A new brand of vodka has arrived, Royal Dragon. And the kick-ass party was at Marini’s On 57.
It’s kinda brings together different angles from various countries – combining the best ingredients from around the world – Russian vodka, 23-carat Swiss gold, the Asian dragon, diamonds from Belgium, Italian packaging and Dutch design. It’s brought in by Carlsberg Breweries Malaysia via its subsidiary Luen Heng.
Yup, it’s in the super premium category. There are three variants – the entry-level Elite, the Imperial, which comes in a fancy box (this goes all the way to 6-liters), while top-of-the-shelf Emperor is a limited edition one which has a special ”crystal dragon in a golden cage motif bottle, gold flakes and an 18 carat solid gold cap with 35 diamonds”. No kidding.
888 Emperors have been produced.
You can enjoy drinking top grade Swiss gold flakes when you have the Emperor. Don’t freak out when you take a crap the next morning and your dump starts to shine at you.
This newly-created brand has a health angle too, as it uses organic winter harvest rye, which is then distilled five times in copper pot stills in St Petersburg. The result is an exceptionally smooth product, enjoyed over cubes or in mixes.
The bottles look pretty nice; they’re hand blown. And sitting inside is a sculptured dragon.
The Royal Dragon will only be found at selected high-end pubs, bars and entertainment outlets. Enjoy!
