Whiskey lovers have something to look forward to in 2020. Offering a fresh take on the whisky bar concept, ‘The Barrel by Feringgi Bar’ is set to open at the Feringgi Grill of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa in March 2020.
As a prelude, The Barrel by Feringgi Bar offered a sneak preview last week for its first batch of whisky aficionados to have a feel of the place and a taste of the fine spirits.
The new whisky bar, measuring 44.5 feet (13.5 metres) long will be the first in Penang to have over 100 labels of whiskies to choose from, including favourites from the Scottish Highlands, to the exceptional flavour profile from the land of the rising sun.
The evening of the soft launch started with the introduction of The Glenlivet distillery in Scotland that produces single malt whisky and followed by Single Malt Sdn Bhd, the top importer of single malts whiskies in Malaysia and Pernod Richard Malaysia, world’s No. 2 wines and spirits producer.
In the spirit of the place, the Cigar Lounge adjacent to The Barrel by Feringgi Bar offers a long list of quality handmade cigars from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Brazil and Ecuador.
