Stemming from a passion for the culinary arts, Ivan has always wanted to pursue a career in the food and beverage industry. Kickstarting his career in hotels shortly after graduation, he was quickly introduced to the world of wine and spirits by his peers and never looked back.

Ivan’s love of craftsmanship and creation stems from his interest in the culinary arts, which started during his years as a university student. He has always loved to cook and often incorporated different culinary ideas and cooking techniques with his own improvisations to create unique combinations.

In his pursuit of finding the best craft gins around the world, he was eventually inspired to create his own gin and make his own mark by establishing Hong Kong’s first gin distillery, with a mission to share joy and happiness through his passion to those around him.
