Fancy visiting some of the world’s best bars? Thanks to Virgin Atlantic you now can – without ever leaving the airport.
Virgin Atlantic’s new Immersive Digital 360 Drinks Experience in partnership with Bacardi offers a totally new way of enjoying a cocktail. Simply order your drink from New York, for example, while you’re sitting at Heathrow and be transported to the Big Apple thanks to the magic of virtual reality.
Clubhouse food and beverage manager, Mark Murphy, travelled the world filming some of the best bars in high definition 360-degree video, including heading to Necker Island! (It’s a hard life, isn’t it?) He’s also worked with Bacardi to bring their signature cocktails to Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses across the world.
“We think this is a unique bar experience and we’re looking forward to delighting our Clubhouse customers with a combination of technology and world class mixology skills,” said Mark. “These are recognised as the very best bars in the world. To bring such a range of award winning cocktails into the Clubhouses shows our commitment to delivering the very best for our customers. The Immersive Digital Experience takes that one step further, and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone’s reaction. It really feels like you can now travel while waiting to travel.”
Knowing that not everyone wants to drink before their flight, Virgin Atlantic turned to Seedlip, the creators of the world’s first distilled alcohol-free spirit, rather than create the usual mocktails. Together, Virgin Atlantic and Seedlip have crafted three complex alcohol-free cocktails for guests to enjoy.
