Ritz Carlton teamed up with with iconic luxury brand Asprey for a special cocktail trolley.
The one-of-a-kind silver-plated trolley will travel around the world to Ritz-Carlton hotels in Japan, Europe and the U.S. In select cities, expert mixologists will serve up handcrafted drinks, using local ingredients for regionally curated cocktails. Asprey’s Ciara Hurley-Stewart shares the design inspirations for this singular drink trolley.
The Ritz-Carlton Cocktail Trolley by Asprey draws inspiration from the craftsman’s most creative and innovative bar designs from the 1920s and 1930s, when cocktails marked the height of fashion and when Asprey first started creating cocktail shakers. Celebrating this golden age of cocktails, the silver-plated and tempered glass trolley exudes Art Deco glamour and showcases special design touches such as the Asprey “A”. When fully outfitted with all the essentials, the drink trolley is available for $78,840 USD and can be customized with a selection ice buckets, champagne coolers, ice tongs, and decanters, in addition to handmade shakers and mouth blown, hand engraved glassware, such as a set of 12 tumblers featuring a white engraved octopus motif set against a black background.
