s head chef, which has been carefully passed down through five decades.
Its 50th Anniversary upgrade will see the regular Tramp burger topped with truffle, while the patty will be given an extra special makeover for its Golden Year, with a 24k gold leaf coating.
The burger will be added to Tramp’s menu from July 19.
Fleming says: “The burger has been a stalwart of Tramp’s menu for 50 years and we are marking our golden year by giving our signature dish a golden makeover.
“A burger and fries with foie gras and 24k gold perfectly sums up Tramp: Glamorous and luxurious on the outside, but still down to earth and fun once you get inside.”
Tramp launched on December 18, 1969 and can be found at 40 Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6DN
