Aberdeen Street Social is giving guests another reason to visit the hub of Hong Kong’s creative ecology with the appointment of award-winning mixologist Audrey Eschemann as Bar Manager. With her secret ingredient being ‘a healthy dose of fun,’ guests are sure to enjoy her creative cocktails at this PMQ-based social destination.
Before moving to Hong Kong, Audrey earned her bartending credentials around the world while working at top bars in Buenos Aires and Paris, sweeping bartending competitions along the way. She took home a second place title at the L’Angostura Global Challenge in France in 2014, was a finalist at the 2014 Domaine de Canton Bartender of the Year Competition in France and, most recently, became a semifinalist at Bacardi Legacy’s 2015 competition in Argentina. Audrey’s adventurous spirit brought her to Hong Kong where she pours her uncanny sense of childhood creativity into a slew of brand new cocktails at Aberdeen Street Social. Featuring a range of spirits including whiskey, gin and mescal, Audrey’s daring and tantalising libations are based on homemade infusions with traditional flavours.

“I am always finding inspiration in my everyday life, and the buzzy energy at Aberdeen Street Social has become a catalyst for great ideas. I love combining unexpected flavours and am particularly excited about this new cocktail list,” said Audrey. “I’ve combined surprising ingredients– green tea with rosemary, berry with Tabasco– that our bold clientele are sure to love.”
Guests can enjoy the vibrant, social atmosphere of Aberdeen Street Social over Audrey’s creative concoctions such as the Sweet Moment, a light refresher that combines Bacardi Carta Blanca, green tea powder, rosemary syrup, lemon/grapefruit juice and tonic water (HKD140) or the Not Going Tequila, a playful mix of tequila, Lapsang Sushong tea syrup, chili pepper and angostura bitters (HKD128).
