SINGAPORE, July 2018 – The annual Mid-Autumn festival is a time to gather with family and loved ones. Traditionally an occasion celebrated with mooncakes and Chinese tea, guests of Michelin one-star Summer Palace can look forward to a unique celebration this year with mooncakes and the amber-gold goodness of American whiskies.
Summer Palace Chinese Dim Sum Chef Leong Kwok Sing partners with Bar Manager Philip Bischoff of Manhattan, Asia's Best Bar, to present an exquisite collection of perennial favourites and two new Manhattan-exclusive snow skin mooncake variants: Barrel-aged Sazerac 6-year-old Rye with Coffee and Chocolate and Barrel-aged La Louisiane Cocktail with Yuzu and Green Bean Paste.
Featuring over 100 American oak barrels from a small cooperage in Minnesota, the world’s first in-hotel Rickhouse is housed in Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel - used to finish whiskies and other spirits, and to age bitters and single-cask cocktails. As part of Manhattan's American Whiskey Embassy programme, a taster series box was created and features two specially made barrel-aged blends, which Chef Leong has creatively used in his snow skin mooncake creations. Guests have the option to purchase the Manhattan Mid-Autumn box which comes with an assortment of Manhattan-exclusive snow skin mooncakes and a limited edition four-set whiskey tasting box ($168).
NEW Barrel-aged Sazerac 6-year-old Rye with Coffee and Chocolate Snow Skin Mooncake
Further aged in a 10-year-old tawny port-washed American oak barrel for 25 days, this 6-year-old rye whiskey has been given a complex layer of flavours. Infused with the coffee and chocolate paste, oily and nutty notes play on the palate, delivering sweet and sharp flavours that will excite.
NEW Barrel-aged La Louisiane Cocktail with Yuzu and Green Bean Paste Snow Skin Mooncake
A classic Creole cocktail popularised in New Orleans has been given a new life in Manhattan's Rickhouse. High West OMG Pure Rye, Mancino Rosso Vermouth and Dom Benedictine, are solera-aged in fresh American oak for a total of four weeks. Relish the perfect pairing of sweet and citrusy with notes of overripe oranges, yuzu and a green bean paste that hits all the right notes to awaken the senses.
Not to be missed as well are signature snow skin selections –Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds, fragrant Green Tea with Melon Seeds, the classic White Lotus Paste with Yolk and Melon Seeds and the bestseller, Durian; known for its deliciously creamy bittersweet combination of fresh Mao Shan Wang and D24 durian meat.
Indulge, too, in well-loved baked classics such as the Parma Ham and Pork Floss with Assorted Nuts, which features a premium 24-month cured Parma Ham and generous servings of assorted nuts, white sesame and winter melon, balanced with subtle pork floss and orange peel. Other baked highlights include White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk and Melon Seeds, White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and Melon Seeds and White Lotus Paste with Melon Seeds.
For those looking to indulge, Chef’s Bird’s Nest with Custard promises to please with its decadent custard centre and slivers of premium bird’s nest.
About the 2018 mooncake box
Taking inspiration from ornate Asian wood furniture carvings found in Summer Palace, this year's mooncake box design showcases the "beauty in simplicity" with an elegant and timeless classic. The structured red box has a delicate textured touch-feel that subtly adds a hint of premium luxury, while a bold gold geometric emblem symbolic of the restaurant's intricate woodwork is an eye-catching highlight; a statement piece for a Mid-Autumn gift to family, friends and business partners.
About the Manhattan Limited Edition Whiskey Tasting Box
The box features four 2cl taster bottles for imbibing pleasure: two specially curated American whiskies and two exclusive barrel-aged blends from the world’s first in-hotel Rickhouse at Regent Singapore.
Home to a collection of handpicked aromatic and specialty Chinese teas, Summer Palace offers delightful blends for the perfect pairing. Sip on Dragon Pearl, hand-scented with fresh flowers, promising a wonderfully sweet and delicate floral scent balanced with the taste of fresh green tea. Also on the menu is the High Mountain Oolong which is smooth, crisp and light, bringing an ideal balance to the sweetness of the mooncakes. Other tea selections include Lion’s Peak Dragon Well, for a smooth, pleasant and delicate finish; and the classic Pu’er, among others.
