“Every year we want to stay ahead of the game and strive to take the extra step to WOW our customers in terms of the mooncakes package design.” shared W Taipei Hotel Manager Vivian Lin. “This is the fourth year in a row for us to work with Taiwanese designers and to support the local up-and-coming talent. We believe this year’s gift set will be craved and collected by our guests.”
“Traditional with a twist, is the concept of the 3 mooncakes flavors.” shared by W Taipei Beverage and Food Director Patrick Duff. “This is the first time we spike the acclaimed Taiwan Kavalan Concertmaster Single Malt Whisky in custard cream with the note of sweetness and complexity from the Port wine cask. By adding in bird nest and black bean into the creamy pumpkin paste is the healthy and nutritious choice. The most popular flavor will be the milk chocolate with sea salt and five nuts (hazelnut, cashew nut, pistachio, almond, and Macadamia).”
The mooncakes gift box is designed by the international-award-winning (Tokyo Designers Week, Milan Salone Satellite) Taiwanese designer “mr.sheep.” The honeycomb-paper-bag design is inspired by the moonbeam, the shape of the moon waxes and wanes. For the WOW factor, the users can play the “W Moonbeam” Hologram microfilm via a smartphone on the Redliuli customized glass within the set. The guests could not only use the glasses to sip but also to be pleased by the floating illusion moonbeam in the glasses.
