Singapore’s biggest wine and whisky festival returns with exclusive new labels

Oenophiles and connoisseurs of fine spirits, it’s time to stock up again at 1855 The Bottle Shop’s fifth Wine & Whisky Week—even if you’re still not down to the last drop with your last batch.

This year, they’re upping the game by bringing in labels never sold on our shores before, including products from renowned wineries Duemani, Vina Vik and Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, as well as the much-anticipated blended Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare. Besides these exclusive ones, there will be more than 500 other labels on offer throughout the 12-day event, with over 100 of them available for tasting before you buy.

If you’re looking for more, there are also eight masterclasses (up from seven last edition) you can sign up for, where experts the likes of Adrian Goh, passionate sake sommelier from Interrice Asia, gives insight into the spirits you’re nosing and sipping on you otherwise might never have known about.

1855 The Bottle Shop Wine & Whisky Week takes place May 16-27 at Suntec City East Wing, Level 1 Atrium.
