, 10 best liquor stores and bottle shops in Singapore
Wine Connection

As nice at it would be to have your cocktails served by a mixologist and your wines poured by a sommelier every time you feel like having a drink, sometimes you just want to imbibe in the comfort of your own home. Even more so nowadays, with working from home arrangements being such a big part of the new normal. That’s where bottle shops come in. Here are some of the best ones around.


1855 The Bottle Shop

extensive range of alcohol including gin and vodka

Named after the 1855 classification of Bordeaux wines, 1855 has a bottle for every occasion, from everyday varietals to champagnes that won’t break the bank to magnums of iconic First Growth vintages priced in the high four figures.

cellarbration for quick shop of alcohol islandwide

This lesser-known bottle shop chain offers some of the best prices (read: affordable) in town, and sometimes that’s all the motivation we need to make a purchase. Their delivery service is also one of the most value-for-money, with no minimum purchase required if you sign up to be a member (which is also free, and gives you a 10% discount).

If you reckon you’ve got the bartending skills to shake it with the best of them, then online store EC Proof is the place to get spirits, bitters, tools and books for your home bar. Look out for their special events too.

Grand Cru Wine Concierge

red wine shop and liquor store

A wine bottle shop manned by sommeliers? Sounds like the place to be for real collectors and true oenophiles. They’ve got a good range of highly-rated bottles, including 100-pointer labels, which you can even pop open to drink at the space outside. Can’t find what you’re looking for? They can source bottles for you and have ’em delivered too.

La Maison du Whisky

extensive range of whisky including scotch whisky, japan whisky, malt whisky

Boasting one of the largest collection of whiskies (including really rare bottlings) in a single retail space isn’t even the best thing about La Maison du Whisky. It’s the people running the place; generous, hospitable folk who are willing to share passionately about their products, and most importantly, who also allow guests to taste many of the stock they have before they buy. Amazing.

Nectars & Vine

nectars and vine liquor store

Technically a bottle shop offering booze at retail prices, though most folk come here for a dressed-down evening to kick back and enjoy the company of friends. It’s like a Serangoon neighbourhood dive bar, perfect for cheap drinks after a prata supper sesh.

Orihara Shoten

orihara shoten izakaya and japanese liquor store

They’re known for being one of the best izakayas in town, but the people behind Orihara are actually also in the alcohol distribution business. This means you’ll find craft sake, sochu, umeshu and many other hard-to-find bottlings from Japan you won’t get anywhere else. Sake lovers, be prepared to come empty handed but leave with your hands full once you peek inside their fridges.
