JOHN WALKER & SONS XR21 Legacy Collection Hainan

Type: Whisky

Description:

The Hainan Pack features the Hainanese traversing the seas to pan for gold, which is a common phrase known as “Gia Ti Bo Lai Huan”. During this time spent at sea, the Hainanese worshipped the Goddess Shui Wei, whom they believe travelled across the ocean with them when they immigrated to Southeast Asia and protected them throughout their journey. Apart from Goddess Shui Wei, Goddess Thean Hou also played an important role in the livelihood of the Hainanese, keeping them safe through miraculous interventions, visible through the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur. Portrayals of food are also evident through the opening of coffee shops where Western cuisine influenced their cooking styles which led to the creation of dishes like the Hainanese chicken chop, French toast, Hainanese coffee and bread as well as Hainanese Chicken Rice which is easily found in the streets of Malacca, Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
