London-based whisky bar Black Rock has crossed the seas and carved out a temporary home in Central.
Located inside “Frank’s Library” at Foxglove, the pop-up bar offers single malts from Highland and Speyside whiskies, along with some extremely rare malts from the Diageo library.
Dubbed “London’s best whisky bar”, Black Rock is co-owned by industry veterans Tom Aske and Tristan Stephenson, who take a unique approach to storing whiskies.
Selections are grouped by descriptions, which include balance, fragrance, fruit, smoke, spice and sweet.
Drinks are served on a monumental 12-foot-long table, which is by far the most distinctive feature of the bar. It houses two rivulets of whisky – Morello cherries and spices on one side and a house-style blend on the other.
Items on the menu include Hong Kong-flavoured dishes made by local chefs. For every dish sold, $10 will be donated to charity.
Apart from The Singleton, other classics on offer include Johnnie Walker King George V, Lagavulin, Glenkinchie and Cragganmore.
The pop-up bar is open from 22 July to 5 August.
“Hong Kong has such an amazing selection of bars and it’s such a great opportunity to be part of that for a short period of time,” says Aske.
