Delivering classic sophistication in both cuisine and guest experience, Council Oak Steaks & Seafood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s award-winning signature steakhouse, bar and lounge, has expanded its One Ounce Club luxury spirits program. The newest complements to the One Ounce Club’s premium selections include exclusive pours from a rare bottle of limited edition Pappy Van Winkle 25, and two ultra-high-end tableside cocktails using Remy Martin Louis XIII and Macallan Rare Cask.
With only 710 bottles produced and only six found in the state of Florida, Council Oak is home to a bottle of the limited edition Pappy Van Winkle. Guests can sip on this exclusive pour as part of the restaurant’s One Ounce Club for $495. Fit for bourbon enthusiasts and spirits connoisseurs, the restaurant is also launching “The Ultimate Pappy Experience” flight ($375) highlighting half-ounce pours of Pappy Van Winkle’s 20-year, 23-year and 25-year varieties. Pappy Van Winkle 25 is the oldest and most expensive bourbon bottle produced by the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery. Distilled in 1989, the bourbon was stored at the Van Winkle family distillery before it was moved to the Buffalo Trace Distillery in 2002 where it continued to age for another 12 years.
Emphasizing its commitment to superior service and offering an immersive experience to guests, Council Oak’s tableside cocktails showcases “cocktail showmanship.” French for “13”, the Treize ($195) features Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac, Ciroc X “Ten” Vodka, Grand Marnier and Eiswein. The ingredients are mixed, stirred and poured tableside and topped with an elegant 24k gold flake garnish. For a lavish riff on a classic, the Smoked Rare Manhattan ($95) features Macallan Rare Cask Single Malt Whisky, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, orange bitters, sugar cube and smoked cinnamon sticks. The cocktail is then mixed, smoked tableside and poured over an ice sphere.
