Let the Good Times Flow and Raise a Toast to World Gin Day at The Lobby Lounge of The Westin Manila

World Gin Day may long be over, but the worldwide love for gin is a month-long affair for one of the world's iconic distilled spirits. That calls for one more round of refreshing handcrafted libations at The Lobby Lounge of The Westin Manila...

The Westin Manila celebrates World Gin Day at The Lobby Lounge with its tempting offer of Unlimited Gin Cocktails for two hours until June 30 paired with tasty curated bites created by Executive Chef Rej Casanova. Ready to let the good times flow with all the gin cocktails you love? Then head on over to the The Lobby Lounge at The Westin Manila for a tipple to properly celebrate and honor World Gin Day. Let's do a round of refreshing G&Ts, shall we? 

What began as a medicinal liquor distilled by monks and alchemists eventually refined as jenever by the Dutch and Belgians using juniper berries and other botanicals as early as the 13th century led to the unique tradition of gin as one of the world's beloved spirits. Massive armies were said to be supplied with gin for that shot of Dutch courage before a battle leading to its growing popularity. The Gin Craze of the first half of the 18th century in England further solidified its place in history and lore with its lingering impact felt to this day. Credit your favorite G&T to massive armies driven by gin as it defined the world's borders and history through conquest and England's Gin Craze, and it's just proper to raise a toast right? At The Lobby Lounge of The Westin Manila, your refreshing tipple begins with one of the world's finest gins...

Bombay Sapphire is one of those endearing labels revered by gin lovers all over the world with its fresh and clean notes of citrus and juniper coming together in an elegantly smooth and light finish. Gentle hints of spices and aromatic botanicals completes the flavorful medley with each soothing sip. Juniper berries from Italy, lemon peel from Spain, coriander from Morocco, Angelica Root from Saxony, Iris Root from Italy, Grains of Paradise from Africa, Cubeb berries from Jakarta, cassia bark from Indo-China, almonds from Spain and liquorice from China are some of the prized hand selected botanicals in each bottle of Bombay Sapphire. All these come together in the unique vapor infusion process in the intricate production of Bombay Sapphire. 

The iconic brand's name is said to be inspired by the gin and tonic concoction popularized by the Royal Indian Armed Forces in colonial India at the height of the British empire. The name reflects the both the city and the famous violet blue gem, the Star of Bombay on its label. This is your sign of a truly remarkable gin. 

There's a whole lot of history in Bombay Sapphire reflecting the rich gin culture of English pride. And the best way to enjoy this is with a classic G&T with lemon for that refreshing tipple at The Lobby Lounge of The Westin Manila. I enjoy a variety of cocktails but I find a classic G&T as the best libation for the lingering summer heat in the metro. 

Executive Chef Rej Casanova pairs your Bombay Sapphire G&T experience with his exquisite savory creations of Seared Tuna Tataki with Ginger Aioli and the playfully inventive Mushroom Dinakdakan topped with chili pearls on crisp rice crackers. Each creation brings a unique and distinct set of flavors to the palate, best followed by a soothing sip of the classic G&T. 

You can also enjoy heartier bites with the Cheese Croquettes with its delectable textural contrasts and lavish cheesy richness. Each bite is perfectly complemented by the refreshingly clean notes of the G&T, tempering the savory richness. That's the perfect set-up for one more round and then some. 

The mixologists at The Lobby Lounge gets creative with their take on the classic G&T infused with local notes for a unique gin experience only at The Westin Manila. Explore new flavors with the creative duo of handcrafted libations at The Lobby Lounge...
