We can all agree that planning a good night out with your buddies takes more effort than you think. The choice of bar, drinks, and ambience can easily make or break the night. So, the folks at The Academy of Drinks (a platform that provides education and tours on distilled spirits like gin and whiskeys) are offering some reprieve, especially for your whiskey-loving friends, through their latest programme — The Whiskey Wander.
This is essentially a tour that takes participants to three different Singapore bars over the span of three hours. At each venue, participants will get to taste, enjoy and learn about whiskeys from industry experts.
Here are four reasons why you should consider Singapore’s latest whiskey tour.
The Whiskey Wander happens every Wednesday evening, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. This consistency makes an easy fit for everyone’s schedule and is the perfect opportunity for some midweek respite. There isn’t a need for a designated driver either, as The Academy of Drinks will chauffeur you from place to place via spacious vehicles like the Toyota Hiace and Mercedes Sprinter.
Spoilt for choice
Depending on what you’re looking for, The Whiskey Wander can be an introduction to international brands such as Michter’s, Bruichladdich, Kavalan, and Teeling. For adventurous whiskey connoisseurs, there will be opportunities to taste a myriad of whiskey styles ranging from Scotch, Bourbon, and Rye, to avant-garde ones from Tasmania and India.
The Whiskey Wander also includes special appearances from brand ambassadors and master distillers, who will provide professional insights on how geographical locations and distillation can affect the taste and production of whiskey. The next event takes place tonight and features Westward Whiskey distiller Christian Krogstad, who will share his knowledge about American Single Malt Whiskey.
Something new, every time
You no longer need to rack your brains thinking about where to go for your next post-work drinks session. A week before the event, The Whiskey Wander will announce its event location to the participants. The Single Cask at Chijmes, Mandarin Oriental’s MO Bar, and La Maison du Whisky are among the participating venues for this event.
Priced at S$128+, The Whiskey Wander is limited to 11 participants per evening, and tickets can be booked at www.academyofdrinks.eventbrite.com.
