Upscale Living Magazine - - Contents -

Ve­laa Pri­vate Is­land is one of the world’s pre­miere des­ti­na­tions for gas­tron­omy; each and ev­ery mo­ment of­fer­ing a new sen­sa­tion for gourmet lovers and con­nois­seurs alike, and for wine lovers, it is home to the largest wine and cham­pagne col­lec­tion in the Mal­dives - housed within a fu­tur­is­tic 75-foot tower.

A true de­light for wine en­thu­si­asts, this very spe­cial wine cel­lar holds a tan­ta­liz­ing se­lec­tion of la­bels from bou­tique winer­ies to grand mar­ques from all cor­ners of the globe. Within the core of this magnificen­t wine cel­lar guests can ex­pe­ri­ence a tast­ing mas­ter class led ex­clu­sively by the Mal­dives’ only som­me­lier.

An ex­quis­ite list that has un­earthed trea­sures from across the globe the ex­clu­sive mas­ter class al­lows guests the op­por­tu­nity to taste gems such as the 1956 Do­maine de la Ro­manée Conti “Ro­manée Conti”, rare vin­tage Sa­lon Cham­pagne, and a cen­turies old for­ti­fied 1870 Blandy’s “Verdelho Sol­era”.

For spirit con­nois­seurs the new Ve­laa Vin­tage Cock­tail menu, avail­able at Avi, the vibrant pool­side bar that over­looks the In­dian Ocean, of­fers guests the most ex­trav­a­gant way to en­joy a drink in such breath-tak­ing sur­round­ings. The ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tion of cock­tails will be on ev­ery afi­cionado’s bucket list, show­cas­ing the crafts­man­ship of ex­tremely rare liquors, of which there are only a lim­ited amount of bot­tles left in the world.
