"I hope to add a cocktail bartender's perspective to the judging panel. With my background in cocktails from a large range of F&B establishments, I will look at how spirits can be elevated with certain accompaniments.”

"I’m extremely excited to be encountering spirits I have not seen before and to compare how different professionals approach and evaluate a spirit."

"The HK IWSC is objective and transparent. The spirit industry is one that invests heavily on marketing, and consumers can be assured that the judging panel looks past superficial qualities and provides honest, objective results."
