The event will be held at Andaz Singapore, which is situated near Marina Bay at the crossroads of the cultural districts – Kampong Glam and Little India. The venue effortlessly combines the rich history of the city, sparking off a sense of discovery through local touches such as the intimate shophouse-style restaurants, décor colours, and South East Asian inspired textures.

“To taste and experience whisky is as much art as it is science," said Mr. Mathieu Musnier, General Manager, La Maison du Whisky. “Every year, Whisky Live Singapore brings forth unique and immersive experience to discover a large selection of world-class whiskies and fine spirits; and indulge in the art of whisky appreciation through knowledge-sharing and tasting.”

This year's Whisky Live features a sampling of 64 exclusive whisky and spirit brands from across the fast-growing cocktail industry, including, for the first time ever, Blanton’s Bourbon Whiskey United States, and many more.

The Masterclass Rooms will also showcase the exclusive launch of the new Bruichladdich Black Art.
