Bangkok’s Distil bar at Tower Club at lebua shakes up the local cocktail culture once again with the chic cocktail-to-go, Pandora’s Box.
She whispers ‘take-me-with-you’ from her aerial perch at Distil, the city’s highest bar on the 64th floor of Tower Club at lebua, aware of her beauty, originality and exclusivity.
No ordinary cocktail, Pandora’s Box is the latest visionary creation from lebua’s master mixologist, Ron Ramirez. “She is a deconstructed culinary delight created from wild fig, vanilla cigar and orange peel that has been macerated for three days, and gin that has rested in an oak bourbon barrel with house-made raspberry bitters for 50 days”, says her creator.
For those who yearn to easily whisk their cocktail away to the other restaurants and bars at Tower Club at lebua, the very presentable Pandora is served in a golden square paper box, garnished with pineapple, fresh lime wedges, and dried fruits.
Pandora’s Box is the latest masterpiece in Ron’s Barrel Aged series, where ingredients are matured in oak barrels for several weeks, creating house-aged spirits used to produce nuanced cocktails. The Barrel Aged series was preceded by such game-changing creations as his Ice Cocktails, for which he replaced the standard ice that has always turned the best of drinks to water with spheres or cubes of unexpected frozen flavors (as the ice melts, your beverage becomes more flavorsome), and his Senses Signature Cocktails, which are purposefully designed to surprise and delight each of the senses – and continue to do just that seven nights a week.
