Visitors will be able to buy an exclusive Ocho gift box, consisting of a bottle of Bacardí Reserva Ocho, two glasses, two ice ball moulds and a booklet with Bacardí ReservaOcho cocktail recipes by 8 of Belgium’s most renowned bartenders.

Everyone buying one of the ltd. edition boxes, albeit as a gift for someone else, also does him/herself a pleasure as with every purchase the client gets a cocktail voucher for one of the six selected bars (Dogma, Bar Zar, Black Smoke, Bar Burbure and Koks&Tales in Antwerp and Yi Chan in Brussels).

Besides that, every purchase (made after 13h) entitles the client to enter the speakeasy bar situated behind the shop…
