“We are absolutely thrilled that our DFS, Singapore Changi Airport store has been awarded Travel Retailer of the Year by Whisky Magazine and look forward to continuing to deliver innovative experiences and exceptional products for our customers in 2016,” said Brooke Supernaw, DFS Group’s senior Vice President of wines, spirits and tobacco.

“At each of our locations, our aim is to provide our customers with a surprising and delightful shopping experience where they can engage with the brands and products they love and we are particularly proud of DFS, Singapore Changi Airport. From the duplex’s design to the interactive tastings held on site, our customers have loved this new approach to travel retail and we’re delighted the industry has fallen in love as well.”

Opened in May 2015, the store at Changi Airport’s T3 is the DFS group’s global flagship wines and spirits store and has the largest range of single malts currently available in travel retail in Asia Pacific. DFS also features a tasting bar in collaboration with Singapore’s Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel where visitors can have guided tastings and masterclasses in bartending and mixology.

In January, DFS Singapore Changi Airport was also the first travel retail store to be awarded The Whisky Ambassador’s venue accreditation.
