I’m pretty new at Whisky, no doubt, but I always enjoy a good aromatic Scotch or some smooth Japanese single malt.

Whisky Journey is organised by The Whisky Store, one of the pioneers in the local whisky scene. The organisers had originally planned for Whisky Journey’s debut as a two-day weekend event in May. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event has since pivoted to a restaurant and bar trail that ensures Whisky Journey remains an inclusive, educational and celebratory whisky event.

At the same time, the innovative concept hopes to reinvigorate the local F&B sector and bring the Singapore bar scene together while prioritising the safety of guests.

From 11-20 December, guests can visit FIFTEEN (15) restaurants and bars island-wide and have the opportunity to taste whiskies ranging from family-owned boutique distilleries to renowned international brands. Each venue will be paired with a whisky distillery and offer a tasting menu, samples of highly sought-after casks and rare bottles at wholesale prices.

Some of the listed bars and restaurants will also delight guests with unique whisky pairings. To truly celebrate whisky culture and ensure an enjoyable experience for all, restaurant and bar staff will be trained by the distilleries to share tasting insights and experiences.

This unique 10-day F&B extravaganza also hopes to offer a new way for guests to celebrate the holiday season with loved ones – through a unique travel experience one golden-hued dram at a time.

The revamped Whisky Journey concept is also focused on supporting local F&B businesses, bars in particular, during these challenging times.
