Whisky And WAter at The King Cole Bar

Sin­gle malt or blended, straight up, on the rocks, with still or sparkling water? We be­lieve that at the end of the day, it is all about you and how and where you en­joy your whisky.

Exquisite Taste - - The Art Of Pairing By Equil - By Amanda Lux­ford

Alot of se­ri­ous whisky drinkers have very def­i­nite opin­ions on what makes a good whisky and how it should be drunk. For many, drink­ing whisky, es­pe­cially a sin­gle malt, is much more than a mere in­dul­gence, it is a toast to civil­i­sa­tion it­self, an act steeped in tra­di­tion and some­thing that is al­most cer­e­mo­nial in na­ture and, as such, should be deeply re­spected and fully savoured. To­day there is a vast choice of whiskies avail­able hail­ing from around the world. Many whiskies ex­hibit dis­tinc­tive and unique char­ac­ter­is­tics de­rived from the tech­niques and in­gre­di­ents used to craft this won­der­ful dark spirit.

There are blends, pre­mium blends, rye and corn whiskies, but for most con­nois­seurs at the top end of the whisky league sits the world of the sin­gle malt. Whilst most of­ten as­so­ci­ated with Scot­land, and rightly so, there are no­table dis­til­leries in other coun­tries in­clud­ing Ja­pan, Eng­land, New Zealand, Ire­land, Wales and In­dia, all pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent sin­gle malts.

Sin­gle malts are whiskies made with just one type of malted bar­ley in a sin­gle dis­tillery, each us­ing their own se­cret recipes and tech­niques, of­ten handed down and honed over cen­turies. The re­sult is a plethora of

dis­tinct whiskies that are pro­duced and con­sumed the world over by peo­ple who value qual­ity spir­its.

It seems only right that af­ter all the time and ef­fort that goes into craft­ing a sin­gle malt, it should be never rushed. To us, fully savour­ing your whisky is more than how you drink it; it's about the en­vi­ron­ment, the am­bi­ence and even the glass. In fact, it's about the to­tal ex­pe­ri­ence, which is prob­a­bly why we de­light in en­joy­ing a glass or two in the re­fined el­e­gance and so­phis­ti­ca­tion of the King Cole Bar at The St. Regis Bali Re­sort.

Build­ing upon the fa­mous As­tor fam­ily legacy, this most dis­tin­guished bar is a place where rit­ual and tra­di­tion are ven­er­ated and main­tained. From the evening sabrage to the cu­rat­ing of the finest whiskies and wa­ters, the de­liv­ery of ex­cel­lence is sub­lime.

Need­less to say, in this at­mos­phere, the bar­tenders at the King Cole Bar take their drinks very se­ri­ously and EQUIL Nat­u­ral and Sparkling Min­eral Water is their water of choice when mix­ing drinks.

Many con­nois­seurs con­sider that adding just a drop of water to their sin­gle malt en­hances the nat­u­ral flavours and aroma and for this, EQUIL is a great choice as it is fully nat­u­ral. Bot­tled at source, there are no added min­er­als or chem­i­cals. It is this pu­rity that makes EQUIL the ideal part­ner for pre­mium drinks, both as a mixer and in cock­tails.

The resur­gence of the cock­tail has not only seen an abun­dance of high qual­ity spir­its en­ter­ing the mar­ket but a moun­tain of ex­per­i­men­tal cre­ativ­ity by bar­tenders. So if you choose to turn your whisky into a high­ball, EQUIL sparkling will make it a re­fresh­ing drink that goes down smooth and easy.

What­ever your choice, take some time to be part of tra­di­tion and savour your whisky the way you like it.
