Eponymously named after the year WG&S was founded, the platform will feature weekly guest shifts hosted by bartenders from your favourite watering holes, accompanied by Charmaine Thio and Brett Bayly, the regional brand ambassadors of Hendrick’s Gin and Glenfiddich.

“These are uncertain times for everyone and more than ever, it’s important that we support one another. With 1887 Virtual Bar, the William Grant & Sons family hopes to help our extended family in the local bartending community stay ‘open’ — both virtually and in real life. We’re in this together, and we’re fully committed to supporting our local bar partners, which is why we’ll also match the public’s donations dollar for dollar. We hope the community in Malaysia will tune in and take part,” said Satya Sharma, Managing Director for South East Asia, William Grant & Sons.

Consumers can make a donation and support their favourite bars by purchasing a digital cocktail off the menu on ticketmelon.com/WGS/1887virtualbarMY. Each partner bar will showcase 4 drinks on the ticketing platform and consumers will be encouraged to make a donation to the bar by purchasing a cocktail. Consumers who make the purchase will be able to redeem their chosen cocktail at the bar when it opens.

Even the smallest contribution will go a long way in these unprecedented times, and WG&S will also match the value, up to RM2,000 per bar, standing in solidarity with the local bartending community.
