It is complex and fragrant, and the journey is like walking on a Scottish hillside covered with flowers and fruits. It is simple, as simple as barley production is enough, because it wants the ultimate, “source” is its pure and natural. Whisky, a word derived from an old Scottish word, is a strong distilled spirit made from grains such as barley aged in oak barrels for around 43 degrees for more than 500 years. For whisky, New Make, which has just been distilled, is colorless and transparent. Our fascination with color and flavor comes from the long oak barrel aging that follows; Among the substances that give whisky its colour are tannins and vanillin found in casks.
LOLLIPOP WHISKEY BAR
The concept originated from the raw material (barley) for making whisky. This space takes “barley” as the main extraction element, first from the single natural form to the combined fission form, and then from the “complex” to “simple” transformation form and implanted into the main wine shelf area with the center of the bar as the core, highlighting the related theme. The pan-golden metal texture is integrated into the overall space, further reflecting the inherent color of whisky, and under the map of the light appears to be the light and color, between the light and shadow is like half an acre of a pond, a mirror opened, the sky light and cloud shadow wander togethe.

On the vision of whole space with black/aureate give priority to fundamental key, build a kind of mysterious noble sense. Black/gold matching and collision has always been the darling of the fashion world. Black, as a powerful color, can be solemn or elegant, and is a color that represents many different cultural meanings. Gold is the color of metallic gold, with luster. It is the supreme solid color in nature, symbolizing the color of the sun, representing warmth and happiness. The concept of gold in this space is more to reflect the inherent color of whisky itself.
