GudSht has been bringing the bar to consumers since Circuit Breaker, created by bartenders of Elite Bar Solutions for consumers to enjoy strong alcoholic beverages with interesting yet familiar themes from the comfort of home.
We had our first taste of GudSht cocktails in July when we received a care pack from our friends at iShopChangi.com. It was the Cheng Tng Gao. Available at S$59.90 for a 450ml bottle from iShopChangi.com. Should have gotten myself and ice shavings machine. Add some of ice shavings to this cocktail and it would have been perfect. The Cheng Tng Gao contains Courvoisier VS, Amaretto Liquer and freshly boiled cheng tng.
Travelling seems to be out of the question right now, so GudSht has collaborated with iShopChangi.com to create the Wanderlust Collection. Five handcrafted cocktails have been created, inspired by getaway destinations around Southeast Asia including Boracay in the Philippines, Ubud in Bali, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
