It was a great opportunity for me to be able to immerse myself in an authentic sensorial experience of the mountains as I invigorate my senses in the world of Edelweiss at its new flagship outlet in Genting Highlands. Edelweiss, the premium wheat beer born in the Alps, has embarked on its #FeelTheAps journey to inspire fans to actively seek new discoveries and a fresh outlook in their lives and cities.
While the hashtag #FeelTheAlps is gaining traction with fans taking their brand-new discoveries and adventures with Edelweiss to social media, Edelweiss continues to bring refreshing experiences into the city with the launch of the Edelweiss flagship outlet, The Alps bar, in Genting Highlands.
Located at Sky Avenue Mall, The Alps bar was launched today in the presence of the management team of Heineken Malaysia Berhad – Roland Bala, Managing Director, Pablo Chabot, Marketing Director, and Vasily Baranov, Sales Director. With them were Thaddeus Huang and Tan Koon Lin, owners of The Alps bar as well as Dato’ Edward Holloway, Executive Vice President, Leisure and Hospitality of Genting Malaysia.
The modern and sophisticated bar was majestically decked out to depict the essence of the Alps, and a highlight was the breath-taking view experienced from the first floor as they enjoyed a cold Edelweiss that truly brought the #FeelTheAlps experience to new heights.
Every corner of The Alps bar was Instagrammable for guests to capture their #FeelTheAlps experience. They were served with delectable Austrian dishes to accompany their ice-cold refreshing Edelweiss, and to top it off, guests got to evoke their playful side with the exciting claw machine game to score exclusive prizes such as free stays in Genting Highlands, food and beverage vouchers, an at-home Blade Machine experience, and various other Edelweiss merchandise.
At the event, guests were able to understand the Edelweiss brand better. They learned about the all-natural ingredients and the blend of fresh mountain herbs which makes Edelweiss as distinctive as it is. Guests then had the opportunity to tap their own Edelweiss from the exclusive Blade Machine and taste the fresh finish and subtle, fruity aftertaste to really immerse themselves in the experience.
“Edelweiss wants to inspire its fans to explore new adventures and experiences, and our aim is to provide different drinking experiences to our drinkers. As such, with the opening of our flagship outlet, The Alps, our fans’ experiences will reach greater altitudes with every sip of Edelweiss, especially when they get to pour themselves a cold one from the Blade Machine. For fans in other major cities of Malaysia, Edelweiss pop-up bars will be activated at outlets near them too,” said Pablo Chabot, Marketing Director of HEINEKEN Malaysia.
The #FeelTheAlps Edelweiss experience is not only available at The Alps bar in Genting Highlands, but also at various pop-up bars in Penang, Johor, and Klang Valley regions. Updates on the pop-up bars can be found on Edelweiss’ Facebook and Instagram pages.
