DFS to host Asia’s largest retail exhibition of Wine and Spirits
On November 7, 2015, DFS Group will unveil its fifth annual Masters of Wines and Spirits collection at T Galleria by DFS in Singapore. Billed as the most prestigious retail event of its kind in Asia, it will showcase rare and fine wine, Champagne and spirits from around the world. More than 60 pieces from 47 of the world’s most notable houses will be celebrated with a series of events throughout the month.
Commenting on the exhibition, Philippe Schaus, DFS Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said: “Masters of Wines and Spirits is truly a reflection of our love of discovery and commitment to bringing our customers the unrivalled experiences they have come to expect from DFS.”
Senior Vice President Spirits, Wines and Tobacco, DFS Group, Brooke Supernaw, added: “This year’s collection for Masters of Wines and Spirits is the culmination of extensive research by DFS’ own wine and spirits experts. Through visits to vineyards, distilleries and cellars across four continents, the team has put together a remarkable collection that will continue our tradition of bringing together the world’s leading wine, Champagne and spirits houses all under one roof. We are also excited to introduce a new category this year bringing exclusively created humidors from some of the leading designers in the world to Masters of Wines and Spirits for the first time.”
Over 27 rare Armagnacs, baijius, Cognacs, Scotch whiskies and single malt whiskies make up the spirits collection this year. Highlights include the debut of the Martell Hidden Gems, two individual eaux-de-vie dating from 1875 and 1898 that are available for the first time at the exhibition. Also key among the standouts is the Glenmorangie Single Cask Collection, a handcrafted display of five extremely rare single cask releases and the only one in existence in the world.
The showcase will also feature over 29 pieces of exceptional vintage from the wine and Champagne world. These include creations from the Champagne and Bordeaux wine regions in France, such as a case of the Chateau Cheval Blanc 1939, in its original wood casing and straw, which will be released from the cellar for the first time.
The curated collection will be unveiled on November 7, coinciding with DFS’ 55th anniversary as well as Singapore’s 50th year of independence, at a gala event at T Galleria by DFS, Singapore and be available for sale until November 30, 2015. It will then be moved to DFS’ flagship wines and spirits duplex store at Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3.
