1855 The Bottle Shop will be hosting sixth Wine & Whisky Week later this year from Wednesday 31 October to Sunday 11 November 2018 at Suntec City Tower 4 East Atrium Level 1 that will run daily from 11am to 10pm.
Wine and spirits retail chain 1855 The Bottle Shop‘s Wine & Whisky Week has taken on a life of its own. Since debuting in 2016 the indoor wine and whisky sales exhibition has become among the largest of such events, and has become a biannual affair. Earlier this year the summer edition was a smashing success, but the upcoming Christmas edition is set to become even bigger with over 500 wine and spirit labels from over 10 countries including France, Italy, Chile, Scotland, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, USA and Spain to be featured at attractive discounts.
Coravin Tasting Bar
Aside from having access to over 100 labels available for complimentary sampling during the 12-day event, for the first time there will be a special ‘Coravin Tasting Bar’ showcasing 100-pointer ultra-premium wines available by the glass; prices start from just S$8 a glass, and a tasting flight of all five 100-pointers will also be available at a special price of S$65.
Labels available here include top Chilean wines Almaviva and Clos Alpalta by Casa Lapostolle; two of the most historic wineries in Bordeaux – Chateau Pontet-Canet and Chateau Pape Clement; the iconic crown jewel of Rhone with Hermitage La Chapelle by Paul Jaboulet Aine.
Auchentoshan 30 Years Old Single Cask Project
For this event, 1855 The Bottle Shop has also partnered with Auchentoshan to specially handpick a single sherry cask whisky to create a limited edition 30YO expression for a Singapore exclusive. The lowlands Scottish distillery located on the outskirts of Glasgow is best known for being among the few in Scotland to triple distill their whiskies, and this expression is limited to just 383 bottles in the world.
“All will be exclusive to 1855 The Bottle Shop. The whisky boxes are embellished with hand-written ‘Singapore 2018’ calligraphy,” says 1855 The Bottle Shop managing director Lim Jing Zhe.
One of the hallmarks of Wine & Whisky Week are its various masterclasses, and this edition is no different. There will be four masterclasses that will see a wine masterclass with Master of Wine Mark Pardoe, Buying Director of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London, on Sunday 4 November, and a vertical wine tasting of Margaux classified growth winery Chateau Pouget that will feature a tasting flight four vintages of Chateau Pouget.
