The team at Origin could see that the modern movement of gin would capture the imagination of small distillers around the world. Consumers are now blessed with a profusion of superb, distinctive gins inspiring mixologists all over the world to create unique and flavoursome cocktails or a just simple G&T done right. No doubt, this has been the goal of Hong Kong’s local renowned mixologist Antonio Lai, using his creativity to bring another unique experience to town.
Origin is the first Gin focused bar in Hong Kong. To no surprise, internationally acclaimed mixologist Antonio Lai works his magic at Origin by using distinctive culinary methods to create his signature cocktails. All these include the use of a rotary evaporator for redistilling unique flavours into the gin, and a water-bath and vacuum to slow-cook. Using these methods, Origin offers fifteen homemade gin infusion flavours, including lemongrass and lime, basil and kaffir lime, guava, pandan, jujube, and Japanese shiso.
