Presenting: The Age Of Discovery cocktail
Think you know cocktails? Think again. Only available at The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar, The Age of Discovery cocktail has travelled the globe on board Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2 to create a unique flavour using Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Whiskey.
With only 700 serves available, guests can order Age of Discovery at the Beaufort Bar as an exclusive explorative serve – inspired by the incredible, vast journey the cocktail has taken. The drink, priced at £90, is served in a custom–made glass with a magnified base, atop a map board which shows the journey and temperatures the barrel went thought during its 41, 000 nautical mile journey around the world.
Also available to take home in a bottle, the Age of Discovery blend has become the latest limited edition bottle (priced at £350) in The Savoy Collection – one of the world’s most prestigious and unique collections of one-of-a–kind spirits and liquids. Launched in 2013, The Savoy Collection was created with the support of esteemed drinks experts Speciality Drinks to celebrate the rare and the beautiful from the world of drinks; Age of Discovery makes a wonderful addition to this incredible collection.
During her four-month circumnavigation, Queen Mary 2 visited 39 ports of call in 27 countries, during which time the barrel was secured in open deck space to expose it to the varied elements and climates that have influenced the fascinating final result. Prevailing temperatures, humidity and sunlight – as well as more inclement conditions – have combined to produce this truly unique barrel-aged cocktail.
