Visit the Biggest Whisky Event of the Year: Whisky Live 2016

By  |  0 Comments

Prepare for a fevered whisky weekend with the seventh edition of Whisky Live this coming weekend.

Undoubtedly the most celebrated of all Whisky events, Whisky Live is the most famous Whisky and Spirit show in the world. A brainchild of La Maison du Whisky, the Paris edition of the event is the biggest Whisky and Spirit show in Europe.

According to La Maison du Whisky, this year’s Whisky Live Singapore will be the biggest one yet, with close to 300 whisky expressions and over 60 whiskey and spirit brands on show. It will also mark the first time The Macallan, Old Pulteney, Balblair and AnCnoc are participating in Whisky Live Singapore. Also returning are old favourites like Glenfiddich, Dalmore, Kavalan, Aberlour, Mortlach, Nikka and many more.

The Collector Room will always be one the highlights of the event, as it is a unique opportunity for whisky aficionados to be able to try rare and highly sought-after bottles from across the world.

Ladies who purchased the VIP pass will also enjoy additional perks. Whisky Live Singapore 2016 will also be introducing the Ladies’ Room, a comfortable and pampering respite offered to all female VIP guests. It features Vaniday-featured salons for guests to be pampered with complimentary beauty services such as makeovers, massages, and facials. To enjoy the session, all you need to do is to flash the Vaniday app (iOS, Android) upon entrance.



Like last year, the show will be hosted at the esteemed Capella Hotel Singapore, set against the picturesque backdrop of the South China Sea. Executive Chef of Capella Hotel Singapore Chef David Nicolas Senia will be creating unique and memorable dining experiences especially for guests attending Whisky Live 2016.

Known for his culinary excellence of drawing inspiration from new experiences with local flavours, Chef David has prepared an exclusive menu where whisky is used as a key ingredient for his dishes. Guests attending the event will be entitled to two portions of dishes per day. Should attendees wish to savour more, the dishes will be available for a small fee.

Star-Studded Cast

Whisky Live Singapore 2016’s stature as a marquee event is matched by its list of distinguished guests in attendance this year: esteemed whisky writer Dave Broom, rum legend Luca Gargano, and master mixologist Rogerio Igarashi Vaz.

Dave Broom will host an exclusive masterclass — a comparative tasting — for the final two Karuizawas bottled — a 1965 Bourbon Cask and a 1965 Sherry Cask. Bottled to celebrate its 10th anniversary in Singapore, La Maison du Whisky will open the bottles for the first time at Whisky Live Singapore 2016.

Rum legend Luca Gargano, known for championing the cause for quality, cask strength rums, will make his return to this year’s Whisky Live and host a masterclass of Velier’s range of premier rums.

Master Mixologist Rogerio Igarashi Vaz, co-founder and chief bartender of Bar Tram and Bar Trench in Japan. Bar Trench was chosen as one of the world’s 100 best bars in 2014 by World’s 50 Best Bars & World’s Best Bars. It will be recreated in Singapore exclusively at Whisky Live Singapore 2016, where Rogerio will be on hand to give guests an unforgettable experience, featuring original and exclusive creations showcasing the latest cocktail trends from Japan.
