Name a more iconic pair of jeans, we’ll wait.

In celebration of its 150th anniversary, a spectacular ‘501® Experience’ will be held at REX KL this Saturday, offering an exhilarating journey encompassing entertainment, retail, and other immersive engagements.

2. Cheers to good times with No. 3 London Dry Gin

Is Gin your go-to pick for some liquid courage and a good time? If your answer is a resounding “yes”, be sure to pop open a bottle of No. 3 London Dry Gin. After all, it is voted the World’s Best Gin for the fourth time and the first Gin to win the prestigious ‘Supreme Champion Spirit’ award at the International Spirits Challenge. Further, the drink now comes in a distinctive and eye-catching new bottle design; a hexagonal shape to represent each of the six botanicals in the No. 3 recipe and a crisp turquoise colour that reflects its refreshing flavours. With juniper at the fore supported by floral and summery notes, a spicy hint of cardamom and plenty of citrus ‘zing’ that’s finished with an earthy dryness of angelica, No. 3 Gin is perfect for the ultimate Dry Martini or classic G&T. The iconic key symbol remains front and centre, promising to unlock a great time every time. No.3 Gin is available at selected premium supermarkets, bars, and restaurants.
