Nautilus Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta recently hosted Senior Bartender Yeonghwi Yun from Charles H., a hidden speakeasy located at the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, named after the cocktail icon of the Gilded Age.
A native of Seoul, Hwi, as he’s known, began his career in bartending in 2014 at the Fullerton Bay Hotel in Singapore. He returned to Seoul to be a part of the Charles H. launch, where together with a dedicated team of passionate bartenders, they helped create one of the World’s Best Bars.
In Jakarta on 21 and 22 February, Hwi’s cocktails included the "Far Eastern Gimlet”, a combination of gin, lime cordial and lime blossom, which rendered a fresh taste on the palate; the Fourth Regiment, a combination of Rye, Brandy, Sweet Vermouth, Celery and Aromatic bitters which either provided a smoky or smooth taste depending on how long one left the infusion in the bottle; and the Knickerbocker Punch which originated at the fabled Hotel Knickerbocker in New York’s Times Square. A combination of aged Caribbean Rum, Mulled Red Wine, Lime and Bitters, this drink was an ideal tipple after a hard day at work! Truly an homage to the man who pioneered the transnational fusion of flavours in cocktails.
