If you are amongst those true alcohol connoisseurs, who like to take their bar along while traveling, then we have news for you. American burlesque model Dita Von Teese, in collaboration with well known liquor brand Cointreau, has unveiled a portable travel bar called the “My Cointreau Travel Essentials”. The bar is specially made for the lady travelers. This travel case comprises of elegant cocktail accessories housed in a retro style white box which looks like a classic vanity case. The portable bar consists of following items:
A bar spoon
A silver shaker
Two classic looking glasses
A Cointreau atomizer (a spry bottle that instigates a new cocktail ritual)
A leather Cointreau notebook which can be used to pen down innovative recipes
A limited edition bottle of Cointreau
On the launch of this exclusive portable bar, Dita Von Teese said:
“In both my professional and personal life, I travel extensively. I love to make cocktails that remind me of the places I’ve visited—a Cosmopolitan in New York, a Margarita in Miami, or a Sidecar in Paris. But I also wanted to be able to enjoy these cocktails wherever I may be, where the ambiance is right. The bar ensemble provides everything you need to make a cocktail in style, and it is also a glamorous box to keep beautiful hats, or other personal treasures. For me, ‘My Cointreau Travel Essentials’ evokes a nostalgic time gone by, when style and glamour were at their peak, with the cocktail component adding a modern twist.”
The “My Cointreau Travel Essentials” portable bar has been rolled out exclusively for the festive season and will be available from November for $399. The case is decked in white elegant leather that opens up like a cupboard and the inside of the case resembles a mini bar. The inner curve of the case is adorned with glossy golden color and few cabinets to house the accessories.
Cointreau is planning to partner with the famous Morgans Hotel Group to present “My Cointreau Travel Essentials” as a special feature for the festive season. The hotel is offering a luxury package which will include a complimentary bag, a signature Cointreau cocktail Drinks by Dita and a stay at Morgans Hotel Group property.
