Are canned cocktails the next big thing?

After the sell-out success of canned wines at grocery giant Trader Joe’s in the US, young entrepreneur Victoria Chow has been taking note and recently unveiled a range of canned cocktails at her newly opened bar, Kwoon, in Central.

Kwoon, which is phonetically similar to the Cantonese word for “can”, now offers seven signature canned cocktails that are concocted by mixologists at Chow’s other cocktail bar, The Woods.

The cocktails, using Hong Kong ingredients such as five spices, dried tangerine peel, sour plums, as well as Thai flavours of Tom Yum, are created without the use of artificial preservatives and have a shelf life of two months when refrigerated, according to the company.

Billing the range as “Asia’s first brand of artisanal canned cocktails”, the use of can over glass bottles boasts lighter weight, easier recyclable material and ‘unbreakability’ at parties and events, said the company.
