We could all use a drink or two given the Phase 2 Heightened Alert that will last until June 13. If sake is your poison of choice, you’ll be glad to know that online bottle shop Clink Clink is offering sake bundles curated by master sake sommelier Joshua Kalinan. These are available throughout the month as part of the e-commerce platform’s Global Sommelier Series, showcasing what leading guest sommeliers drink on their days off.

“It may sound a bit evangelical, but I really want to preach the gospel of sake within Singapore,” explained Kalinan, whose exclusive curations put the spotlight on the lesser-known sake breweries that are quietly shaking up the sake industry.
