On Monday (April 22, 2024), oneworld® announced the introduction of a new signature cocktail called ‘The 25’ in celebration of the global airline alliance’s 25th anniversary.  Created by Ago Perrone, the world-renowned Director of Mixology at The Connaught Bar in Mayfair, London, the cocktail was first served at the Soho Lounge, part of British Airways and American Airlines Joint Premium Lounges at New York-JFK’s Terminal 8.  The bespoke libation will be available to oneworld Emerald and First Class guests traveling on alliance member flights.  New York-JFK’s Terminal 8 is home to nine oneworld airlines, including American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, and Royal Jordanian.  This year marks the 25th anniversary of the oneworld alliance, which was founded in 1999 by American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qantas.


In Monday’s announcement, oneworld’s CEO, Nat Pieper, said,


“We’re raising a glass to our 25th anniversary milestone with these unique mixes for oneworld premium customers.  We believe ‘The 25’ captures the spirit of adventure which has defined oneworld’s impressive growth over the last quarter of a century.  We’re excited about celebrating in style with our loyal customers in our branded oneworld and First Class lounges around the world.  Inspired by the finest ingredients, ‘The 25’ embodies the essence of oneworld's commitment to excellence, shared vision, and true collaboration across oneworld member airlines.”


Also commenting on the introduction of ‘The 25’, The Connaught Bar’s Director of Mixology, Ago Perrone, said,


“It was important to create a cocktail which caught the essence of travel and blended with the personality of the oneworld alliance passengers.  Travel is often a source of inspiration for me, and on this occasion it guided me in the creation of the oneworld cocktail – ‘The 25’ - using a subtle blend of London Dry Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Bitter, Mezcal and The Connaught Orange Grove essential oil, conveying both elegance and sophistication through iconic ingredients of some of the countries that are close to my heart.


“Just one sip of it takes you on a journey that starts from the Mediterranean before landing in Mexico, then going through London to the U.S., making ‘The 25’ a flavoursome cocktail to savour and celebrate.”

Additionally, a specially curated refreshing mocktail version of ‘The 25’ has been unveiled, which features non-alcoholic London Dry Gin, Cranberry Juice, Mediterranean Tonic, and the unique oneworld and The Connaught Orange Grove essential oil.  Both beverages will be served in participating First Class Lounges across the oneworld network globally, and also at oneworld branded lounges at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Seoul Incheon during May and June 2024.  The alliance will also release a special edition of a collection of oneworld member airlines’ signature cocktails as part of oneworld’s 25th anniversary celebrations.


Celebrated Italian-born Mixologist Ago Perrone moved to London 2003, and made a name for himself across a range of creative independent bars before leading the opening of The Connaught Bar in 2008.  His innovative approach to five-star hotel mixology has sealed his reputation as one of the world’s leading mixologists.
