We are entering a time where alcohol appreciation has far surpassed the confines of bars. In Singapore, there is a near-constant flurry of booze-related happenings, whether it be festivals, fairs, new distilleries surfacing, and so on. We can’t deny that we are a nation that loves our drink, but we are also always on the hunt for new experiences to crank up that love. In that spirit (ha ha), Oakwood Premier OUE has announced a gin-themed staycation package in collaboration with the homegrown Brass Lion Distillery.

The team behind the Oakwood serviced apartments know that one of the best ways to imbibe is in the comfort of your own home, but since we Singaporeans love our staycations, the Oops, I’ve Ginned! package now lets you enjoy boozing in a setting that feels like a swankier version of your own domain.

Aside from having a luxurious one-room serviced apartment for the duration of your staycation, the package entitles you to numerous gin-related activities.

Cocktails galore

When you enter your apartment, you’ll be greeted with a full-sized bottle of the Brass Lion Distillery’s Singapore Dry Gin and a mix of ingredients like chrysanthemum honey and sparkling lychee tea to create your own gin cocktail.

If you don’t fancy mixing up your own in your room just yet, then the bar has three signature cocktails created with Brass Lion gin for you to enjoy, spanning classics to new age recipes.

The best part to enhance your appreciation of the drink you’re sipping on is to know the craft that goes behind it. With this staycation, the hotel will charter a tour for you to Brass Lion Distillery’s headquarters where you will get to see how this Singaporean gin is made, explore the botanicals that go into the liquor, and enjoy a tasting flight of the three different expressions the distillery produces.

The Oops, I’ve Ginned! package beats booking a staycation and merely drinking at the nearest bar, as it has an educational edge as well. Plus, it has launched just in time for World Gin Day on 8 June — we can’t think of better ways to celebrate the occasion.

The Oops, I’ve Ginned package is priced at S$380++ a night, with complimentary breakfast for two. The package will run every weekend, with bookings until 20 November 2019 from stays within the window of 1 June to 1 December 2019. Click here for more information.
