Sure, you can pick up bottles of booze from any supermarket, gourmet grocer or bottle shop in Singapore. But if you’re looking to equip your home with a legit bar setup, you’ll require more than just alcohol and mixers.
You’ll need appropriate glassware, tools like shakers and jiggers, various sorts of garnishes, the right kind of ice, and even a phial of bitters or two, at least. So here to make things easier by offering a one-stop shop for everything you’ll need is newly launched DestinationBeverage.com.
They’ve actually been a B2B business since 2013, supplying craft spirits and liqueurs to top bars in Singapore like Jigger & Pony, Idlewild and Manhattan. But they’ve since recently opened an online store too, letting one and all purchase directly from them.
Find both familiar and rarer spirit brands on their site, from Hendrick’s Gin to WhistlePig Whisky, Tito’s Handmade Vodka to Tarsier Southeast Asian Dry Gin. Even local brands like Brass Lion can be found in their sizable spirits catalogue.
Beyond that, you’ll find the rare J. Gasco brand of tonic and mixers available, as well as one of the most comprehensive selection of liqueurs we’ve seen. Whether you’re in the market for common items like triple sec and amaro, or fruity infusions of lychee, grapefruit and banana, they’ve got you sorted.
Their range of bitters is substantial too, and collectors will be glad to know they even offer miniatures for sale. As for bar tools, anything from muddlers to ice picks, skull-shaped glassware to tiki mugs are also available.
For the uninitiated in bartending, they’re not leaving you high and dry. They’ve got beginner-friendly cocktail kits that come with everything you’ll need to create classics like the Singapore Sling, Lychee Martini and Whisky Sour, among many others.
There’s even a curated subscription service of sorts, that’s perfect for budding enthusiasts to experience a whole range of different craft spirits in order to broaden their horizons. The Premium Gin Club ($640), for instance, comes with six bottles of craft gin, 36 mixers, six packs of garnishes, mysterious surprise items, and notes on how to better appreciate the spirits you’re imbibing.
So if you’re interested in better appreciating spirits and mixology, and am looking to get equipped with the tools of the trade, look no further.
