DFS is holding the eighth edition of its annual showcase of the rarest and finest alcohol from all over the world, in Singapore on 23 and 24 March.

Called ‘Masters of Wines and Spirits’, the event will feature 140 of the rarest and finest whiskies, wines, Cognacs and Champaign internationally. DFS said the theme for this year ‘Masters at Work’ pays homage to those who have acquired complete knowledge or skill in a subject, technique or artform and whose passionate commitment to their task continues to raise the bar for all others in the field.

Six masters will be featured at the event – Brooke Supernaw of DFS as Master of Curation, Ewan Gunn of Diageo as Master of Whisky, Sarah Burgess of The Macallan as Master of Malt, Fabrice Papin of Château Lafite Rothschild as Master of Wine, Hidetsugu Ueno of Bar High Five as Master of Cocktails and DJ Arthur Bray as Master of Music.

The event is held at Infinite Studios, where guests will be taken on an interactive and immersive journey through activations and experiences that explore each brand’s heritage.

Brooke Supernaw, Senior Vice President Spirits, Wine, Tobacco and Gifts, DFS Group said that the event will showcase an outstanding collection of more than 140 wines and spirits from 60 of the world’s legendary wine and spirits houses.

“Here at DFS, we take pride in curating an ever-growing collection of wines and spirits that become more exclusive, bespoke, rare or limited-edition each year, and which capture the heritage and craftsmanship of each brand,” she said.

The 140-piece strong curation features items such as the oldest whisky ever released by The Macallan family, The Macallan 72 Year Old in Lalique – The Genesis Decanter; a set of three extremely rare vintages, The Château Lafite Rothschild Double Magnum Collection; and an exceptionally unique bottle produced from the owner’s original stocks - Port Ellen’s 39 Year Old. The collection will also be showcased and celebrated at Changi Airport through a series of activations at Terminals 2 and 3 until the end of April.

DFS Masters of Wines and Spirits is part of the DFS Masters Series, a signature programme of international exhibitions which aim to showcase DFS’ leadership and innovation in curating and creating exceptional experiences across its five pillars of luxury: Wines and Spirits, Beauty and Fragrances, Watches and Jewelry, Fashion and Accessories, and Food and Gifts.
