The MÖVENPICK process


MÖVENPICK® Ice Cream starts its recipe-making process with Alpine cream of unsurpassed quality from Switzerland before journeying the world to source the most natural and finest ingredients, flavours, and trends of the highest standard. From the authentic Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar to the juicy Alphonso mangoes from India, one can only expect the most premium tastes in the ice cream.

The Perfume Trees Gin process


The same goes for local brand Perfume Trees Gin. Founded by Kit Cheung and Joseph Cheung, the brand works closely with Hong Kong farmers and suppliers to find regional aromas and evocative botanicals which capture the spirit of the city.

“We started Perfume Trees Gin to make Hong Kong’s first-ever gin to capture the fusion of the city’s cultures. We are excited to partner with MÖVENPICK® Ice Cream to create truly unique and premium cocktail and ice cream pairings to enjoy,”—Kit Cheung, main founder of Perfume Trees Gin.
