No. 3 London Dry Gin and Globe-Trotter have created a limited-edition Martini Case for budding sippers on the move.
Celebrated tipple No. 3 London Dry Gin – the only gin ever to win ‘World’s Best’ four times at the International Spirits Challenge – and British luggage brand Globe-Trotter have launched a limited-edition Martini Case in Hong Kong. To celebrate its debut, Lorenzo Antinori from Bar Leone, Antonio Lai from Quinary and Artifact’s Beckaly Franks will serve up travel-inspired Martinis at their bars this September.
Designed as the ultimate definition of the travelling Martini experience, the limited-edition Martini case, with only 100 individually numbered cases available globally, sets a new benchmark for luxury on the road, and will also impress the guys next time they’re over for drinks at yours.
Hand-crafted by Globe-Trotter, the Martini case features a teal and tan leather exterior, and includes two bespoke No. 3 Gin x Nude Martini glasses, which are designed to maintain the ideal temperature for the perfect Martini. The case also features a limited edition Vermouth bottle endorsed by master mixologist Alessandro Palazzi, a No. 3 Gin branded jigger, leather embossed coasters, two No. 3 Gin Martini picks, and a 70cl bottle of No. 3 London Dry Gin.
The exclusive Martini Case, which retails for GBP1,800 (HK$17,959) will be on display at the Globe-Trotter Hong Kong Boutique at The Peninsula Arcade in Tsim Sha Tsui for six weeks from 5 September, 2023.
Looking to sample an intriguing take on a classic cocktail? A trio of exclusive martinis will be available to sample for a one month only at Bar Leone, Quinary and Artifact respectively.
The Martini Italico by Lorenzo Antinori from Bar Leone, available from 7 September, is a celebratory journey through the Italian peninsula. This rich and nutty martini features No.3 London Dry Gin, Marsala wine, fernet, orange bitters, and is garnished with discarded lemon peel and pickled peeled almond. It’s a tribute to Italy’s iconic Harry’s Bar in Venice and showcases ingredients from both north and south of Italy.
Dry Martini My Way by Antonio Lai (above) from Quinary, available from 14 September, is inspired by the elegance and precision of the Duke Bar’s service. This dry martini boasts No.3 Gin and 3 drops of dry essence. It’s a modern interpretation of a classic, embodying the adventurous spirit of a cosmopolitan traveller.
The Artifact Gibson by Beckaly Franks from Artifact, available from 21 September, evokes the allure of old Hollywood. Often referred to as the ‘Secret Pink Gibson’ at Artifact by those in the know, this martini is as mysterious and captivating as a geisha. Crafted with Japanese banana shallot, dry vermouth, a dash of lemon oil, and the ultimate premium No.3 London Dry Gin, the cocktail is stirred down to silky perfection.
So you’ve sampled the cocktails, now you want the case to put your own martin-making skills to the test. To get your hands on one of these limited-edition cases, you’ll need to Globe-Trotter directly – but just think, you’ll be able to mix up a great Martini wherever you are in the world. Just remember to check in the gin and Vermouth.
