HOW DID YOU BECOME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WINE & SPIRITS?

In my years as a bartender, I have been continually impressed by the aromas and flavors of the various brands of wine and spirits, which led me to be passionate about them.

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER LOUIS XIII?

I found it in the back bar of a certain bar in Kobe city. I felt I will taste LOUIS XIII someday and decided to be a bartender who can treat it.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT LOUIS XIII TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER TASTED IT?

I would tell them about its deep shades, as well as its aromas and flavors that continually change as time passes. I would say that it is the best of cognacs that one can slowly enjoy. I would note that its aromas and flavors change with the seasons, and that it seems to be breathing, just as people do.

CAN YOU TELL US A STORY, A FAMOUS ANECDOTE ABOUT THIS PLACE THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?

The Eden Rock was built about 50 years ago by Remy de Haenen, the island's first Mayor and a much loved local eccentric, celebrated adventurer and skilled aviator. De Haenen choses to build his private home on the rocky promontory in St. Jean Bay, laying the foundations of what is today one of the most striking locations in the world.

IF THIS PLACE WAS A SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

"Imagine" from John Lennon. Indeed in one of our Ultraluxe Villa can be found the Neve mixing console on which John Lennon recorded his famous song. Furthermore, this song conveys similar values as Eden Rock – St Barths such as friendliness that we aim to have with our guests.

HOW DID YOU BECOME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WINE & SPIRITS?

When I started my studies at the hotel school, I developed curiosity in tastes for both fine food and quality wines. I had the chance to discover epicurean pleasures and I even became fascinated by the complexity of wines and spirits.

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER LOUIS XIII?

In 2004 at the hotel Normandy in Deauville, just after I joined the property. I attended a tasting of the Louis XIII for the very first time and I immediately added as a reference in our wine list.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT LOUIS XIII TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER TASTED IT?

Try it once: you palate will remind!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DREAM IN LIFE?

Carpe Diem until the last minute…

CAN YOU TELL US A STORY, A FAMOUS ANECDOTE ABOUT THIS PLACE THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?

Inspired by the Gilded Ages, the Astor Bar located on Level 2 of the Hotel, is a bar and lounge combining modern-day glamour with old-world elegance, much like the city that it resides in, Kuala Lumpur. The brass-trimmed paneled entrance with its custommade hammered-brass door knobs, reveal an inviting bar area set against dark wooden shutters, brass accents, rich leathers, horsehair wall panels, luxurious black-and gold marble, and gold leaf ceilings. Set away from Astor Bar's main entrance, is a discreet entrance to a private room, offering the ultimate experience for those seeking seclusion. The Astor Bar's Cigar Lounge is equipped with a special air filtration system and private storage lockers for personal prized cigar collections. The richly layered and exacting detailed interior of the premier bar at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, convey the hallmark St. Regis heritage and legacy of the Astors. The bar and lounge offers an extensive variety of champagne, spirits and fine vintage wines, as well as The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur's Signature Bloody Mary.

IF THIS PLACE WAS A SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

It would go perfectly with Dean Martin – 'That's Amore'

HOW DID YOU BECOME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WINE & SPIRITS?

I started my career in the hospitality industries by working at the bar; and that was how I developed my passions about wines and spirits. Even though I was young and carefree back then, but I always believed that I have an old soul. And I do love the perfections of making wines.

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER LOUIS XIII?

In my father's wine closet – when I was 18 years old.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT LOUIS XIII TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER TASTED IT?

Today is the day – take chances, raise a glass!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DREAM IN LIFE?

To have my very own brand of hotel.
