Charles H. at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul Launches Its Fifth Cocktail-Inspired Craft Beer, Coconut Grove

Seoul, Korea

This spring, the Best Bar in Korea has launched its new craft beer, Coconut Grove, taking inspiration from the Piña Colada. Now available at Charles H. at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, Coconut Grove is the fifth cocktail-inspired beer in the Companion Series created in collaboration with Magpie Brewing Co., following Le 75, The New Yorker, Distrito Federal and the Londoner.

This unique, cocktail-inspired beer all began with one question in mind: "What sort of experimental flavour would Charles H. Baker, a traveller and a writer of global cocktail authority, have for a beer?" With this question in mind, the next instalment of the Charles H. bar team’s cocktail-inspired beer comes to life. Inspired by the tropical Piña Colada cocktail, the Coconut Grove is a tropical combination that embodies a true essence of Miami.  Coconut Grove is primarily barley and a portion of wheat-based beer that enhances the body and provides a softness to the tongue.

With the combination of amarillo and simcoe hops, it offers a light bitterness and fruit flavour, aged on rum-soaked toasted coconut flakes, vanilla beans and soaked American oak spirals; the Coconut Grove boasts the complex and multi-dimensional flavours of the Piña Colada cocktail.

“All of the previous Charles H.’s cocktail-inspired beers have been a huge success and adding in our latest addition, the Coconut Grove, we continue our search to create a unique and indulging journey for both cocktail connoisseurs looking for artisanal spirts and ‘beeroissuers’ craving for something new,” says Keith Motsi, Head Bartender at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul.

Coconut Grove is priced at KRW 18,000 per bottle. For reservations, call +82 2 6388 5500.
