Kah premium tequila

Thanks to my buddy Michael, i had the opportunity to try an ultra premium tequila, called Kah, which comes in amazing, hand-painted bottles!

Kah translates to ‘life’ in Mayan. Being Mexican (obviously), the bottles are inspired by the Mexican celebration, Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). Sounds fun.

The taste session was at Circus in KL. There were three variants for us to try – Kah Blanco, Reposado and Anejo. Kah is a lowland tequila, unlike brands like Don Julio that are highland, so it tends to be more herbal-y.



The Blanco (ABV 40%) comes in white bottles, inspired by Calaveras (skulls made from sugar) which are given to friends and family, and they’re invited to ‘eat their own death’, to acknowledge that death is nothing but a passing from this life into the next. Cool.

I found the Blanco to be silky-smooth, with ‘greenish’ herbal notes. It starts easy, with a lil bite in the middle, and a long, bitter-sweet finish.

Of course, there’s no salt or lime involved when u drink tequilas like these neat.

The Reposado (ABV 55%) obviously has some colour, as it’s aged for 10 months in barrels. At 55%, this is the strongest tequila I’ve had! Ever. It hit me as spicy and citrus-y, and it mosdef don’t feel like a 55. Awesome.

Kah Anejo (ABV 40%) is aged in Amercian oak for a massive 2 years, which is long for a tequila. This one gave out a nose of chocolate. It tastes sweetish, with caramel notes. Very pleasant.

Tequila is not a drink to be slammed. Well, it is, but not necessarily. It’s originally to be sipped. The good stuff, for sure, like the 100% agave tequilas. Or mezcal. Yummy.

Kah is not only a smooth sipping tequila, but one that comes in cool individually-numbered bottles, adorned with exquisite motifs drawn from Latin American history and culture. Every bottle is different.  The bottles would be great for collectors. Right now, u can get it at Circus.

The Hendrick’s Gin party

Hendrick’s is a gin. Sumtin i dont do often. So when the opportunity arose to party, 1920’s style, i wuz all over it.

It graced the premises of Estate, a cool restaurant-bar at Intermark Kuala Lumpur.

Menu was quite interesting, especially the gin-infused food!

Hendrick’s (ABV 41.4%) considers itself a premium gin, as well as a peculiar one. It’s made in small batches. At 41%, it’s light for a gin, as most hover close to 50%.

I luv d dark bottle, like sumtin straight outta Victorian-era chemist, lookin really old and all.

It’s made in a village. In Scotland. Haha

Born in 1999, it’s relatively new. It’s distributed here by Single Malt Sdn Bhd. (who also bring in Angostura rum!)

Met a dame from the 20’s

Among gin brands, Hendrick’s would be considered floral and vegetal, with infusions of rose and cucumber. (If you’ve eaten rose petals, as i have on varied occasions, they’re actually sourish.)

(Also, carpet grass is not as bitter as you think.)

It’s goes easy on the juniper, unlike classic gins like Tanqueray, which give more strong flavours. Hendrick’s is light and fresh.

Estate rocked

Erik the brand ambassador was supposedly around, tho i didnt see him.

There were three cocktails being served, as no one seemed to want it straight.The first was the usual – gin & tonic, which i dislike. The second (lemon-elderflower soda mix) and third were great, especially the tea!


Yea, tea

Aint no ordinary crap tea. This baby is pretty loaded with Hendricks, and has a sweetish-strong mix, smelling of potpourri a lil, and tastes like… i dunno. Like a fresh spring garden.

‘Tea’ servings were small

I think we had a pot each! (Then we hit another party!)

Alcohol make you strong!

Tea!  More tea!

There was also Hendricks jelly….  Hendrick’s dip….. Hendrick’s dis n dat…. and awesome Hendrick’s strawberry sorbet shots!

Down d hatch!

It was a cool party, with good food n drinks and great service and an interesting crowd, including these two punks:

Where da Tommy gun at boys??
