Drink Like the Oscars Stars with Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey


Hollywood, CA (Feb., 15 2017) – Since 1927, the historic Hilhaven Lodge estate in Beverly Hills has been the scene for some of Hollywood’s most legendary celebrations for many of Tinseltown’s most recognizable stars. This year the legend will continue, as The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey will star during the Oscars® and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Ball after-party on February 26, 2017, as the perfect whiskey for those celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night.

The Hilhaven Lodge is an award winning whiskey created in partnership with renowned director and producer Brett Ratner. Inspired by Ratner’s home, The Hilhaven Lodge is a blend of three whiskeys, from three different decades, commemorating some of Hollywood’s most star-studded celebrations – many of which have taken place at the historic Hilhaven Lodge.

The fabric of Hollywood is woven throughout the estate – Hilhaven Lodge has been renowned as a posh playground for entertainment’s elite since 1927. Ingrid Bergman, Kim Novak, James Caan and Allan Carr are among the remarkable names to have called Hilhaven Lodge home before handing the keys off to Ratner in 1999.

Throughout the Oscars evening, in addition to The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey, Hollywood’s finest will also enjoy top shelf spirits from the Diageo Luxury Brands collection, including Cîroc Ultra-Premium Vodka, Tanqueray Premium Imported Gin, Johnnie Walker Scotch Whisky, and Zacapa Rum.

“The Oscar is the pinnacle of one of the world’s great art forms, honoring the best in cinematic storytelling,” said Dan Sanborn, SVP, Culture and Partnerships. “In honoring this great craft that brings joy to millions across the globe we are pleased to offer a toast with one of America’s greatest crafts, The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey.”

For the vodka drinkers among Tinseltown’s best, CÎROC will be offering a modern twist on the classic French 75 made with CÎROC Vodka, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup topped with champagne.

Following the award show, attendees at the Governors Ball after-party will enjoy The Hilhaven Lodge Old Fashioned, a classic cocktail for a timeless evening. For the contemporary whiskey enthusiast, The Road Less Traveled, features a mixture of Bourbon Vanilla Chai Tea, Burdock and Dandelion Soda starring The Hilhaven Lodge. The Lodge is a one-of-a-kind serve with The Hilhaven Lodge flash infused in a Japanese drip tower and then combined with Sweet Vermouth, Sherry and Chocolate Bitters for a show-stopping pour.

These cocktails make a statement for Hollywood’s most memorable evening, and are just as legendary for at-home Oscars viewing parties. Whether celebrating at the Governors Ball, or at home, The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey always encourages revelers to toast responsibly and ensure they have a safe ride home.
