Described as the “largest retail event of its kind in Asia,” the collection will offer rare and fine wine, Champagne and spirits at the T Galleria by DFS from 7-30 November before moving to the DFS Flagship retail store in Terminal 3 st Changi Airport.

DFS commented that it has “curated an astounding collection of over 60 pieces from 47 of the world’s most legendary houses” with over 27 rare Armagnacs, baijius, Cognacs, Scotch whiskies and single malt whiskies making up the spirits collection this year.

Spirits highlights include the debut of the Martell Hidden Gems, two individual eaux-de-vie dating from 1875 and 1898, the Macallan Five Decades Collection in honour of Singapore’s 50th anniversary and the Glenfiddich 50 Years Old.

On the wine and Champagne front there will be 29 bottles “of exceptional vintage” including a case of the 1939 Château Cheval Blanc released from the cellar for the first time, an ex-Château SG50 vertical magnum Lafite Rothschild and the Krug Trilogy of Clos d’Ambonnay 1996, 1998 and 2000.

The DFS Group’s group chairman and CEO, Philippe Schaus said: “Masters of Wines and Spirits is 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 of spirits, wines and tobacco, Brooke Supernaw continued: “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.”
