Experience the Turbine Martini in our Concorde Room

Visit the Concorde Room at Heathrow Terminal 5 to relax with an exclusive Turbine Martini before your flight. The recipe for this unique drink has been created by our partner mixologist Mr Lyan and is made in a bespoke mixer designed by the experts at Bremont and CALLUM.

Combining vermouth with custom bitters and Aviation American Gin, your drink will be mixed and poured at your seat using the turbine-inspired, motorised martini mixer. It carefully stirs your cocktail at the perfect speed to create a smooth and elegant martini every time.
