Nothing tells the story of a place and its culture like a spirit. Every spirit speaks through the botanical characters indigenous to each location. The founders behind Perfume Trees Gin wanted to create a spirit for our beloved Hong Kong; a spirit that whispers tales of our uniquely dynamic, vibrant and beautiful city.

Joseph Cheung, also born and brought up in Hong Kong, is the meticulous driving wheel behind Perfume Trees gin, critical care and cardiac care nurse practitioner and a master of law graduate, living for and pursuing the finest food and drink in the world.
After meeting each other in Kit’s bartending classes, this pair of Hongkongers decided to share their
knowledge and passion, and became determined to invent a spirit worthy of their island home.
And the Spirit
For over a year Kit and Joseph tirelessly composed different blends of botanicals, working closely with local farmers and suppliers to best understand the terroir and aromas that truly represent Hong Kong – whilst achieving the ultimate harmony and balance of complex flavour.
The result is a bottle of gin that captures the very heart and soul of Hong Kong. A small sip is enough to transport you to the blossoming breezy summer in the colourful streets of Hong Kong
