Spirited discoveries

Line your stomachs, the annual DFS Masters of Wines and Spirits showcase is back for its fifth year running. Come 6 November, four levels of T Galleria by DFS Singapore will play host to over 60 fine spirits, wines, and Champagnes from the world over. Complimentary drams and tasting flights will give even the most seasoned drinkers a taste of undiscovered vintages and rare bottlings. Not sure where to begin? We've shortlisted a few experiences from this month-long showcase that you shouldn't miss. Go ahead, pick your poison:


When: 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28 November 
Where: Level 1, Dom Pérignon Champagne bar
Drink up: French Champagne house Dom Pérignon makes it easy for you to ease into the swing of things with a glass of Dom Pérignon Blanc 2005 — all on the house, of course. Sip on your bubbly at their custom-built bar and let this vintage Champagne impress you with its rich, powerful bouquet.

Single malt whiskies
When: 20, 21, 27 and 28 November
Where: Level 3, Macallan Bar
Drink up: Tasting flights are the name of the game here, but only the best single malt whiskies from The Macallan have come out to play. Besides The Macallan Whisky Maker Edition and The Macallan Estate Reserve, you'll also get to taste The Macallan Rare Cask Black — an unusually smoky whisky that departs from the brand's usual DNA. Looking to pick up a gift for that one friend who has everything? The rare Macallan M — one of the most expensive whiskies around — will be available for purchase. 



When: 6, 7 November 
Where: Level 2, Hennessy Bar
Drink up: Victor Hugo, Churchhill, and Napoleon were all big fans of this grape brandy hailing from western France. If you've never tasted this amber-coloured elixir, now's your time to get acquainted, especially since one of the best cognac houses has set up their very own bar on level 2 of the building. Join the Hennessy ambassadors for a guided tasting of iconic cognacs that includes the Hennessy X.O., Hennessy Privé, Hennessy James Hennessy and Hennessy V.S.O.P.

Hennessy Prive

Bespoke cocktails

When: 20, 21 November
Where: Level 4, cocktail bar
Drink up: You don't have to hike up to Regent Hotel to enjoy the creative cocktails from the hotel's famed Manhattan Bar. That's not to say the drinks aren't worth the trek — the bar has recently earned its place on the 2015 list of World's 50 Best Bars. Since they're popping up right here at level 4 of DFS T Galleria, grab the chance to try the cocktails their bartenders have created specially for this event.
