Each cask is individually constructed from a mix of 5 different types of wood, including unusual oak varieties and even chestnut. It is a blend of rich, unusual new flavours – a absolute riot of wood, which is exactly what allows this unusual hybrid whiskey to pair so perfectly with different varieties of wood.   On the nose –whiffs of red plum, hints of pear, red apple, tropical fruits, and warm Mediterranean caramel spice. On the palate –savour notes of vanilla charred oak, ripe mango with caramelised tropical fruits, chocolate caramel, and lingering sun-dried raisin and fig. The finish is both spicy and sweet, with hints of nutmeg, orange, clove, floral sweet honeycomb, and syrupy pineapple.   “Our team is extremely proud of this collaboration.

INTRODUCING THE MACALLAN EDITION NO.6 – A WHISKY INSPIRED BY A LEGENDARY RIVER

2020-10-23
  On October 22 and 23, The Macallan celebrated the launch of The Macallan Edition No.6 at K11 Art & Cultural Centre. The Macallan Edition No.6 is a new limited edition single malt whisky that celebrates the natural wonders of The Macallan Estate and the vibrant lifeforce that sustains it – the River Spey.   Hosted by Patricia Byott, Brand Ambassador for The Macallan Hong Kong, the unveiling of the Edition No. 6 was a feast for the senses where guests enjoyed a gastronomic meal pairing with The Macallan while overlooking the beautiful Victoria Harbour – a spiritual representation of the Spey.  It was an unforgettable event to experience the real beauty and power of nature complemented by an exceptional and peerless spirit.   Marking the sixth and final release in The Macallan Edition Series, Edition No.6 tells the story of a unique land and an extraordinary river, where whisky making, agriculture and nature all live in total harmony.  It brings together The Macallan’s Ghillie, Robert Mitchell; Hardy, the world’s most renowned fly fishing brand; and The Atlantic Salmon Trust, which has over 50 years’ experience in salmon conservation.   The Macallan Estate lies on the banks of the River Spey, one of Scotland’s most legendary rivers renowned across the world as a home to the mighty Atlantic salmon.  A day on this river, with its pure water, stunning wild landscape and calmness is a once in a lifetime experience.   The Macallan’s Ghillie, Robert Mitchell is the guardian of The Macallan’s stretch of the River Spey and takes great pride in his role caring for the river. He said: “A day on the River Spey is supremely special.  You feel that you are escaping from everything and truly connecting with nature and with our Distillery completing this stunning landscape, there is no other place in the world capable of drawing so many wonders together.  We are proud custodians of our one-and-three-quarter mile stretch of the River Spey and advocate for sustainability of the wildlife in and around it and so all fishing at The Macallan is catch and release.”   Inspired by the remarkable experience offered by the Spey, The Macallan Whisky Maker, Steven Bremner, created Edition No.6 by choosing five cask styles that embody unique stories related to the river and its unparalleled natural landscape.  Crafted from a combination of American and European oak sherry seasoned casks, Edition No.6 captures the River Spey’s energy; the warm, welcoming personality of The Macallan’s Ghillie; the classic craftsmanship of Hardy; the extraordinary life of the Atlantic salmon on the beat; and the mastery of whisky making on The Macallan Estate, which has taken place since 1824. The result is a multifaceted whisky delivering aromas of fresh fruits, nutmeg and toffee merged with oak and flavours of ripe plum, vibrant sweet oranges and cinnamon, developing into spicy fresh fruits and creamy chocolate and toasted oats at the finish.   Steven Bremner, The Macallan Whisky Maker, said: “From its early days of whisky making almost 200 years ago, The Macallan has been strongly inspired by and intrinsically connected to nature. It is the force that flows through everything we do at The Macallan and our whisky is enriched by its powerful presence.  Edition No.6 is inspired by the natural world surrounding our Distillery, which has so much to offer and enjoy, in particular the River Spey, which is so vibrant, and full of energy.   “This complex single malt provides the perfect conclusion to the Edition Series as there is so much to discover in this whisky. The natural colour of antique brass derived from The Macallan’s exceptional oak casks indicates the richness of flavour that awaits and there is a structure and depth that is uncovered more and more over time.”   To protect the magical sense of the Spey that lies at the heart of Edition No.6, The Macallan has launched a new charitable partnership with The Atlantic Salmon Trust to help to conserve the at-risk fish, whose numbers have declined so rapidly in recent years.   The Atlantic Salmon Trust is protecting wild salmon and sea trout wherever they roam, especially in places like the River Spey, by tracking their migration across thousands of km from their dominion to the open oceans.  As a guardian of one of the last sanctuaries of Scottish salmon, The Macallan is supporting The Trust’s vital conservation work on the River Spey and beyond.   