Walter Caesar, the premium all-natural Caesar mix, is thrilled to be the Caesar provider of choice for luxury hotel The Fairmont Royal York. The unique partnership allows guests to enjoy a never-before-tasted version of Canada’s favourite cocktail during their stay in Toronto’s historic gem.
The Caesar experts behind Walter Caesar have crafted a very unique Caesar recipe specifically for The Fairmont Royal York’s guests and visitors. Aptly named the Royal Caesar, it will be the only Caesar mix served in the hotel guestrooms, onsite bars and restaurants – a big achievement for the small Canadian start-up.
In collaboration with the talented food and beverage team at The Fairmont Royal York, Walter’s co-founders worked for almost a year to perfect the custom recipe. The Royal Caesar mix, as with Walter’s other flavours, is made with all natural ingredients such as vine-ripened tomatoes and Ocean Wise recommended clam juice from the North Atlantic. “The primary difference between the Royal Caesar and regular Walter is in the signature spice blend,” Walter co-founder Zack Silverman explains, “which includes delicious hints of cumin and chipotle, giving the Royal Caesar a complex and earthy flavour. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind cocktail.”
The Walter team is excited and honoured to be the exclusive Caesar mix provider for the iconic hotel. “We’re very proud of our partnership with The Fairmont Royal York and the Royal Caesar, and can’t wait for the guests to try it,” adds Walter co-founder Aaron Harowitz.
“Our guests have always loved The Fairmont’s classic Triple-Pepper Caesar,” says Patrick Lernihan, Director of Food and Beverage for The Fairmont Royal York, “so we’re thrilled to have Walter provide us with an all-natural spin on our signature Canadian cocktail.”
When served at The Fairmont Royal York, the standard Royal Caesar will be made with Ketel One vodka, an ultra-premium vodka that helps make the cocktail something special. Geoff Kosar, Brand Director, Vodka at Diageo Canada shares, “we are very excited to have Ketel One featured as the vodka in the new Royal Caesar and to be working with The Fairmont Royal York and Walter on this unique version of the classic Canadian cocktail.”
The all-natural Ocean Wise recommended product will be produced and packaged in individual-sized 300 mL bottles right here in Toronto. Bottles will also be available for purchase at The Fairmont Royal York gift shop.
