United Airlines brings more premium beverages on board

United Airlines said it is expanding its selection of premium beverages to offer customers two new options.

The airline now offers Chicago-based Crafthouse Cocktails´ Moscow Mule on United-operated North and Central America flights, and Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey on flights worldwide.

Produced with all-natural ingredients, Crafthouse Cocktails´ Moscow Mule contains small-batch vodka; ginger beer made with organic ginger juice; pure California lime juice; and real cane sugar. Crafthouse´s take on the Moscow Mule — a classic vodka cocktail — is also gluten-free.

Made from corn, rye and barley malt, Buffalo Trace´s bourbon whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years, giving this spirit a rich and complex taste, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit.

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of nearly 5,000 flights a day to 362 airports across six continents. More than 84,000 United employees reside in every US state and in countries around the world.
