(PRESS RELEASE)_Brightline has announced the return of The Tasting Train for a special Art Basel edition. Taking place Friday, December 7, Brightline has partnered with Perrier Jouet and Absolute Elyx to bring riders an evening of champagne, specialty cocktails and nonstop entertainment. New to this edition of The Tasting Train is performances by Miami’s own Karla Croqueta, Charlie Chaplin, live contortionists and DJs all aboard the train. This immersive journey, perfect for lovers of art and luxury spirits, begins in West Palm Beach on board Brightline's 7 p.m. train, with Perrier Jouet sampling along the entire route to Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
The Tasting Train experience continues with a visual feast upon arrival at Brightline Miami Central Station’s Select Lounge and the signature copper embellishments of Absolute Elyx set against incredible views of Biscayne Bay and the Downtown Miami skyline. This lively reception will feature live music, multiple tasting stations serving Perrier Jouet and signature Absolute Elyx cocktails; carefully selected cuisine options will be served as you enjoy the libations, all included with ticket purchase.
