Keynote Speaker: Founder & Managing Director at Sip Straight; Co-Founder & Distiller at Waldgeist Distillery

Victoria Chow Biography

Victoria Chow is the founder of Sip Straight, a boutique consultancy specializing in cocktail bars and spirits that provides bar consultation, workshops, content development, and judging and sampling services. She is also the co-founder and distiller at Waldgeist Distillery, where she is aiding in reviving a family distillery to produce hyperlocal sipping gins and eau de vies.

Prior to her current work, Chow was the founder and managing director of the lifestyle company The Woods, which comprises a cocktail bar, events and catering arm, canned cocktails, and a media site. She transformed The Woods into the “World's First Nomadic Bar,” which was a pioneer for the artisanal cocktail and spirits scene in Asia upon its opening in 2014. She was acknowledged in Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2019 and received the WSET & IWSC Future 50 Awards in 2019 for her innovative approach to drink concepts. In 2016, anticipating the burgeoning craft cocktail movement, Chow expanded operations to incorporate KWOON, a canned cocktail brand, and The Woods Annex, a private 8-seater bar that serves as her experimental and educational platform.

Chow was born in California and often traveled between Hong Kong and San Francisco before settling there for secondary school. She attended UC Berkeley, where she studied Mass Communications and Art History. Recently, she relocated back to the SF Bay Area.

Victoria Chow News

  • Five minutes with Victoria Chow, founder of The Woods, KWOON and The Woods’ Annex

    Victoria Chow takes drinking seriously. She’s built her career around mixing some of Hong Kong’s best cocktails at sultry Hollywood Road watering hole The Woods and making artisanal canned concoctions a thing at KWOON. Now she’s building a library of spirits with the intention of educating the city’s sippers on the finer points of premium liquors through drink-and-dialogue-driven sessions at intimate tasting room The Woods’ Annex. And all of this is executed with an impeccable eye for aesthetics, honed through a background in graphic design, advertising and photography.

  • Future 50 Q&A: Victoria Chow

She also oversees The Annex, a separate store and tasting room located down the street and, in her free time, KWOON, her very own line of canned craft cocktails.
