Delicious Lunar New Year Limited Edition Beverages That Will Keep Your Spirits High

A glass of fine beverage is an eternally appreciated pleasure – and, as it happens, the industry is well aware that it is a prime gifting season. No matter your tipple – whisky, cognac, champagne, or anything else – you will surely find something to your taste. The list below highlights some topical and limited edition releases that are perfect for the Lunar New Year – and some are bundled with extra goodies, too.

Martell Cordon Bleu Limited Edition

Cordon Bleu, the robust and powerful – yet always elegant – cognac has been a signature of the maison Martell since 1912. It is currently available in a limited-edition box in the house’s trademark deep blue, with colourful graphics that celebrates travel and the brand’s global reach. It can also be found as a gift set that includes a snifter, an ice bowl, and ice tongs to match.


Royal Salute Lunar New Year Special Edition

The mature, complex stylings of Royal Salute’s classic 21-year-old blend is presented here in a vibrant, festive packaging of reds and oranges, filled with nods to the celebratory gestures that take place during Chinese New Year. It was designed in collaboration with Shenzen-born artist Feifei Ruan. The lion is not part of the Chinse zodiac, but it is the brand’s mascot and looks here as regal as ever. Inside the box, the whisky’s signature porcelain flagon is a deep red instead of the usual blue.

Chivas Regal 18 gift set

Amongst Chivas Regal’s more indulgent fare of blended whiskies is its 18-year-old offering, which is reputed to have no fewer than 85 distinct flavour notes, making it a richly complex dram. This limited edition gift set includes a swirling glass and a wooden coaster, which encourages a sophisticated imbibing experience to match the aged liquid itself.


Perrier-Jouet Blason Brut and Blason Rose in Ecobox

As sustainability becomes ever-more in-vogue and important to consumers, little touches such as Perrier-Jouet’s Ecobox packaging are increasingly appreciated. The specially designed white gift-box packaging is made from natural materials, is fully recyclable, and its light weight makes transport less resource-intensive. Its embossed floral patterning is a tribute to nature, viticulture, and the romance of brand founders Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adelaide Jouet. The maison’s core offerings of Blason Grand Brut and Blason Rose can be found in the Ecobox. The former is also available as a limited edition gift set that includes two champagne flutes you can toast to the Lunar New Year.
