The newly opened McKinley Whisky Park is bringing a whole new whisky experience to patrons through a curated selection of whisky products and concoctions, along with a wide array of food choices, games, and entertainment that can all be enjoyed in an open-air setting.

The first outdoor liquor park of its kind in Asia, the brand-new leisure destination is situated inside the 34.5-hectare McKinley West township and across McKinley Hill in Taguig City.

It features three major zones – a sprawling Main Ground, a Quiet Zone, and an Activity Zone – and houses a dedicated Craft Bar, as well as food outlets and its very own whisky shop.

"We are excited to open Asia's first outdoor liquor park and delight our customers with its unique offerings found nowhere else," said Kendrick L. Tan, executive director, Emperador Inc. "More than educating and increasing the appreciation of Filipino consumers for whisky, our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where people can come together, relax, and enjoy each other's company over some delicious food, entertainment, and the best whisky products."

Dominating the landscape inside the 4,000-square meter outdoor liquor park is the Main Ground, which has a seating capacity of 500 people and a giant screen that lets visitors watch live sports action, tournaments, and other exciting sporting events. The Main Ground can also host live musical performances from talented artists and musicians from Newport World Resorts.

Adjacent to the Main Ground is the Quiet Zone, where guests can relax a bit and enjoy casual conversations while enjoying their food and signature craft cocktails from the Craft Bar.

McKinley Whisky Park also features an Activity Zone where guests can engage in some friendly competition and exciting sports activities, including billiards, basketball arcade, whisky pong, and many more.

The highlight of the new liquor park is the Whisky Shop, where guests can explore and choose their drink from the scotch whiskies by Whyte and Mackay. Also available at the venue is one of the widest selections of whisky products and labels from around the world – from approachable whiskies to exclusively aged single malt blends. With the help of expert bartenders, guests can also explore and learn how to mix their own special whisky cocktails to their own liking.

A curated menu that perfectly matches the whisky selection is available at the Food Outlets. Guests can choose from various food merchants offering various dishes, snacks, and other delightful food pairings, including Guagua's Best, Potato Corner, Fofo Chicken, JAP Street Food, R. Lapids, Sisig sa Rada, Mad Dogs, Serrano, Hungry Koreano, and ManokMan.

Headlining the impressive roster of whisky products that guests can enjoy at the Whisky Park is Charles & James Light Whisky.

The perfect entry product into the world of whisky, Charles & James is a distilled whisky drink and aged in oak barrels, expertly crafted for exceptional richness. Its light, smooth, and sweet taste at 25 percent ABV is specifically made for the Filipino palate as the ideal stepping stone to the world of whisky.

This exceptional new product hails from the distinguished portfolio of the Whyte and Mackay Group under Emperador Inc., the largest global brandy company owning the world's iconic and best-selling brandy, Emperador Brandy.

McKinley Whisky Park is located along Lombard St., McKinley West, Taguig City and is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. and on Sundays at 12 noon to 10 p.m. Admission is free.
