Hong Kong Whisky Festival returns for second year



Calling all whisky lovers, the Hong Kong Whisky Festival is returning on 4 March at the InterContinental Grand Stanford and Tiffany’s New York Bar in Tsim Sha Tsui.

With the inaugural edition drawing a large crowd, there was demand for the whisky festival to return.

This time, though, the Hong Kong Whisky Festival will have over 110 brands, while there will be more than 400 different whisky expressions — a different version of the same whiskey.

As if that isn’t enough, the event will also feature 16 masterclasses and a VIP class for true whisky connoisseurs. Also lookout for an award-winning mixologist performance at the Chivas pop-up bar at Tiffany’s New York Bar, a barrel assembling demonstration and the dram shop, where people can purchase over 300 different bottles of whisky.

“Last year we organised the inaugural Hong Kong Whisky Festival, and it was an overwhelming success as it received a lot of positive feedback from our participants and partners, and from that we really see a great whisky culture in Hong Kong and it grows daily with interest,” John Drummond, resident manager and whisky ambassador of InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong, said.

The whisky exhibition will be held from 12pm to 8pm on 4 March, while the Chivas pop-up bar will run from 3pm to 11pm.

For those interested, tickets will cost HK$250 and come with a complimentary Glencairn whisky glass. As for the masterclass, it costs between HK$250 to HK$350.
