Halloween is almost here, and while you might have children knocking at your door for sweets, there’s no reason you can’t indulge in a few treats yourself.
From decadent cakes to vintage champagnes, we’ve curated some of the best options for a grown up Halloween when you shop with Cathay. As part of the October food and wine promotion, you’ll be able to purchase a wide range of delicacies and save up to 25% when you pay with cash, or 20% when you redeem with your miles. It's the ideal time to stock up on holiday food for the season ahead, especially if you’re throwing a party or two.
It doesn’t get more indulgent than this. Ditch the sweets and upgrade to something decadent with a golden tin from Reign, filled with Caspian Sea-farmed caviar. Even amongst caviar aficionados, this is a special treat – the eggs are harvested from Osetra sturgeons, which take nearly two decades to mature and begin producing eggs.
The Glenlivet is a beautiful expression of a Speyside whisky, having spent 18 years dividing its time between both American oak and sherry casks. The result is an award-winning dram that merges rich, honeyed and fruity notes with a spiced oak finish.

Having a Halloween party? Impress your friends with this Hong Kong take on a tropical cake by French patissier Dominique Ansel. Shaped like Hong Kong’s iconic pineapple buns (down to a generous faux slab of butter), slice into this creation and you’ll discover a delicious centre of pineapple, lime and passionfruit jam surrounded by mascarpone cream and coconut sponge.
If you’re going sweet at Halloween, go classy with this rainbow selection of macarons from Paul Lafaeyet. With an eclectic range of flavours ranging from chocolate, to creme brulée or mango jasmine, this six-piece set is the perfect emergency treat to stash away at the office.
Have something savoury for dessert this year and opt for Feather and Bone’s premium cheese and charcuterie selection. Simplify setting up your party cheeseboard with their cheesemonger-curated range, which includes crowd-pleasers such as comté and stilton, as well as lesser-known cheeses such as the flavour-packed morbier and mimolette. Accompanied by prosciutto, salami, crackers and more, it’s a surefire win at any dinner party.
