13th October, 2017 by Natalie Wang

Hong Kong-based Quintessentially has announced a joint venture with Platinum Wines in an effort to strengthen their fine wine and spirits offering in Asia.

The merge will bring Quintessentially’s wine and spirits specialist team in Hong Kong to a total of 10 experts with Platinum Wines’ addition, said the company.

Platinum Wines has long been known for its expertise and high end service offering  – exceptional service is exactly what Quintessentially is all about, bringing our members and clients the best possible experts covering every facet of the luxury lifestyle market. We are extremely excited to welcome our new team members to the Quintessentially family, ” said Emma Sherrard Matthew, executive chairman Asia-Pacific at Quintessentially.

Rickesh Kishnani, former CEO of Platinum Wines, has joined Quintessentially as its managing director APAC for Wine & Spirits.

Commenting on the merger, Kishnani said: “We are thrilled to now be part of Quintessentially to better serve our existing customers as well as Quintessentially’s high net worth membership and client base. This joint venture was a natural step for us as we looked to take our service to the next level as part of a larger luxury and lifestyle organisation. As the world’s leading luxury lifestyle group, Quintessentially was the perfect fit.”

Rickesh is also expected to bring Quintessentially his knowledge in the field of rare single malt whisky through the Platinum Whisky Investment Fund – the world’s first private equity whisky fund.
