Wander and Travel to …Kerry Hotel as Red Sugar Transforms into “The Wild Monkey Inn

An Immersive Pop-Up in Collaboration with Cult-Favourite Monkey 47 Gin

Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong’s popular rooftop cocktail bar, Red Sugar launches quirky cultural destination experience “The Wild Monkey Inn” on 25 November 2020.  The bar has partnered up with cult-favourite Monkey 47 ultra-premium gin to celebrate the turn of the season by transporting guests into a fully immersive world of Monkey 47 with décor and eclectic visuals that tell the story of the internationally-awarded gin – an eccentric combination of 47 botanicals, hand-crafted with British traditions, the exotic allure of India and the magical, untouched roots of Black Forest, Germany. Guests will follow monkey footprints to enter through a mural of Wild Monkey corridor, welcomed by a rustic fireplace, into the Monkey Inn lounge – all are ultra-posh and very insta-worthy!

This immersive sight will feature a menu of exclusive Monkey cocktails by Head Bartender, Simon Kong and complemented by Monkey 47-inspired bar snacks. Sit back and soak up the handsome Monkey décors, and Red Sugar’s signature 270-degree view of the city’s skyline at the terrace, while sipping on the playful Monkey cocktails handcrafted with flavour-rich botanicals. Simon has carefully selected complementing ingredients to lift the ultra-unique flavour profile of Monkey 47 gin – traditional juniper and lavender, fresh citrus peel and lingonberry, spruce shoots and bramble leaves foraged from the Black Forest. This all-new Monkey cocktail series offer a drinking pleasure that is almost unbelievably complex, evolves over the tongue and moves from bright citrus to delicate florals to gently spiced pepper.
