Whisky Live Returns for it’s 10th Edition!

Whisky Live

Whisky Live 2019, Southeast Asia’s largest premier whisk(e)y and spirits showcase, returns from 9 to 10 November 2019 at Andaz Singapore. The annual event celebrates its momentous 10th anniversary, and brings together master distillers, brand ambassadors, industry experts and over 70 whiskey and spirit brands under one roof.

Whisky Live first launched in Paris in 2004, and has since introduced sold-out editions in Shanghai, Johannesburg, New York, and of course, Singapore. Organised by French spirits house La Maison du Whisky, Whisky Live here has evolved to become a multi-faceted extravaganza, where drink explorers and enthusiasts can Sip, Share & Shop throughout the two-day affair.

“Whisky Live is the biggest, and only premium, spirit-centric showcase in Singapore; the 10- year milestone will see us renew our commitment to elevate the appreciation for whiskies and spirits by connecting the drinkers with the makers; and spotlighting people, product and passion in one celebratory weekend,” shared Mathieu Musnier, General Manager of La Maison du Whisky.

Sip on more than 600 whisky and spirit expressions, be inspired by the passion, knowledge and craft of the industry, or shop amidst a wonderland of rare and sought-after bottlings – all within six immersive experiences at Whisky Live.
