Waterside Tipples



If you’re looking for new reasons to encounter Victoria Harbour’s best views, the InterContinental Hong Kong’s stunning Lobby Lounge, acclaimed for its panoramic harbour views, is introducing new attractions, including an Agarwood Chinese tea set, artisanal carbonated cocktails and oak barrel aged premium vintage whiskey cocktails. Acclaimed for its multiple health benefits, Agarwood tea is a natural detoxifier; while agarwood has traditionally been used in Asian medicinal and spiritual practices, it is now becoming integrated into a healthy lifestyle regime. Look out for a rare and precious Agarwood Showpiece from Vietnam (Tỉnh Quảng Ngãi), on display in the Lobby Lounge to coincide with a new
Agarwood Chinese Tea Set, which includes a selection of premium Chinese tea, steeped with agarwood from Vietnam. The tea set is served in a stunning red lacquered three-tiered box and includes a selection of savory regional specialties including Chinese pastries and a basket of dried longan and chestnut madeleines.

If you’re looking for something a little stronger, the Lounge now features artisanal sparkling versions of guests’ favourite cocktails, from a Patron Reposado tequila margarita; or a Whiteley gin gimlet; to a Hendricks gin negroni. For something to savour with your view, the new selection of home-matured whiskey cocktails, aged in the hotel’s own oak barrels. Made with two famous whiskies - Cutty Sark 12 Years & Chivas Regal 12 Years - selected by the hotel’s beverage manager, Cadition Law, signature concoctions include the Leo Engel's Saddle Rock – 1878 and the The Waldorf-Astoria's Rob Roy, both priced at HK$210. www.hongkong-ic.intercontinental.com
