Too many whiskies, too little time!

Before you jet off on your next holiday, stop and taste the whiskies at the DFS Whiskey Festival happening at Singapore Changi Airport from now until July 1. The second edition is bigger and better with eight DFS locations across Asia, Middle East and North America celebrating the event at the same time.

There are over 300 spirits to sample, including rare and limited edition bottles you won’t find anywhere else. We’re particularly excited about the bottles of the Suntory Chita Single Grain, an award-winning Hibiki blend that’s hard to find; Royal Salute Polo Collection, a limited edition label created in honour of Queen Elizabeth; and the Bowmore 10 Years Old.

Don’t be shy to join in on the fun even if you’re new to the drink. There are whiskey experts who can help you discover your preferred tastes through a flavour profiling.

If you happen to visit on a weekend, there will be plenty of activities at Terminal 2 and 3 to look forward to. This weekend, Johnnie Walker and Singleton’s brand advocate, Kim Tan, will take you through the brand’s famous labels and tastes.

The following weeks are dedicated to The Balvenie featuring brand ambassador Neil Strachan (June 16 and 27), John Dewars & Sons featuring brand ambassador Euan Douglas Auld (June 18 and 19), The Macallan, Glenrothes and Highland Park featuring brand advocate Randall Tan (June 23 and 24), and Chivas Mizunara featuring brand ambassador Paul Nealon (June 30, July 1).

Five more weeks of merry drinking? Cheers to that!
