‘London’s best whisky bar’ makes its way to Hong Kong


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.
