While bars are temporarily closed, Hong Kong mixologists and distilleries are getting creative to make sure that patrons will not get thirsty during the dry season. Among the many bottle collaborations that are popping up in the market is the recently launched Five Flowers Tea Limited Edition Dry Gin, a project of Hong Kong’s first craft gin distillery, Two Moons, and multi-sensory bar, Room 309.
Inspired by age-old Hong Kong remedies, Five Flowers Tea Limited Edition Dry Gin ($600) bears the distinct floral, and herbal notes of the traditional herbal tea made with honeysuckle, chrysanthemum, silk cotton, Plumeria rubra, and Pueraria lobata. The special release is available in the market for a limited quantity of 150 (700ml) bottles.
