Wine retailer Bottles & Bottles opens the second outlet of its popular drink-in concept 8 by Bottles & Bottles in Great World City.
Even an ongoing pandemic can’t stop a good concept – Bottles & Bottles has launched a new outlet of 8 by Bottles & Bottles, this time at Great World City right smack in the middle of central Singapore.
If you’re not familiar with 8 by Bottles & Bottles, it is the bottle shop’s drink-in concept, first unveiled back in June last year with their debut outlet at Changi Airport Terminal 3. The idea is simple. While the original chain of Bottles & Bottles operated as bottle retail shops, 8 by Bottles & Bottles allows you to buy and drink on site at bottle shop prices with no extra charge. Even better, you’re allowed to order food in from surrounding F&B establishments to pair with your drinks with no extra charge. For example, one partner dining eatery is Japanese charcoal grill restaurant Tajimaya, which offers a special menu for customers of 8 by Bottles & Bottles.
Another difference? While Bottles & Bottles offers a largely wine selection, 8 by Bottles & Bottles carries a far more eclectic range that includes spirits and sake in addition to wine.
All of which means the latest Great World City addition will be an entirely fun new way to imbibe in that sprawling mall. Sakes include those from highly-acclaimed Dassai, but also Kochi Prefecture cult favourites Suigei and Keigetsu.
“8 by Bottles & Bottles continues to provide everyone the opportunity to explore different wines, spirits and sake, this time conveniently in Great World City. With a range of accessible to premium beverages, and the same bring-your-own-food policy, we’re excited to see the new pairings and experiences that’ll be shaped around this new location,” says Koh Chin Liang, owner of Bottles & Bottles.
To officially launch the new 8 by Bottles & Bottles outlet at Great World City, Bottles & Bottles has partnered with leading Australian wine producer Penfolds for a special 15-day pop up. From 1 to 15 February 2022, the new Great World City outlet will be cloaked in Penfolds colours, and will be offering two special wine tasting flights for patrons. There’s the introductory flight of Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling 2020, Max’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Bin 8 2019 and Bin 28 2019 at S$20 (7cl pour/glass); for seasoned oenophiles, there’s a more exclusive flight consisting of Bin 389 2019, St. Henri Shiraz 2018, RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018 and Grange 2017 at S$128 (7cl pour/glass).
