Quaich Bar at South Beach
What to imbibe: Springbank 16 Year Old Barley
Don’t let this unassuming joint in one of Singapore’s newest swanky lifestyle enclaves fool you. Quaich is the second whisky bar helmed by industry veterans Khoon Hui and Joyce Ng, who started their venture with a simple pushcart. More than a decade later and armed with a vast network and wealth of knowledge, the husband-and-wife team is well on their way to nurture a new generation of whisky enthusiasts. More than 800 labels of whisky adorn the wall, with a focus on lesser-known boutique distilleries. Kickstart your foray into whisky with Quaich’s themed tasting journey sets, or snag a spot at the “By the Dram” programme, which offers incredibly rare whiskies priced per dram. At Quaich, moving from curious amateur to whisky connoisseur has never been easier—consider this a fair warning.
“They sometimes buy their whisky by the cask. This is the place for veteran whisky lovers and beginners, as they have a tasting set catered for newbies as well.” — Kyoko
