For the friend who can’t get enough of bubbly, Moët & Chandon’s limited-edition ‘Tie Your Wish’ bottle will make for a great festive treat.

For that single malt Scotch aficionado, impress them with no less than The Singleton of Glen Ord 18 Year Old festive pack.

The recipient of this gift will have a sleek decanter to pour out the amber liquid, perfect for when guests – like yourself – come visiting.
For something festive to pop open at home, try Entier’s La Entier Champagne, fresh from its Christmas Atelier. This bubbly was made in collaboration with boutique champagne grower Laurent Robert.

To make it an even sweeter gift, order this bottle with The Entier Caviar, featuring homegrown brand T’lur’s tropical caviar, bred in Tanjung Malim.
The La Entier Champagne and other assortments can be purchased online and picked up at the restaurant itself.
