The Tatler Bar is Your New Online Destination For the Finest Spirits and Champagnes
The past five years have seen the rise in popularity of premium spirits, as evinced by the many bars and online shops that have popped up to cater to this booming market. Pandemic or not, it is showing no signs of slowing down, and Tatler Singapore quickly seized the opportunity to move its acquired Luxglove’s whisky and spirits vertical onto a better-integrated platform, which launches today.
Rebranded The Tatler Bar, it is the discerning imbiber's latest destination for premium sips from the world’s finest brands. A focus on prized whiskies remains, though the curated collections have been expanded beyond spirits to include premium champagnes and sakes, as well as bar accessories.

There are over 200 bottles on offer (with more to come in the coming days), some of which are not easily found in the market. Arguably the most covetable of them all is the Karuizawa 31 Year Old Sapphire Geisha Series, a single cask bottling from the famed distillery in Japan that closed its doors for good nearly two decades ago. It is aged in sherry casks for 31 years and is prized the world over for its rich and savoury flavours, the same style of whisky that had put Karuizawa on the map.
Fans of The Macallan will be glad to know that we also have available The Macallan Masters Decanter Series, created by the brand's master distillers and packaged in Lalique crystal vessels. And those looking for equally prized spirits from various other regions across the globe will certainly appreciate the appeal of the Caroni Navy Rum 18 Year Old from another closed distillery, as well as the likes of the Diplomatico Ambassador Rum by the award-winning Venezuelan producer and the Kokuryu Ryu Daiginjo by one of the top sake makers.
“We wanted to offer something more curated to our customers, so we’ve added collections to our offerings,” explains whisky specialist Jon Bauyon. That said, they will also find specially put together bundles, such as the French Concoction bundled with a shaker and glassware. This also comes with recipe ideas aimed to inspire customers to get creative with their drinks. From the whisky set, you'll also find the Asian Treasure, an ensemble of the finest whiskies from various countries in Asia.
Champagnes, Bauyon adds, have always been popular in the market, "so our team of in-house specialists have curated an impressive selection, ranging from the rare and fine Krug Vintage 2004 and Dom Ruinart Rose 2002 to everyday sips such as Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label".
To enhance the customer experience, The Tatler Bar also boasts a physical space located at the Tatler House in Bukit Pasoh Road, where customers can sample some of the whiskies and other fine tipples they want to add to their collection. Customers can also look forward to exclusive events and regular masterclasses held on the premises.
