Travel retail highlights

Curating the world’s finest sensations

Duty Zero by cdf, the retail joint venture between China Duty Free Group and Lagardère Travel Retail, is celebrating its second anniversary at Hong Kong International Airport in style.

A series of exclusive and limited-edition launches, themed galleries and experiential zones for partner brands – housing rare editions only found in travel retail – will run until the end of 2019, while lucky draws and silent auctions for rare pieces will also take place. Many items also feature a -40% discount.

The celebration features 53 creations across Cognac, single malt whisky, blended whisky, wine and Champagne as well as a strong selection of Asian liquor.

A key feature of the celebration is an exhibition titled ‘Curating the world’s finest sensations’. It features three themed galleries: Master of Whisky, Wine Specialist and Connoisseur of Distilleries in the East Hall North and East Hall South stores.

Interaction and immersion is at the heart of the Duty Zero by cdf offer, and this extensive launch of exclusives and limited editions adds another compelling reason to showcase and discover what are some spectacular liquids.

Events to mark the anniversary include a digital silent auction, which invites bids on 21 gems with real-time bidding status

Duty Zero has launched Hennessy X.O Ice as a limited edition. As the name suggests, it offers a new take on Hennessy X.O by serving it over ice.
