Food For Thought: Diplomático And Alibi Announce Their Sustainable Dinner Series

Selected Dates until Thu 04 May 2023
Making moves to bring a more prominent sense of environmental awareness to Sydney’s dining scene, Diplomático rum has partnered with Alibi Bar & Kitchen, to unveil a Sustainable Dinner Series for hungry herbivores. Championing their eco-friendly production methods and commitment to conscious cuisine, the two brands together are serving up a bespoke banquet of plant-based meals paired with new and classic rum cocktails - because your dinner date shouldn’t cost the earth.

Continuing the mindful momentum built around Earth Day 2022 (April 22), Diplomático and Alibi Bar & Kitchen are hosting two exclusive dinners throughout the month of May. Calling on all 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.

Introducing your palate to the powerful flavours of vege, Alibi begin their banquet 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, not without decadent Diplomático cocktails served between dishes. Bringing an unsuspecting measure of bright and fresh flavour to your beverage, Diplomático simultaneously showcases the use of whole fruits within the pineapple inspired Air Mail and Banana Old Fashioned. Incorporating dehydrated elements and working with oleo saccharum, this menu proves how multi-faceted sustainable dining can be.

“Diplomático boasts a strong duty of care to both people and the planet, working to distil premium rum in the most sustainable way possible. 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 like the exciting Air Mail or Banana Old Fashioned”, says Sai Hamsala, Diplomático Brand Ambassador.

“Diplomático and Alibi are the perfect alignment with sustainability and innovation at the forefront of all they do. 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”, says Ian Curley, Group Creative Culinary Director for Ovolo Australia.

A premium product distilled consciously, Diplomático’s philosophy is to preserve, respect and protect their surrounding environment. In the last six years they have: reduced their water consumption by up to 50%, implemented a comprehensive waste management system that converts byproduct into fertiliser, planted nearly 16,000 native trees, and created their own energy cogeneration system that supports 80% of its annual turnover. In fact, it’s one of the only liquor companies in the world to have earned the ISO 14001 certification, a prestigious recognition for companies delivering on their environmental responsibility.

A carefully considered partnership, Alibi Bar & Kitchen too are driving the sustainability movement from the inside out. Nestled within Woolloomooloo’s much-loved Ovolo hotel, Alibi Bar & Kitchen is committed to the international hotel group’s vege pledge now exclusively serving plant-based dishes within all venues. Creating cutting edge, seasonal menus, Alibi Bar & Kitchen sources produce from local clean and green suppliers including Sydney’s first commercial indoor plant farm. Wines and spirits from the most progressive producers, Diplomático included, also sit comfortably behind their bustling bar.
