We're a sibling duo - guess who's the eldest - with roots from Hong Kong. We've been all over the world and been in the drinks industry for far too long - over 20 years combined! Having worked so long for "The Man," we decided to do something for ourselves. In 2022, we embarked on our flagship bottle shop Delay No More. Delay No More focuses on quality, low intervention wines and other drinks, Asian-inspired lifestyle goods, and community building. Based in Bermondsey, we hope to bring a bit of our heritage to the neighbourhood.
Why "Delay No More"
In Cantonese, "Delay No More" sounds like a common swear word - "屌你老母" diu2 nei5 lou5 mou5, which translates to "fuck your mum." It's commonly used and very characteristic of the Hong Kong vernacular. Everyone from a teen to your grandma says it. Crude and hilarious Cantonese aside, we like to think of "Delay No More" akin to carpe diem or YOLO.
Life is short, what are you waiting for?
