Breakfast of champs

I luv havin a nice, slow, full-on breakfast. When i wake up early that is. The aromas, the fresh air, the morning vibe. The rarity.

Boozy breakfast? Yea, dat too on occasion. Like weekend brunches. Or dat one time i threw my birthday party in the morning. Crazy.

Anyway, beers aren’t the only breakfast drinks out there. Of course there’s champagne too. But a drink specially created for the breakfast market? Yea, there’s one now in the US at least, thanks to Pernod Ricard.

These far-sighted people have just released three breakfast liqueurs under the label Mama Walkers. Flavours? Maple Bacon, Blueberry Pancake, and Glazed Donut.

Yoo hooo! Come n get it...!

Yoo hooo! Come n get it…!

Gosh. These guys are serious about their breakfast. As they should be.

If you can drink your bacon, why eat it?

At 35% ABV, this is ain’t no kiddy shit. Awesome.

Would luv to get some; or recreate with cocktail syrups! Brown-brown would definitely be in da mix.

Remember….  breakfast…  it’s the most important drink of the day.


Absolut goes Denim, Baileys reshapes

Absolut has a trendy new bottle out, Absolut Denim.

I like denim. It’s been rockin since the days of the Wild West. Stylish, durable and timeless.

NYC’s Brooklyn-based ‘edgy’ denim designer Loren Cronk, described as a “star in the avant-garde street fashion scene with a reputation for his handmade denim jeans”, has designed a gift pack.



The Pernod Ricard-owned brand says the Cronk design gives the brand “elegance and swagger, street chic and cool, to get the party started…” Yea, sumtin like dat.

The bottle is hugged by a zipper-sealed dark denim sleeve. And the skin has insulation built-in (I assume its neoprene), so it keeps the liquid cold… Nice.

Taken from the freezer, the sleeve keeps the vodka cool for up to two hours – “genius for the proper urban summer party.” Good, as it’s summer here year-round.

Available in travel retail.


Baileys redesigns

The world’s most famous liqueur has created a new bottle, one that is more sleek. Surprising, as it changed the bottle as recently in 2010.

The cream booze is now in a bottle dats taller with higher shoulders. It follows Baileys’ new tagline, The Cream With Spirit.

Stating the obvious there.

Ol  Roundy vs Slim Jim

Ol Roundy vs Slim Jim

It launches this month, and is for the worldwide market.

Speaking of which, i recently scored a bottle of the limited edition Baileys Orange Truffle! Yea!

Wouldnt mind one of these either!

And another new Absolut bottle..

Absolut seems to be releasing new bottle designs every few months.

But the most exclusive and luxurious type of its iconic bottle is the Absolut Crystal Pinstripe.


Inspired by the Savile Row pinstripe suit, the bottle has been designed by Swedish designer duo Skogsberg & Smart.

It was launched last week at Stockholm Airport, and in line with its exclusivity, will only be available at travel retail (soon). KLIA? I doubt it. Price is as yet unknown.

It’s hand-blown, hand-cut and hand-engraved in crystal by craftsmen at the Reijmyre glassworks in the Östergötland region in southern Sweden.


Each bottle is numbered and signed by the cutter after inspection and approval. The bottle is presented in treasure chest case made by hand and dressed in traditional pinstripe fabric.

The case also contains two matching tumblers. The collection has been inspired by the Savile Row pinstripe suit.

With only 800 bottles produced, i reckon this one will interest bottle collectors.


Baileys Biscotti to launch the UK for now. This is a brand new flavour, a blend of Baileys Original Irish Cream and the aroma of the traditional double-baked Italian biscuits, biscotti.

Cant wait

Biscotti is an almond and pine-nut biscuit.

This is now Baileys’ fifth flavour, as their flavour range is really going well. They’re pushing for Baileys to be enjoyed all year, and not just for Christmas.

Heck i’d enjoy it for CNY, Raya, Gawai, Kaamatan, Deepavali, Halloween, New Year, Wesak, Vesakhi, Valentine’s, breakfast….


Hoppin about

Yea, round up of some recent events.

1. Arthur’s Day launch

Was at Beer Factory, Sunway Giza, PJ.

Arthur's back

Arthur’s Day happens on Sept  23. More details here.

Some weird mickey mouse restaurant in Giza

2. Glenmorangie exclusive fat-cat dinner @ Spasso Milano

This was to introduce to selected guests the Glenmorangie Pride 1981. Good year.

Only 1,000 pieces have been produced for the world.

Thus it’s a very limited 28-year-old single malt. It’s like $400+ per shot. Definitely the most precious fluid I’ve ever consumed. Somehow i had three.

It’s pure ecstatic nectar, nuff said. The Pride is the pinnacle of Glenmorangie’s seemingly consistent desire to push boundaries and innovate. With this creation, a prized 18-year-old batch was aged a further 10 years in Sauternes ‘Barriques’ from the vineyard of Château d’Yquem, France. Fancy.

Malaysia has only been allocated 10 bottles. (Well, 9 now.) Its cost per bottle is more than all my furniture.

We had some insane duck. Unreal stuff

The merchandise. Comes in a funky case with mechanical arms

Some cellar guy appeared with back-up

3. Unveiling of the Chivas Regal 18 Christian Lacroix Limited Edition Bottle

At Imagerom Studio in Kota D, Chivas Regal showcased its collaboration again with fashion designer Christian Lacroix for its super-premium Scotch, with a luxury limited edition. The bottle itself is a work of art, with a metallic outfit, and mirrored interior. Looks awesome, probably a collector’s item.

3,ooo made, with 1,000 for travel retail, where it goes for about RM1,500.
