KUALA LUMPUR: The Partner Bars for the East Imperial Gin Jubilee Kuala Lumpur 2019 have unveiled the signature gin and tonics that will be competing for the title of KL’s Best Gin And Tonic 2019.
A total of 26 Partner Bars were given one of the Gin Jubilee’s 13 Partner Gins to pair with East Imperial’s range of premium tonic waters. In order to, create a signature drink that will not only highlight the flavours of the gin, as well as the importance of using a high quality tonic water like East Imperial.
“This year’s Gin Jubilee has 13 Partner Gins, and East Imperial’s four tonic waters are perfect to bring out the unique qualities and characteristics of each Partner Gin,” says Wholly Spirits Managing Director and Founding Partner Shawn Samuel.
“For this year’s Gin Jubilee, we wanted the drinks to highlight the importance of a good quality tonic water in a gin and tonic. Furthermore, we’re proud to say that each and every one of the 26 drinks have accomplished that goal.”
The winner of KL’s Best Gin And Tonic will be selected by an expert panel of judges as well as social media voting (measured by Instagram likes).
From now until 12 October, the public can vote for their favourite bar’s GnT by posting a picture of the cocktail on Instagram. For the vote to count, each post MUST include the hashtags #EastImperial, #GinJubilee2019 and also the Location of the Partner Bar.
