LiquidChefs first to flair in frosty AntarcticaDecember 2nd, 2009 by H&R | Categories: beverages, tourism
LiquidChefs celebrated another first on 23 November 2009, when they set up a 1.5-metre, fully-equipped evolution bar on the ice in Antarctica to welcome the first-ever commercial flight by White Desert to land in the Antarctic.
White Desert is the only company in the world that can take guests into the interior of Antarctica using private jets. LiquidChefs added to this luxurious experience by serving cocktails on ice to guests upon arrival and during the course of the first-ever day trip to Antarctica.
“It is a landscape unlike anywhere else on the planet, so rarely visited and as beautiful as it is surreal. Seeing a LiquidChefs bar on the ice in Antarctica was definitely one of the most magical moments I have ever experienced,” says Shai Evian, LiquidChefs director.
He adds, “The day-trip was an experience like no other. We flew to Antarctica on a five-hour flight, spent 10 hours on the ice and got back into the jet, flying home again in five hours. What an incredible way to spend a Monday.”
Guests were astonished to see a fully fledged bar on the ice, with freshly-made Martini Zens, Mojitos, Caipiroscas and passion fruit Margaritas.
Evian concludes, “Keep an eye on LiquidChefs, as we continue to explore ideas to deliver exciting and original services and solutions. From the top of Table Mountain to the middle of the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, in the bush at executive game reserves, at celebrity homes, and now with the first-ever cocktail bar in the middle of the seventh continent – we are proud to keep proving not only that LiquidChefs is one of South Africa’s most innovative companies, but that nothing is impossible.”