The Edition Series explores the unique and defining elements which make The Macallan one of the world’s most revered single malts. Each release reveals the detail of whisky making and showcases the absolute skill of the whisky maker, while sharing the story of The Macallan’s exceptional oak casks and mastery behind the perfect cask selection since 1824.    The Macallan Edition No.6 has an RRSP of HK$1103 and will be available in major wine and spirit retailers in Hong Kong starting from Oct 2020.     Whisky Maker’s Notes: ABV: 48.6% Colour: Antique brass Aroma: Rich fresh fruits, nutmeg, ginger, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, and oak Palate: Plum and sweet orange, cinnamon, nutmeg, balanced oak, toffee, and oats Finish: Long fresh fruit with spices turning to creamy chocolate and toasted oats         Additional Information   The River Spey The River Spey is a proud symbol of Scotland, flowing for 107 miles northeast across the Highlands into the North Sea.   It rises at about 1,150 feet in the Corrieyairack Forest and derives tributaries from the Monadhliath Mountains, the Grampian Mountains, and the Cairngorms. In the wider, lower valley of Strathspey, it swings between great sweeps of terraces and finally enters the sea by a shifting mouth across a shingle spit between Buckie and Lossiemouth.   The ninth longest river in the UK, and the third longest and fastest flowing river in Scotland, the Spey is one of the country’s most legendary rivers, renowned across the world as a home to the mighty Atlantic salmon. Wild Atlantic salmon are at risk of becoming an endangered species and the River Spey has the largest salmon population in Scotland. It is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest.   The River Spey has played a fundamental role in The Macallan’s history and heritage. The distillery’s location was originally selected in 1824 due to its proximity to the river as it could provide the natural water resource – a key ingredient in the production process. To this day, the river provides an extraordinary source of inspiration for The Macallan.     The Macallan Fishing Beat The Macallan Estate lies on the banks of the River Spey and has over 1.8 miles of river running through the estate. As a landowner adjacent to the river, The Macallan has its own Fishing Beat on the Spey, where guests can fish for salmon under the watchful eye of The Macallan Ghillie.   The River Spey is recognised as one of the finest fly fishing rivers in Europe, attracting fishermen from across the globe. Located in the valley just below the distillery, The Macallan Fishing Beat features beautiful pools, including a 25ft deep tunnel pool in the middle, and offers a majestic location, where visitors can truly connect with nature while enjoying one of the world’s greatest rivers,   The Macallan is a proud custodian of its stretch of the River Spey, and advocates for sustainability of the wildlife in and around it. With a 100% return of its fish, all fishing at The Macallan is, and always will be, catch and release, and all fish are treated with the utmost respect and care during that time.                           About The Macallan Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the worlds’ most admired and awarded single malt whiskies. The reputation of The Macallan is based on a product of outstanding quality and distinctive character. An obsession with excellence has been the hallmark of The Macallan since its founding, by Alexander Reid, on a plateau above the river Spey in north-east Scotland.   In May 2018, The Macallan unveiled its new £140 million distillery and visitor experience on its Speyside estate, increasing investment in whisky, warehousing and in The Macallan’s signature sherry-seasoned oak casks.  The striking contemporary architecture, cut into the slope of the land, takes its cues from ancient Scottish hills.  It stands nearby Easter Elchies House, the Highland Manor built in 1700 which has been The Macallan’s spiritual home since 1824.  The new distillery marks an important milestone, recognising the significant journey of The Macallan since 1824 and marking an exciting new chapter in the evolution of the luxury single malt.”   For more information on The Macallan, please follow the website, our Facebook fan page or Instagram. http://www.themacallan.com http://www.facebook.com/themacallan.hk http://instagram.com/themacallanhk

THE HOUSE OF KRUG PRESENTS KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2006 & DU SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE EN 2006 ACTE I

2020-10-23
  The House of Krug is delighted to present Krug From Soloist to Orchestra in 2006 – three creations that honor the year 2006: Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006, Krug 2006 and Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition. This is a special tribute to this remarkable year and to the unique craftsmanship of the House of Krug, which enables the creation of different expressions of nature, all of the same level of distinction.   The Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 exalts the purity of a single walled plot of Chardonnay harvested in 2006, a virtuoso soloist – while Krug 2006 is an ensemble of musicians playing the music of the year. Finally, Krug Grande Cuvée 162ème Édition, composed around the harvest of 2006 with wines from 11 different years, is the full orchestra playing the most complete symphony Champagne can perform.   THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF 2006 The year 2006 was considered a hot one in Champagne, with extreme highs and 23 days recorded over 30°C. It was a capricious climate that went from dry periods to intense rainfall, and in August, the equivalent of 2 months of rain fell within only 2 weeks. The sun returned to complete the ripening period, shining on a beautiful harvest. The natural harvest showed beautifully mature generous grapes with a balance similar to those of 2002 and 1989, making the year 2006 an exceptional one.   KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 2006: THE SOLOIST Krug’s Clos du Mesnil perpetuates the nonconformist spirit of Joseph Krug, founder of the House of Krug. It epitomises the House’s singular approach to Champagne making, which involves an in-depth knowledge of each plot and its individual wine, in order to create a Champagne of the undisputed quality envisioned by the founder.   The Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 is the result of a single grape variety, a single year, and a single historic vineyard that has been protected by walls since 1698 and is located in the heart of Mesnil-sur-Oger, one of the most iconic villages for Chardonnay in the Champagne region. The highly unique circumstances of 2006 lent the year’s grapes a rare beauty and poise, which expresses the music of this 1.84-hectare walled plot. The House of Krug chose to create Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 with the promise of revealing the full potential of this walled plot of vines (clos in French) of a single grape variety – Chardonnay – from a single year, 2006.   At first sight, Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 emits a vibrant luminosity and an intense golden colour redolent of ripe wheat. On the nose, savour delicate aromas of citrus, barley sugar, and dried fruits with balance and freshness. On the palate, the wine is generous and round with beautiful intensity, with initial hints of madeleine cake and brioche that give way to notes of pastry, tarte tain, lemon meringue, bitter orange, and some spice. The finish is long, with great tension and notes of candied ginger. Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 pairs beautifully with fish or shellfish dishes such as fillet of flounder in saffron sauce, zander with beurre blanc, seared scallops, or tuna carpaccio. It may also be enjoyed with delicately flavoured meat dishes such as a classical blanquette de veau, or French veal ragu.    DU SOLISTE À L'ORCHESTRE EN 2006 ACTE I To the delight of Krug Lovers all over the world, Krug Clos Du Mesnil 2006 will now be available in a limited-edition oak case comprising three 75cl bottles of Krug’s creations from the year 2006. Each limited edition hand-crafted case is a tribute both to the remarkable year of 2006 and the unique craftsmanship of the House of Krug that enables the creation of different expressions of nature and music, all of the same level of distinction.   KRUG ID: EVERY BOTTLE OF KRUG CHAMPAGNE HAS A STORY TO TELL Since 2011, the House invites Champagne lovers to enter the Krug iD – six digits printed on the back label of every Krug bottle – in a dedicated section of the Krug website, using the Krug App, via Twitter or Google, to take their experience one step further. The Krug iD reveals a detailed story of the Krug bottle, the Cellar Master’s impressions of the year, Krug x Music Pairing suggestions, food pairing inspiration, as well as recommendations for ideal storage and service to enhance every tasting of Krug Champagne. As a House with a contemporary spirit and a history of pioneering, Krug continues to embrace digital innovation and its potential to disrupt and delight.   COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY Built upon a vision of uncompromising quality and respect for craftsmanship, viticulture and terroir, the House of Krug continues to uphold its longstanding commitment to the environment. Krug is the first Maison of LVMH to be certified Positive Luxury, due to its environmentally sound practices in vineyards, as well as among its partners, suppliers and employees. Sustainable viticulture means no herbicide is used, and vines are given organic fertilization only, while 100% of plots are planted with inter-row grass to curtail soil erosion. In order to optimise energy consumption, House has switched from oil to water-running compressors and banned air transport. Finally, the House has fashioned a unique giftbox that is 100% eco-friendly, requiring much less energy to produce and avoiding waste as it fits a wide range of Krug Champagnes.   Note to Editors Krug Clos du Mesnil 2006 is currently available for purchase in Avize Champagne Cellar (HK$8,880) and at The Fine Wine Experience (HK$8,200).   ABOUT THE HOUSE OF KRUG Krug has always lived up to its reputation as the first and still unique Champagne House to create only Prestige Champagne every year since its foundation. The House was founded in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to offer the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual climate variations. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfill his dream. With a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the most generous expression of Champagne every year. Thus, he founded a House in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction, each illustrating a particular expression of nature.

