Champagne sabering event held at Palm Dubai hotel
Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on Dubai's The Palm Jumeirah is set to host the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or (Brotherhood of the Golden Saber), an event where guests will learn the 'noble art' of sabering Champagne.
The Brotherhood, which was created more than 25 years ago by Jean Claude Jalloux, the Grand Master, is devoted to promoting the art of Sabrage worldwide.
Sabrage involves using a curved sword called a sabre to delicately break the neck of a champagne bottle to release the beverage.
There is a growing number of ‘Caveaux de Sabrage’, which range from small restaurants and wine bars to grand hotels, where the act of Sabrage has been commended to perform. This event will therefore see the official opening of a ‘Caveau’ at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the first location in the Middle East.
The evening will begin with a theatrical introduction and an official ceremony of the Brotherhood, followed by a gourmet five-course dinner at Voi with a selection of Bollinger Champagnes. Guests will have the opportunity to meet Jean Claude Jalloux himself as well as Chef Neill and his team in the kitchen, who will be preparing a bespoke menu of Vietnamese cuisine especially for the occasion.
