Loic De Laubriere, Marketing Director of HEINEKEN Cambodia, shared insights into the inspiration behind ABC Reserve: “With ABC Reserve, we’re targeting those dynamic occasions where modern consumers seek a touch of magic. It’s a departure from the ordinary, but ABC has always been at the forefront of innovation. We’re thrilled to see consumers awaken their palates and embark on extraordinary experiences with ABC Reserve.”

Crafted exclusively for Cambodia by ABC’s master brewer, ABC Reserve promises the same dedication to quality as its predecessor, Extra Stout. Utilizing premium barley malt and a subtle infusion of whisky, ABC Reserve boasts a luxurious amber hue, a tantalizing smoky aroma, and a robust, spicy flavor profile. Packaged in a sleek new design featuring signature copper accents, ABC Reserve exudes sophistication from bottle to brew.

Susanne Bose, Master Brewer of HEINEKEN Cambodia, elaborated on the meticulous crafting process: “Developing the recipe for ABC Reserve was a labor of love, guided by consumer feedback to achieve the perfect balance. Expect a full-bodied beer that delivers smoothness with a hint of warmth, reminiscent of the whisky experience but with its own unique charm.”

To unveil ABC Reserve in grand style, a collaboration with Phnom Penh’s esteemed Bar Menaka was orchestrated. Amidst the venue’s opulent ambiance, guests were treated to a curated evening of entertainment, blending diverse musical genres and captivating performances. From local sensation Ouk Sokunkanha to the electrifying beats of DJ Maily, the event crescendoed with an exclusive set by DJ Soda, captivating audiences with her international acclaim.

ABC Reserve will be exclusively available at select premium establishments across key cities in Cambodia, including Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kampong Cham, and Battambong.
