Begin your night with the fizzy, comforting, and nectarous, Oolongtini. 

Oolongtini is a unique mix of three single malt whiskies, Oolong tea, and a zest of honey and orange zest. It is served under a dramatically smoked glass dome creating a deep flavor and sensation. This extraordinary fusion will make your evening special and perfectly set the night’s mood.

Brown Derby

The Brown Derby cocktail is a combination of bourbon, grapefruit juice, and honey syrup. According to the Craft of the Cocktail, a book by Dale DeGroff, Brown Derby was created at the Vendôme Club in Los Angeles in the 1930s. It was named for the eponymous hat-shaped diner nearby.

This fantastic blend surprisingly binds the tart citrus and the spicy bourbon for a distinct taste. 

Whisky Smash

On the other hand, Whisky Smash is a classic cocktail with a bright and refreshing flavor. This blend comes from “Professor” Jerry Thomas’ Bar-Tenders Guide book but has been enjoyed by many before the recipe publication. 

This cocktail drink features a refreshing blend of whisky and mint to energize your beautiful evening. 


Boulevardier whisky is perfect on a chilly evening or mixed into your favorite cocktail with its rich, warm flavors and hints of citrus and spice. It’s an excellent choice if you like a bolder drink but a newbie to the whisky world. The Boulevardier swaps gin for a higher ratio of bourbon, resulting in a sweet and rich flavor, unlike the Negroni, which uses equal parts of gin, vermouth, and Campari.

Ward Eight

This American whiskey is crafted using a blend of rye, corn, and malted barley, resulting in a smooth and complex flavor profile. It is a signature cocktail served at Uncle Ming’s, a popular bar and restaurant specializing in high-quality whiskey and Asian-inspired cuisine. It’s an excellent choice for sipping neat or mixing your favorite cocktails. Give Ward Eight Whisky a try and discover why it’s quickly becoming a fan favorite!


Millionaire is a rich and flavorful blend that will impress every whisky lover.

Uncle Ming’s Millionaires is a premium whiskey brand that collectors and enthusiasts covet.

It’s perfect for special occasions or to enjoy a nightcap with friends. This brand is renowned for its distinct flavor profile, developed using meticulous aging and carefully selected components.

The result is a smooth and complex flavor profile that features notes of honey, vanilla, oak, and just a hint of smoke.


Algonquin is a popular variation involving sweet white vermouth instead of dry vermouth, making for a less dry cocktail. It’s perfect if you have a sweet tooth! It’s a delightful whiskey martini with a tropical twist, a little lighter than whiskey favorites such as Manhattan.

For every wine enthusiast, Uncle Ming’s Algonquin Wine is a must-try! The stunning Algonquin served as the inspiration for this innovative red-white wine combination. Each sip of Algonquin Wine guarantees that it will be pleasurable. This wine stands out in its category thanks to its distinctive blend and silky finish.
