The Azzurri’s Euro Triumph Is Equalled By These Magnificent Italian Wines

Italian wines seem to taste better when the Italy national football team emerge champions of Europe.  In the month of July, we pay tribute to Italy as champions of the UEFA Euro 2020 and the Eurovision Song contest. Therefore, Luc and I organised a dinner for 8 recently at our favourite Italian restaurant so that we could have an excuse to drink some nice Italian wines while indulging in delicious Italian cuisine.  Funnily enough, we both seldom explore wines from Italy because we are so French-focused especially in Burgundy wines. If I have to pick a wine for dinner,...

Mr Stork X: Andaz Singapore’s Rooftop Bar Is Enlisting Top Local Bartenders For Its Pop-Up Series

Most drinks – cocktails, specifically– served at the top of very tall buildings tend to be mediocre and loveless, trading on a romance-seeking clientele who just want a pretty view. Mr Stork is, however, a welcome break to my almost fatalistic attitude towards rooftop bars. Yes, it’s up in the sky, on the 39th floor of Andaz Singapore, and overlooks all of the CBD – but it also offers some ace pours. Panoramic sunset views of the city is a rather lovely thing to behold here, too, particularly as this floor, with its living greenery, cute teepee huts and beachy outdoor seats, makes you feel...

Pineapple Jalapeño? Alter Your Perceptions With Deliciously Flavoured Tequila

Justin Ng Digital Content Director, Kuala Lumpur These deliciously flavoured tequila expressions won’t transport you back to college days. Really! It is an inescapable phase in life. Not unlike puberty, cheap whisky and Jägerbomb, chasing tequila shots is a rite of passage. Those who weren’t too posh to lark around with college mates would reminisce about spontaneous grimacing that came after a potent trident comprising a shot of tequila, a pinch of salt and a wedge...

Covid Gives Birth To Kalsarikännit, The Esoteric Art Of Drinking In Your Undergarment

Many of us have drunk at home alone. In the solitude compelled by the onset of Covid-19, in lieu of dressing up to visit the bar, we have chosen to dress down. Imagine the scene: after a day’s work, you kick back on the couch in your underwear and crack open a bottle of something alcoholic. This may have happened to you already during the various covid lockdowns — or maybe still now. But this practice has a name — in Finland, at least — where Kalsarikännit basically means “drinking at home, alone, in your underwear.” And far from being shameful, this drinking ritual is, on the...

3 Refreshing Ways To Use Tonic In Cocktails Apart From The Classic Gin And Tonic

There are many reasons why the gin and tonic is a summer staple. First, it’s as refreshing as a cocktail can get. Thanks to the complex botanicals of gin and layered flavours of tonic, it’s quite sophisticated for a two-ingredient drink. Also, it’s easy. No fussing with a shaker or juicer or mixing glass. Grab some ice, stir, and go. But there’s an entire world of summer cocktails that tonic can star in. The balanced sweetness and complexity of a good brand, make tonic a true asset in cocktails. And since you might be looking to step out into the sun with a drink in...

Ao Yun 2017 Vintage: Setting A New Benchmark For Modern Winemaking

When Prestige first talked to winemaker Maxence Dulou in 2017, the second vintage of his Ao Yun wine had just hit the market, and with it, a growing reputation for China as a serious wine-producing contender. In within that short three years, China’s red wine consumption has only grown stronger (it is now dominating the market in the Asia-Pacific region) and Ao Yun — known as the first Grand Cru of the Himalayas — is cementing its place amongst the top producers around the world with its fifth and latest vintage: Ao Yun 2017. We speak to the estate and technical director for...

Why not to love about this culturally diverse region teeming with the friendliest people, most delectable cuisines,...

5 Hong Kong F&B Insiders Share Their Recipes for Bulletproof Summer Cocktails

“Three beverage managers, a spirits specialist, and food TV host walk into a bar.” The punchline? A quintet of surprisingly effortless drink recipes that will make you the MVP of every rooftop, terrace, and seafaring vessel this summer.   Dubbed by English humourist P.G. Wodehouse as “a misunderstood vitamin”, cocktails are to the mind of every sufficiently keen drinker a compelling panacea 365 days out of the year — more playful than a glass of vino, certainly less perilous than pure spirits. And unlike the latter two categories, neither heat nor cold can hope to put a damper on the inherently...
