Let us guess; they left you with nothing but half a bottle of Midori, some baiju that looks too adventurous to actually open, and the drags of a souvenir limoncello someone brought back from a Costa cruise. It’s enough to make you give us drinking…almost. Maybe it’s a good thing; it’s a chance for you to put some real thought into what graces the shelf above your telly; to actually curate a collection of artisanal spirits that impress the fellows and filles alike.
Kick off with something that’s not only as smooth as your silk sheets but also brings a touch of art to your man cave. Iordanov Vodka may sound Russian but it’s actually a boutique German brand that combines spirit produced from 100 percent winter wheat and demineralized highlands water with eye-catching design (it’s endorsed by Pam Anderson so you know it’s classy). Crafted in one of Germany’s oldest distilleries and charcoal-filtered five times for a Lothario-smooth finish, Iordanov is faced with limited-edition and suitably masculine scull motifs fashioned from individual crystal. A favourite of hotspots like Nikki Beach Marbella and Equipage Baden Baden and now available in Hong Kong thanks to the clever chappies at Beverages & Entertainment by Vabella, this is top shelf stuff so best lock it up if you’re hosting the next poker and nachos night.
Cause no means no.
