We chat with the women behind the stills of five Asia-produced spirits. By Holly Graham.
It’s not new news that the alcohol industry is a male-dominated one and while female bartenders are on the rise, women in distilling are a rarity. To mark International Women’s Day 2020 and celebrate the women behind these Asia-produced spirits, we profile five leading ladies in Asia’s distilling world: Marine Lucchini of Chalong Bay (Phuket); Moang “Champich” Darachampich of Samai (Phnom Penh); Charnelle Martins of Stranger & Sons (Goa); Dimple Yuen of Two Moons (Hong Kong) and Jamie Koh of Brass Lion (Singapore).
