Jay Kahn: Co-founder of Asia's #1 Bar, Coa | ep. 256
This week’s episode of the show features Jay Kahn, the co-founder of Coa in Hong Kong — which was recently named Asia's Best Bar for 2021. Coa is a bar where the spirits of Mexico take the spotlight and are showcased for Hong Kong’s most discerning cocktail drinkers. But it’s not just Tequila and Oaxacan mezcal that are being highlighted, but also more obscure spirits, such as sotol, bacanora and raicilla.