IWC PRESENTS PILOT’S WATCH CHRONOGRAPH TOP GUN EDITION “SFTI” IN BLACK CERAMIC AND CERATANIUM

2020-10-19
  IWC Schaffhausen complements its TOP GUN range of Pilot’s Watches with the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “SFTI”. The new model takes inspiration from the “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor” watch, which was created in 2018 in honor of the US Naval Aviation Community and is available only for TOPGUN graduates. Thanks to the combination of a black ceramic case with a Ceratanium® case back and pushers, the sporty chronograph boasts a tactical, matte black design code.   In 2018, IWC created the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor” in collaboration with instructors based on Naval Air Station Leemore in California. Featuring a case made of black ceramic and the iconic TOPGUN patch on the dial, the rugged chronograph is available exclusively for graduates of the Navy Fighter Weapons School. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “SFTI”, limited to 1500 pieces, takes inspiration from the acclaimed “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor“ watch. It follows the tradition of IWC’s TOP GUN watches. It is made with extraordinarily robust materials to withstand the extreme strain that pilots experience in the cockpit of supersonic jets like the F/A-18 Super Hornet. The large 44-millimeter case is made of black zirconium oxide ceramic. With a Vickers rating second only to that of a diamond, ceramic ranks among the hardest substances on earth. It is extremely scratch-resistant and its stealthy black color is totally anti-reflective. The case back and chronograph pushers are made of Ceratanium®, a recent innovation from IWC’s materials engineers. This new material is as light and durable as titanium but at the same time as similarly hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic. Thanks to the combination of ceramic and Ceratanium®, the chronograph boasts an entirely matte black design. The tactical look is completed by a black dial and black hands coated with luminescence. The small second hand and the tail of the chronograph second hand, which takes the form of a jet, add a touch of red to the instrument-style dial. Ticking away inside the sturdy case is the IWC manufactured 69380 calibre. The robust chronograph movement in classic column-wheel design ensures precise timekeeping and the measurement of stopwatch times of up to 12 hours. Another function is a date and weekday display. The sporty timepiece is fitted with a green textile strap.   IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralised production of mechanical watches in Switzerland. Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specialises in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life. IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimise its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment for all employees. IWC also partners with organisations that work globally to support children and young people.  

TATE DINING ROOM’S CHEF VICKY LAU UNVEILS “AN ODE TO TEA” 7-COURSE SINGLE-INGREDIENT FRI + SAT LUNCH MENU

2020-10-14
      TATE DINING ROOM’S CHEF VICKY LAU UNVEILS “AN ODE TO TEA”, THE LATEST 7-COURSE SINGLE-INGREDIENT FRIDAY + SATURDAY LUNCH MENU  1-Michelin-starred TATE Dining Room presents a refined single-ingredient lunch menu with an innovative French Chinese twist. Following a successful series of An Ode to Eggs, An Ode to Rice, and the most recent An Ode to Tofu, Chef-patron Vicky Lau now shines the spotlight on Asia’s most revered time-honored tradition – the art of drinking TEA.   An Ode to Tea elevates the tea drinking ritual by pairing some of the finest regional teas with a 7-course autumn menu by Chef Vicky Lau. From Gushusun-dried black tea derived from 200-year-old Assamica trees in Yunnan, to the umami-rich Gyokuro Oku no Tsuyu green tea blended exclusively by Horii Shichimeien in Kyoto, the hand-selected tea pairings showcase a delicate balance with Michelin-starred Chinese French gastronomy. Each tea will be brewed in small batches daily, and served either cold or warm depending on the character of the tea leaves and dish.   