DFS launches fourth Whisky Festival at Changi Airport
DFS Group has launched the fourth Whisky Festival at Changi Airport, this one with a pop-up bar.
Aiming to “demystify the whisky-making process”, the festival offers a selection of more than 400 whiskies and many exclusive offers.
Highlights include Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10, Compass Box No Name, No 2, Glenmorangie Rare Cask 1399, Johnnie Walker Black Triple Cask Edition and Royal Salute 21 Year Old Lost Blend.
“The Whisky Festival is one of our favorite celebrations at DFS, providing a great opportunity to showcase this wonderful spirit in a fun and engaging way to whisky connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike,” said Brooke Supernaw, senior VP spirits, wines, tobacco, food and gifts at DFS Group.
“We are delighted to work with some of the best whisky makers in the world to bring this event to life again this year in partnership with Changi Airport Group.”
The pop-up bar, reminiscent of the speakeasy bars of the 1920s Jazz Era, will remain open until June 10. At the bar, travellers can enjoy interactive experiences with whisky tastings, and vaporisers producing scents from floral all the way to smoky and intense.
Live performances by jazz singers including Carol Gomez, Ywenna Carolin and Richard Jackson will feature.
“We are thrilled to partner with DFS Changi once again and bring the annual Whisky Festival to the next level with a pop-up bar for the first time ever. This 1920s-themed bar with its unique interior and collection of never-before-seen whiskies will offer travelers a multi-sensorial travel retail experience, in celebration of all things whisky,” said Teo Chew Hoon, group senior VP, airside concessions, at Changi Airport Group.
After Singapore, the festival will relocate to seven DFS locations across Asia, the Middle East, North America and Hawaii.
