Whisky Live Singapore 2017: Why It’s Worth Checking Out
17 November 2017
Annual whisky appreciation event Whisky Live will return for its eighth edition on Nov 25 and 26 at a new location at Robertson Quay.
It will take place across three spaces – TheatreWorks, Caseen Street and STPI, with a Cocktail Food Street that is accessible to the public.
Previous versions of the event had been held at locations such as Raffles Hotel, Collyer Quay and Capella Singapore, but organiser La Maison du Whisky wanted to bring it back to home ground by having it where its longstanding retail space is located.
Last year’s event, held at Capella Singapore on Sentosa, drew close to 3,000 visitors.
“But Robertson Quay has special meaning to us with La Maison du Whisky as one of the earliest retailers and suppliers of whiskies and fine spirits in Singapore.
“Founded in 2006, the shop was converted to a bar in 2011,” says general manager Mathieu Musnier.
There will be more than 50 whisky and spirit brands for tasting, including hard-to-find whiskies such as Ardbeg 1976, Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013 and the Springbank 45 Year Old.
