Heritage-inspired cocktails to celebrate the launch of the new DFS Wine & Spirits store at Changi T4
November 27th, 2017
“Walk-through” retail concept includes cocktail mixing and guided tasting
Luxury retailer DFS Group launches its Wines & Spirits store in the newly opened Terminal 4 of Changi Airport. Spanning over 1,800 feet, the retail store boasts of more than 300 brands, three special spaces and a “walk-through” retail experience. Thanks to its unique layout, DFS Wine & Spirits allow travellers to seamlessly select their liquor, sample exotic beers, and try their hand at mixing cocktails through collaborative bar spaces.
The newest of these zones, The Cocktail Bar, is an open space that invites travellers to learn the basic of cocktail-making. Its contemporary décor sports a cosy bar that houses a selection of liquors, inviting travellers to pick up their favourite brands to mix at home. The Craft Collection showcases craft and small-batch beers and spirits from around the world, with three craft beers available on tap and a rotating selection if spirits for tasting. Lastly, the tour ends with The Whiskey House – 100 different whiskies are neatly categorized according to their basic flavour profiles, ready to be sampled with guided tasting and food pairings.
In order to celebrate the launch of the store, DFS has partnered with Crackerjack’s award-winning bartender, Peter Chua, to create three cocktails inspired by Singapore’s beloved treats. The Signature Heritage Cocktails include Coco Gnac, a refreshing blend of pineapple juice, coconut milk and kaya, intertwined with the richness of Hennesy VSOP Cognac. Fluffy Pandan resembles Singapore’s national cake, starring the flavours of sweet coconut, citrus, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Mancino Bianco Vermouth. Suka-Suka Melaka, inspired by Gula Melaka, is made with Chivas Mizunara Whisky, Walnut Bitters, Chocolate Bitters, and Tutu Kueh Syrup.
All three cocktails are available for sampling every Friday and Saturday until the end of December.