The menu begins with Tea Brewed Soft Mushroom Egg, an earthy dish that pairs well with the nutty Forest Wild White Broom white tea from Fujian, China.   The second course is Sweet Shrimp with Shrimp Croquette Fresh Green Tea Leaf, which is paired with a blend of Gyokuro Oku no Tsuyu green tea that is brewed and served at the precise temperature of 40 degrees so as to not burn the tea leaves. The sweet shrimp will be served with raw green tea leaves, which when chewed, releases a strong aroma on the palate. The tea is made of two kinds of tea cultivars: hand-picked Goko from Kyotanabe City and Ujihikari from Wazuka.   Kadaifi Wrapped Snapper with Kumquat, an elegant yet playful dish, meets its match with Oriental Beauty – a Chinese Oolong tea from New Taipei City, served cold and slightly fizzy. The rare tea is always produced in pesticide-free conditions to allow green leafhoppers to bite the leaves. This induces early oxidation and creates a unique honey-like aroma.   The next course of seasonal Tokyo Turnip with Hairy Crab Roe is paired with Big Red Robe, a type of Chinese Oolong rock tea from Fujian, China. The tea is served warm, with a touch of ginger to balance the traditionally “cold” properties of crab roe. Nutty, smoky, and with hints of ripe fruit, the tea acquires its unique flavor from the high mineral content present in the rocky terroir of Wuyi mountains.   French Challan Duck Breast with Plum Sauce is complemented by the malty and woody notes of Gushu sun-dried black tea that is produced in the springtime in Xiaohusai, a 2000-metre altitude tea base in Yunnan, China. The deep aroma of this tea is derived from a special “sun-drying” method of oxidation.   For warming the stomach, the next course highlights Rice Scent Aged Pu’erh to pair with Flower Clams and Dried Seafood Rice. The high-quality aged Pu’erh is processed from hundred-year-old tea trees in the Menghai region of Yunnan, China, and exudes a soothing woody rice scent unmatched by other Pu’erhs.   The concluding dessert course of Chocolate Pastry Cream, Cocoa Streusel with Masala Chai Tea Ice Cream is made from Assam tea leaves harvested from the lowlands of Khongea. The full-bodied, bright, and spicy tea is infused with a rare Keralan spice mix of cinnamon, cardamom, aniseed, cloves, black pepper and rose petals, and cooked slowly over a stove with milk and sugar.   Lunch at TATE Dining Room is served on Fridays and Saturdays from 12pm-2:30pm. Priced at HK$1,188+10% per guest, the seven-course lunch menu will feature refined innovative French-Chinese interpretations of autumn delicacies paired with tea – the chosen single ingredient for October – end of 2020. Depending on the seasonality and availability of ingredients, every 2 -3 months, Chef-patron Vicky Lau will choose a different single ingredient focus.   “Just like wine, tea is a seasonal product of terroir and climate. Little do people know, the flavor of tea is equally nuanced and suited for pairing with a variety of dishes. Through this special menu, I hope to showcase that tea can enhance and accompany food to the same effect as thoughtful wine pairings,” says Chef Vicky Lau.   ODE TO TEA HK$780 (full course men) HK$408 (mandatory tea pairing) HK$1,188+10% per guest   INTRO TEA BREWED SOFT MUSHROOM EGG Forest Wild White Broom-Tea|荒野掃把白茶   I./ SWEET SHRIMP WITH SHRIMP CROQUETTE FRESH GREEN TEA LEAF Gyokuro Oku no Tsuyu|玉露奥の露    II./ KADAIFI WRAPPED SNAPPER WITH KUMQUAT SAUCE  Oriental Beauty |東方美人   III./ TOKYO TURNIP WITH HAIRY CRAB ROE Big Red Rope|果韻大紅袍   IV./ CHALLAN DUCK BREAST WITH PLUM SAUCE Gushu Sun-Dried|古樹曬紅   V./ FLOWER CLAMS AND DRIED SEAFOOD RICE  Rice Scent Aged Pu’erh|糯香茶化石   VI./ CHOCOLATE PASTRY CREAM, COCOA STREUSEL WITH MASALA CHAI TEA ICE CREAM Masala Chai|印度香料阿薩姆   MIGNARDISES   About Chef Vicky Lau – Founder of Tate Dining Room The undisputed queen of innovative French Chinese fine dining in Hong Kong, Chef Vicky Lau takes pride in her talent for visual artistry from her previous life as a graphic designer.
