Four Seasons Hotel Seoul  
Through Dec. 3: Bartenders from the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Asia Pacific have joined hands to create a limited-time cocktail menu known as Poured by Four Seasons, celebrating six destinations, inspiration, and stories from award-winning and newly launched bars at Four Seasons.
“Poured by Four Seasons” will be presented at five Four Seasons locations — Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo — and includes cocktails from all of the Four Seasons bars on Asia’s 50 Best Bars list. Charles H. is No. 13 on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2021 list, named Best Bar in Korea and is No. 49 on The World’s 50 Best Bars 2020 list.
The latest Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2021 announcement saw Charles H at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, Bar Trigona at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur and Caprice Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong make the coveted list and marks the highest positions that the bars have ever achieved.
At Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, the event is fronted by head bartender Keith Motsi of Charles H. He serves Earl Grey Gimlette. He reimagines the classic tea flavor and explores the age-old debate of how one should consume tea — with or without milk? In this gimlet creation, Motsi adds an unconventional element in the form of a milk pearl and Solomon’s Cordial.
