Chateau Whistler Celebrates Triple Anniversary With Cocktail Trifecta

March 21, 2019

2019 marks three major milestones: the 100th anniversary of Prohibition, the 50th anniversary of the Caesar, and the 30th anniversary of Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Naturally, the team at Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s legendary Mallard Lounge has taken the opportunity to mark the occasion with three new signature cocktails – just in time for National Cocktail Day on March 24, 2019.

Bees Knees #2

A nod to a Prohibition classic, this timely take on the Bees Knees encompasses Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s bee program by creating house-made Beeswax Gin (beeswax sous vide with Canadian Ungava gin) and combining it with simple syrup, vanilla syrup, and fresh squeezed lemon. Served in a coupe glass, it’s rimmed with dehydrated honey from the hotel’s rooftop honeybees.

5 Decade Caesar

Down and dirty but oh-so drinkable, this cocktail celebrates five decades with each of the five flavour profiles. House-made Thai Chili and Orange Percolated Gin comes courtesy of a cold drip system and a ten-hour timespan. Then combining the gin with vodka, traditional Clamato juice is added for some saltiness while vine ripened BC tomatoes balance with bitterness. A dash of both balsamic vinaigrette and miso add sour and umami respectively, and a splash of Burrowing Owl’s Coruja hits the sweet spot. Muddled in the glass with a five spice mix ensures all the flavours remain intact.

CP Tiki

This tiki tipple is a cheeky throwback to Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s early days as a Canadian Pacific hotel when it opened its doors in 1989. Coconut oil-washed rum, house-made passion fruit cordial, muddled raspberry, and pineapple juice is served up with fun and flair – and even flare – for those that agree thirty is reason enough to celebrate.

Casual, refined and nestled at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, Fairmont’s award-winning Mallard Lounge is one of Whistler’s most iconic destinations for sunny patio cocktails in the summer or après ski entertainment in winter.
