Hong Kong

Group photo after our session at Aberdeen St Social

On a recent magical trip to Hong Kong son Jesse and I did a presentation on Agave Spirits at the Aberdeen Street Social organized by our friend Neil Rivington. It was very rewarding to share ideas with the assembled bartenders, managers and owners. The level of expertise and enthusiasm is high in this unique city.

After the presentation which included tequila -including a tasting of Ocho- Neil told us the story
below , in his own words.

"During my time @ Shoreditch House in London in 2007- when we got busy/slammed at the bar, one bartender would shout out, "Ocho time!" Then someone would proceed to pour shots for all on the bar. This would continue through the night 'Ocho got us through' ".
