Southeast Asia’s largest whisky and spirit show is back in Singapore for the fifth year.

Coined Whisky Live 2014: Collections, this year’s event celebrates the finest of whiskies with its latest addition of the newly dedicated Collector Room.

Held at Raffles Hotel, the event will showcase 40 brands of whiskies alongside 30 brands of spirits, some of which are rare bottles and craft spirits. Expect tasting sessions, creative food pairings by Burnt Ends restaurant, cheese pairings by The Cheese Ark and masterclasses led by industry experts.

Another highlight will be a contest that gathers the very best of Singapore’s cocktail bars behind the same counter. This friendly competition will see each of the following bars compete against the rest in creating a special cocktail for the Whisky Live pop up cocktail bar: 28 Hong Kong Street, Anti:Dote, Jigger and Pony, L’Aiglon and the Library.

“Singapore is a country with one of the highest consumption of Scotch whisky, and has great influence in Southeast Asia; making it the perfect location to showcase the best of whisky and spirits in this region,” shares Mr. Julien Nicolay, General Manager of La Maison du Whisky, the organiser of Whisky Live. “Local and regional demand and appreciation of whisky and spirit are on an unprecedented high, and this is a good platform to experience a selection of the world’s whiskies and spirits for novices, enthusiasts and experts.”
