Glenmorangie Whiskey Tasting

July 11th, 2012

July 19th
7-8pm 

AMAZING DEAL — 500THB 

Glenmorangie whiskey tasting with whiskey guru Arnaud Mirey, Brand Ambassador Asia Pacific at Moët-Hennessy.

Expand your palate and understanding of what makes a great whiskey with help from master sommelier Arnaud Mirey. Enjoy the nuances between 4 great whiskies from a legendary producer.

 

THE ORIGNIAL
A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.
 
QUINTA RUBAN
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas or wine estates of Portugal.
 
LASANTA
Elegant but full bodied this whisky has spent ten years maturing in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being extra-matured for a further two years in Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez in Spain.
 
GLENMORANGIE 18 YEARS OLD
The 18 Years Old is a single malt Scotch whisky of serious distinction. Once it has spent fifteen years maturing in American white oak casks approximately 30% is transferred into Spanish Oloroso casks to spend a further three years maturing. Then, when both elements have reached 18 years, we blend them back together to create a whisky with a rich bouquet and full, rounded flavour.
 
Choice of a full pour of either, The Original, Quitna Ruban, La Santa or special cocktail withThe Original for each participant after the tasting session.

Very Special Old School Sounds by HENNESY VS: HIP-HOP for KAWS in BANGKOK

June 19th, 2012

Thursday 21 June
9PM

Hennessy VS is known for introducing the refined taste of superior French Cognac to a global audience. WTF Gallery & Cafe is known for it innovative, yet classically executed cocktails and for it’s adventurous art and culture programming.

 
For June, HENNESSY VS welcomes the limited edition KAWS Hennessy VS bottle to Thailand. In celebration of KAWS urban street roots DJ Maft Sai & Mr. Wise will be dueling hip-hop vinyl VS. mp3. Pulling from his crates from days in London Maft Sai will challenge Mr. Wise to rummage his mp3 library for equally obscure yet outstanding beats. THINK: De La Soul, MC Solaar, Grand Master Flash and more obscurity.
 
Limited seating — come early.

 

It’s Martini Time

WHY? Sometimes we get tired of being creative with our cocktails. Sometimes basic booze with a garnish is all our palate craves. Sometimes a good drunk calls our name.

Come on Saturday for a celebration of the martini. We’ll have classic gin (or nouveau vodka) with combinations like:

Hendricks Shiso Martini — Hendricks gin, dry vermouth, shiso leaf
Caledonia Martini  — Bar Hill gin from Vermont, dry vermouth. muddled herbs
OR order your preferred.

Secret bar spot in Bangkok

April 4th, 2012

 “I had a cocktail that made me so happy, I never wanted to leave. The food was divine, the atmosphere was so chill-a mixture of locals and foreigners, and I wondered how they’d even found this place. We drove up and down the same street for a while before we finally spotted it.”

The evenings, like the flavors of Hennessy itself, will be a "BOLD, yet HARMONIOUS BLEND… with DELICATE NUANCES.” Each night will be an intimate celebration of special flavours, specials sounds and special company.

March 15th

DJ Maft Sai: Spiritual Jazz— From his rare all-vinyl Jazz collection: Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders, Sun Ra, Dorothy Ashby, Norman Conners, Don Cherry, Steve Reid, Moondog and the like. (In the 1960’s jazz musicians began to explore new thematic and musical ideas, often associated with non-western religious and musical traditions. The new ’spiritual jazz’ became a vehicle for exploring new musical and non-musical concepts, as well as for extended self-expression, laying bare "a mirror into the self.”)
