Woodford Reserve concocts the most expensive Old Fashioned it has ever created

The epitome of super-premium Kentucky bourbon whiskey is set to conclude Old Fashioned Month in Singapore with a lavish creation

The Birds of Baccarat Old Fashioned stands as the most expensive Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned ever crafted in the Lion City. At the heart of this opulent concoction lies Woodford Reserve Baccarat Edition, an unparalleled expression of American whiskey aged in select XO Cognac barrels. This unique aging process imparts a delicate balance of crisp American and French oak notes, intricate fruit character, subtle spiciness, and a creamy confectionery finish.

The Birds of Baccarat Old Fashioned goes beyond the ordinary by incorporating saffron and cinnamon distilled into a blend of premium flavours, offering a symphony of sweet, earthy, and floral tones with a subtle hint of spice. To enhance the mature characteristics of the whiskey, the cocktail features luxurious Manuka honey and is crowned with a touch of extravagance—gold flakes.

Of course, what sets this cocktail apart is not just the exquisite blend but the overall experience it offers. Guests will be treated to tableside cocktail service, sipping their indulgence from Baccarat crystal glasses. As a token, customers will take home these crystal glasses along with a special Baccarat crystal rabbit zodiac figurine.

Beyond the luxurious components, the Birds of Baccarat Old Fashioned carries a symbolic significance. It pays homage to Singapore’s rich biodiversity, particularly its avian residents that have adapted to city life. From the ubiquitous Mynah bird to the vibrant Peacock, the amalgamation of migratory species weaves an intricate tapestry embodied in the tipple. The inclusion of exclusive spices also nods to Singapore’s historical role in the spice trade. Naturally, a sampling of the Woodford Reserve Baccarat will also be included.

The experience is available exclusively from S$1,688 at Plume (Pan Pacific Singapore, Singapore 039595), until 31 December 2023.
