The past five years have seen the rise in popularity of premium spirits, as evinced by the many bars and online shops that have popped up to cater to this booming market. Pandemic or not, it is showing no signs of slowing down, and Tatler Singapore quickly seized the opportunity to move its acquired Luxglove’s whisky and spirits vertical onto a better-integrated platform, which launches today.
Rebranded The Tatler Bar, it is the discerning imbiber's latest destination for premium sips from the world’s finest brands. A focus on prized whiskies remains, though the curated collections have been expanded beyond spirits to include premium champagnes and sakes, as well as bar accessories.

There are over 200 bottles on offer (with more to come in the coming days), some of which are not easily found in the market. Arguably the most covetable of them all is the Karuizawa 31 Year Old Sapphire Geisha Series, a single cask bottling from the famed distillery in Japan that closed its doors for good nearly two decades ago. It is aged in sherry casks for 31 years and is prized the world over for its rich and savoury flavours, the same style of whisky that had put Karuizawa on the map.
Fans of The Macallan will be glad to know that we also have available The Macallan Masters Decanter Series, created by the brand's master distillers and packaged in Lalique crystal vessels. And those looking for equally prized spirits from various other regions across the globe will certainly appreciate the appeal of the Caroni Navy Rum 18 Year Old from another closed distillery, as well as the likes of the Diplomatico Ambassador Rum by the award-winning Venezuelan producer and the Kokuryu Ryu Daiginjo by one of the top sake makers.
