OH MY GOD­DESS!

In the he­do­nis­tic arena of art and lux­ury, both Dom Pérignon and Jeff Koons are stealth forces to be reck­oned with. No won­der the Dom Pérignon by Jeff Koons is a col­lab­o­ra­tion un­ri­valled in orig­i­nal­ity. Koons recre­ated the mon­u­men­tal Venus Bal­loon with a re­flec­tive sur­face; in­side the god­dess sits a bot­tle of the vel­vety Dom Pérignon Rosé Vin­tage 2003, just wait­ing to be savoured. This limited- edi­tion col­lectible is avail­able in Malaysia through a be­spoke ser­vice. Tel: 03-2053 8688. www.mhdm.com.my Cock­tail mixol­o­gist, mem­ber of the Coin­treau fam­ily, and her­itage man­ager of Coin­treau. Please share a fam­ily ex­am­ple of fus­ing liqueur and food? My grand­mother never shares her se­crets, but I can tell you of a clas­sic French dish that is a must at ev­ery Coin­treau lunch or din­ner. Grill a beau­ti­ful white fish, driz­zle it with a splash of Coin­treau, and sprin­kle a pinch of sea salt. Per­fect! Dita Von Teese and Coin­treau, how did that hap­pen? Well, it all started with the first ad­ver­tis­ing film Edouard Coin­treau cre­ated in 1989. In it, Pier­rot, the muse of Coin­treau, is seen with a lady un­dress­ing in the back­ground. She trans­lates Pier­rot’s dream while he is drink­ing Coin­treau. It’s a drink cre­ated for ladies, which was very out of the norm in the 19th Century. We wanted to con­tinue be­ing un­con­ven­tional with Dita Von Teese, as she also trans­lates this. A fas­ci­nat­ing fact about the process of cre­at­ing Coin­treau? My grand­fa­ther said cre­at­ing Coin­treau is like the four cor­ners at the bot­tom of a bot­tle. One rep­re­sents wa­ter, the sec­ond is al­co­hol, third su­gar, and the fourth cor­ner is the or­ange, the flavour of Coin­treau.
