When guests visit Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper they drink it all in: the scenery, the adventure, the fine dining, the luxurious accommodation, and the legendary service. Now guests can drink it in – literally – with new signature bottled cocktails from each of the three resorts – Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.
This tipple trifecta was created by Nils Schabert, regional manager of mixology for Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Canada’s Western Mountain Region. “These cocktails represent each hotel in its’ unique environment, showcasing the exceptional experience that we provide for our guests,” stated Schabert. “Now our guests have the opportunity to take a piece of their Fairmont experience home, to share it with friends and family, or to simply savour it a little longer.”
Iconic Peak, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
The Iconic Peak cocktail represents the surroundings of the iconic Lake Louise, and nature’s transformation throughout the year. The color symbolizes the late evening sun embracing its red and purple glow over Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise when sinking behind the majestic mountain range.
Flavour: Comprised of whisky, tawny port, lemon juice, Campari, honey water, and Fairview Bitters, the Iconic Peak cocktail is rich and balanced. A smooth full-bodied texture delivered from the port wine and honey balanced with a hint of bitterness from Campari and fresh acidity from the lemon. The bitters add the herbal touch without overpowering the drink’s flavourful sensation.
Emerald Glow, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
Paying homage to its landmark location, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, the elegant flavours of the Emerald Glow cocktail visually represent the vibrant green lakes for which JPL is renowned.
Flavour: Combining vodka, cucumber Vermouth, Chartreuse Verte and Lime Juice, this is a fresh and well balanced drink. The Emerald Glow cocktail offers an elevated and crisp texture from the cucumber infusion paired with the herbal sweetness of the Chartreuse.
Wildflower, Fairmont Banff Springs
A delightful, modern twist on a Negroni, the Wildflower cocktail embodies equal parts timeless and contemporary. It’s an eye-catching floral drink that leaves a lasting impression, much like the Fairmont Banff Springs itself.
Flavour: Getting its elevated structure from the unique Rundle Bar Gin which is infused with butterfly pea flower, The Wildflower cocktail is smooth through the entire drink experience with a sweet and light fruity finish thanks to elderflower liqueur, Lillet Blanc, and plum bitters.
The Fairmont signature bottled cocktails can be purchases for $21 per cocktail or $59 for all three. They are now available for purchase at Stock and Rundle Bar at Fairmont Banff Springs; Fitzhugh’s and Emerald Lounge at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge; and at The Guide’s Pantry and Fairview Bar at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
