Royal Selangor's new cocktail sets incorporate new recipes from four mixologists from around the world

There’s more to being a mixologist than having a love for cocktails. It’s a role that’s part bartender, part chemist, and part magician, requiring an immense amount of creativity, patience and knowledge of spirits and ingredients.

Perfecting the art of mixology can take years. But if you have neither the time nor the patience, you can play mixologist at home with Royal Selangor's two new starter kits in collaboration with four mixologists around the world. Each has contributed two special cocktail recipes based on Malaysian or Asian ingredients, which you can create in your home bar with the new drinkware.
