Two cocktail legends come together to share their passion and knowledge with Hong Kong’s bar industry.

As part of Hong Kong’s Pisco Nights campaign, Dale DeGroff aka King Cocktail and Taipei cocktail legend Aki Wang came together to deliver two masterclasses and a guest shift to teach the city’s bar industry everything they know about the spirit of Peru.

The pair shared their pisco passion and knowledge with Hong Kong’s bar industry movers and shakers at cocktail bar J.Boroski hosted by Brent Flowers, then at restaurant Ichu Peru hosted by Massimo Petovello. Friday night saw the pair hold court at The Sea by The Old Man, with Aki behind the stick serving the below creations:
