Emirates has announced a refresh of its range of spirits served onboard, with some high-quality names being added.
Spirits on board are served complimentary across all classes and routes and include a range of premium brands of whiskeys, cognacs, gins, vodka and flavoured liqueurs amongst others.
The new selection has been made by an in-house team of experts who spent two years working directly with suppliers to curate the brand new spirits offering.
The new offering is extensive, with over 30 new spirits and liqueurs served across all classes. The choice of spirits is accompanied by Emirates’ selection of over 80 fine wines and champagnes.
The new onboard spirits menu includes a mix of niche, hand-crafted brands as well as popular and well-loved spirits. Well-known names include Hennessy cognacs, which are served in all classes, including the exclusive Hennessy Paradis in First Class. For a limited period on select routes, the extremely rare Hennessy Paradis Impérial will also be available.
Other brands served in First Class include the Dalmore King Alexander III, the only single malt Scotch whisky in the world created using a unique six-cask finish; Belvedere luxury vodka; Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch whisky and premium Guatemalan rum, Ron Zacapa Centenario XO.
In Business Class and at Emirates’ A380 Onboard Lounge, passengers can enjoy Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15-year-old single malt Scotch whisky, small batch premium bourbon Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select, craft gin Sipsmith, and more.
Spirits available in Economy Class include Dewar’s White Label Scotch whisky, Beefeater gin, Russian Standard Original vodka, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey and Bacardi Carta Blanca rum – the world’s most awarded rum.
Emirates is also serving regionally focused beverages such as Amarula, a fruit cream liqueur available in all classes.
Additionally, Emirates has refreshed its cocktail menu by adding the Negroni, Old Fashioned and Aperol Spritz.
In Economy, Jack Daniel’s whiskey is the most requested drink from Emirates’ list of spirits. In Business, Sipsmith gin takes the top spot, while in First, the most popular spirit requested is the Chivas Royal Salute whisky which is aged for 21 years.
