Spirits are high at the fourth Whisky Festival organised by DFS, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer. With their first-ever pop-up bar at Changi Airport Terminal 3, The Whisky Festival is a destination itself that brings whisky connoisseurs, enthusiasts, or simply kindred spirits together.
The festival spotlights the crown-jewels of their catalogue such as Glenmorangie Rare Cask 1399, Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 and the Royal Salute 21 Year Old Lost Blend. These never-before-seen whiskies will whisk travelers away with a multi-sensory experience, relaxing them for the journey ahead.
The sentiment of 1920s Jazz Era speakeasy bars that oozes resplendent singularity, certainly entices those with an eye for class. Live jazz performances by singers such as Carol Gomez, Ywenna Carolin and Richard Jackson complete that notion to great effect, leaving travelers with a treat for their ears as well. Travelers have to begin their journey here — at least up till June 10 in the Concourse Space near Gucci and Burberry.
Don’t fear missing out on the whisky experience just because you are at the other terminals of Changi Airport, complimentary whisky tasting and promotions galore at The Tasting Bar (Terminal 2), The Raffles Long Bar (terminal 3) and The Whiskey House (terminal 4) are also available.
If that does not get you excited, perhaps a pair of ferry tickets and city tour to Batam will. All you have to do is spend $140 including any whisky products at arrival hall and it’s yours. Also, stand to win a Glencairn whisky glass with minimum $250 spend on Whisky from the departure hall.
An executive promotion by iShopChangi.com offers the grand prize of an all-expenses paid trip to Scotland for two worth $8000, with four other lucky winners getting a pair of air tickets complemented with distillery tours. To participate, simply spend at least $140 at iShopChangi.com. Talk about leading the high life.
