The week in pictures: Hong Kong

Desmond Payne, Master Distiller of Beefeater Gin was in Hong Kong for a gin and tonic masterclass held at The Woods, a cocktail bar in Central. Speaking to roughly a dozen people from the media, Payne believes there’s a resurgence of gin in global markets, saying: “It is a universal spirit – it is not just about London anymore. With botanicals coming from all over the world, we are appreciating Asian influences in new styles of gin, as well as native ingredients from around the world offering so many unique flavours and aroma profiles.”
