The best bar in Asia is Jigger & Pony from Singapore, with The Old Man from Hong Kong in second place, according to The 50 best bars in Asia.

Jigger & Pony, who was ninth on the 2019 list, is named after the double-cone device used by bartenders to precisely pour spirits.

The bar promises “new interpretations of classic cocktails”. Her selections include Bubblegum Fizz, which contains Ketel One Vodka, Strawberry Wine, Empirical Spirits Fallen Pony, Lemon and Egg White; as well as Madame President, with Monkey 47 Gin ingredients, dry kaffir vermouth, orchid and bitter melon liqueur, and a Campari lollipop.

Jigger & Pony is temporarily closed due to Singapore’s Covid-19 circuit breaker, but it does deliver cocktails throughout the city-state, including The Tree Does Not Grow Straight gin in honor of its number one status.

Hong Kong winner The Old Man pays tribute to Hemingway, he says, “drawing inspiration from his novels, history and folklore, and using new ingredients and cooking accessories – paying homage to spirits and cocktails he liked. “

Offers include In Our Time – 1924 with clarified banana ghee – celery, salted tequila and a special banana skin tincture.
