Little Blue Gin
Little Blue Bar, inspired by the upper deck of the Keying junk, offers intimate cocktails inspired by Eastern flavours and is the home of Little Blue Gin.
Nestled on the ground floor, the Little Blue Bar draws inspiration from the upper deck of the historic Keying junk, a symbol of cultural exchange between China and London. It is here that you'll find the home of Little Blue Gin, a tribute to the Maritime passage connecting East and West. This exquisite gin is a fusion of rare and fine teas, including white tea, lapsang souchong, assam, and pu’er, expertly blended to perfection by Master Distiller, William Lowe MW. The design of the bottle mirrors the captivating interior of the bar.
Mach II Gin
High above the cityscape, The Peninsula London's rooftop restaurant, Brooklands, awaits. An homage to the golden eras of British aviation and motorsport, it serves as the inspiration for Mach II Gin.
With its sweeping outdoor terrace and restaurant featuring a scale model of the iconic Concorde, Brooklands offers a breathtaking dining experience. The automotive-themed bar, adorned with rare motoring memorabilia and classic race cars from the Brooklands racetrack and museum, sets the stage for enjoying this remarkable gin. Mach II Gin expertly combines juniper with quintessentially British countryside botanicals of blackcurrant leaves, rose, rosemary, lemon verbena, angelica, and basil.
Taking its name from the year The Peninsula Hotels first opened its doors in Hong Kong, 1928 Gin captures the essence of the hotel, seamlessly blending British elegance with Asian sophistication.
This exceptional gin harmoniously blends quintessentially English botanicals, such as delicate rose petals and aromatic lemon verbena, with the allure of Asian botanicals, including vibrant turmeric and zesty kaffir lime. The result is an extraordinary infusion of spicy warmth and vibrant citrus notes that define its distinct flavour profile. The Peninsula London's signature Peninsula Afternoon Tea and timeless all-day dining classics in The Lobby restaurant provide the perfect accompaniment for savouring this masterpiece. The Lobby’s triple-height, intricately moulded ceiling serves as the muse for the 1928 Gin's bottle design.
We highly recommend a visit to this exceptional hotel, where you can indulge in a lavish stay or explore the bars to savour these exquisite libations firsthand.
