On Friday 17 April The Beaufort Bar sent their menu 36 kilometres above the Earth’s surface in a balloon, capturing the above photograph in the process.
The stunt was planned in order to publicise their limited edition pop-up menu which has also been sent to all seven continents around the world – although the copy intended for Antarctica will only arrive at the end of this month.
Chris Moore, head bartender at The Savoy, said: “Since we began discussing the concept of our pop-up menu we have always spoken of the importance of it being a symbolic journey.
“Since then it has literally been on its own journey; through design, completion, release and distribution across the globe. This got us thinking: what’s next? Space!”
The menu was sent into space with the help of Sent into Space, a company which specialises in sending objects into space and photographing them.
There are 15 cocktails in the book which are supposed to indicate a movement from early evening drinking into the wee small hours.
