Whisky Live Singapore 2023 promises to be bigger and better, and will feature an all-new Cocktail and Food Street in its new venue at the Singapore Flyer.
Singapore’s largest and longest-running spirits festival, Whisky Live, returns for its 2023 edition this November. Organised by La Maison du Whisky (LMDW) Asia-Pacific, the show will run for two days on 18 and 19 November at the Singapore Flyer this year.
Yes, it’s an entirely new venue. Having grown from strength to strength over the last few years – and only halted briefly by the pandemic – the festival has outgrown its previous venue at Andaz Singapore.
With the far larger venue at the Singapore Flyer, Whisky Live Singapore 2023 will introduce a new concept first introduced in its Paris edition – a Cocktail and Food Street. So aside from its massively-popular Whisky Hall and Spirits Gallery where ticket holders can sample all manner of fine whiskies and other spirits – as well as masterclasses for enthusiasts to learn more about their favourite tipples – this year there will be an entire section dedicated to all things cocktail. Even better, while the rest of Whisky Live is ticketed as usual, the concurrent Cocktail and Food Street is non-ticketed and open to the general public.
Visitors to Whisky Live Singapore 2023 can expect the largest Whisky Hall yet, a Spirits Gallery showcasing rums, gins, agave-based spirits, and other aged or white spirits, and over 20 free masterclass sessions. Then there’s the new Cocktail and Food Street, which will see various partner bars and food vendors serving up all manner of cocktails and bites. These include the likes of Brewlander, D.Bespoke, Employees Only Singapore, Foxtail, Harry’s, Low Tide, Ume San 100, Sugarhall and White Shades.
Over 3,000 visitors are expected this year.
“Selecting the Singapore Flyer as the venue and adding a Cocktail Street is the cherry on the cake. Hosting the event at such a local landmark lends Whisky Live Singapore a prestigious and significant association,” shared Arthur Morbois, Managing Director of LMDW Asia-Pacific.
“It’s a fresh and original avenue to welcome the friends we’ve made over the span of a decade, and celebrate how Whisky Live Singapore has gone from strength to strength. I’m already excited to say that Cocktail Street is for everyone to enjoy, opening Whisky Live Singapore’s doors to a larger audience who will be able to enjoy delicious cocktails together in a great atmosphere and location,” Arbois added.
