An interview with the mixologist from Distil Bar at Bangkok’s Lebua State Tower hotel, featured in FOUR’s upcoming inaugural edition, on the making of his mixology column…

Why four cocktails?

The Aged series consists of FOUR very innovative cocktails that are meant to convey a ‘Golden Age’ of cocktail making, which I am trying to take the lead on here in Bangkok. The first series of its kind, it includes the Vanity, the Hi-So, the Amortentia and Pandora’s Box, and I think it’s the perfect number. I love these four cocktails as each has its own character and architecture.

How did you select the recipes for the issue?

The criteria were original styles, a new genre, premium spirits and house-made ingredients, and new methods, to create something entirely new that you cannot find anywhere but Distil.

How did you prepare yourself and your cocktails for the photoshoot?

I prepare everything the day before, making sure all the ingredients are available, the bar is properly set up, and the ambience is inspiring. Then I just smile and do my everyday routine behind the bar.

What’s your interview preparation?

I try to be truthful, honest and genuine, andbe myself, happy and living my life.
