Take A Weeknight Break With A Gin Or Two At The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur

Lind & Lime Gin has arrived in Malaysia and is residing at The RC Bar in The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur. It is forged from the talent, heritage and industry of Edinburgh and its historic distilling district of Leith. Lind & Lime Gin is stored in a vintage design glass bottle that can double as a fancy glass water bottle or an art deco item in your home. At the launch of Lind & Lime Gin at The RC Bar, four cocktails—accompanied by a cheese platter—were served and specially crafted by Mixologist Karl Too. First was A Ritzy Gimlet, a beautiful ocean blue cocktail in a martini glass with fresh lime juice and blue curacao, for the sweet tooth drinker. Next was the Cucumber-Rose Lind Spirit, which consists of fresh lemon juice and dried rose petals, for those who prefer something less sweet. But the highlight goes to The French 75, where Lind & Lime Gin is blended with fresh lemon juice, perfect for those who love citrusy cocktails. Finally, there is the timeless The Lind and Lime Tonic. All cocktails are priced at RM80, while a bottle of Lind & Lime Gin goes for RM980. Head over to The RC Bar for their Ritzy Gin Hour, every Thursday from 6pm to 11pm. The bar is also open daily from 11am to 11pm serving all sorts of spirits.
