This Father’s Day, show Dad how much he means to you by treating him to two Michelin starred authentic Cantonese cuisine and creative cocktails at Duddell’s, including a special whiskey drink, “Hannibal,” created for the weekend and free for dads dining in a party of four and above. All Dads will also take home a gift from Aesop, comprised of some of the skincare brand’s most popular items.
In honour of the holiday, and hero dads everywhere, Duddell’s Salon and Bar Manger Marek Vojcarcik created the special cocktail, “Hannibal”. The namesake refers to the historical Carthaginian military leader who is remembered for his legendary leadership. Marek’s drink of champions is made with Johnnie Walker double black label, Noval port wine, Campari, and Laphroaig whisky, garnished with barbecued pork. Fear not, Dads of smaller contingents can also order the tipple for HK$120 on June 20 or 21.
