Disney’s $5,000 Star Wars Cocktail Includes Pappy Van Winkle
A “Star Wars” cocktail aboard Disney’s new ship, the Disney Wish, costs about $5,000.
The cost isn’t just for the drink, which is called Kaiburr Crystal and is served in the ship’s “Hyperspace Lounge.” They include the shooting glasses in which they are offered, room amenities, and a trip to the Skywalker Vineyards at Skywalker Ranch, according to theme parks and travel writer Arthur Levine.
Here’s a look at the container the glasses come in, from journalist Ashley Carter, who covers theme parks for Spectrum News 13 in Orlando:

That’s different from Disney’s new “Star Wars” hotel, the Galactic Starcruiser, which launched earlier this year — but that’s also on the pricey side. Costs over $4,800 for two cabin guests.
Levin’s details were reported on Friday in his About amusement parks Newsletter about what’s in Disney Wish’s pricey Kaiburr Crystal.
Kaiburr Crystal includes Casmus Cognac, Grand Marnier Quintessence, Yuzu citrus fruits and kumquat. Footage of the Pappy Van Winkle family’s 23-year preserve bourbon and Port Taylor’s Fladgate Kingsman Edition Tawny is also included in the container, according to Levine.
Family Reserve is listed on Van Winkle’s Website for $300. The demand for the Kentucky distillery is so high that some retailers are selling their bottles of different types of whiskey at much higher than the recommended price.
Disney Wish will debut on July 14th.
