The festive season inches closer, hinting at more parties to be hosted, and more booze that needs to be drunk. If your home supply is running low, or if you’re just an avid alcohol collector, head down to Wine & Whisky Week 2016 from today to 13 November to shop for your favourite tipples from over 500 labels.

While it’s termed Wine & Whisky Week, that’s not all you’ll get. Sake, gin, champagne and more are available throughout the fair (albeit in smaller amounts). Wine lovers can look to decent price slashes on all bottles, including rare and exclusive drinks from over 200 producers in 20 countries, including your usual Old and New World vineries, as well as Chile, Mexico, Germany, China and more.

1855 The Bottle Shop are the folks behind the fair, and their accolade of Singapore’s Wine Retailer of the Year promises that there is no sacrifice on quality despite lowered prices.

What’s better than a glass of champagne? More filled glasses

Aside from it being a massive sale, there are masterclasses offered amongst the three weekend, targeted towards budding wine and whisky connoisseurs who are passionate to learn more about the craft behind their choice poison from the best. Each class will be held at Bistro 1855, limited to 20 seats each. Tickets can be purchased here.

If you intend to head down to browse, sample and purchase any bottles at Wine & Whisky Week 2016, we’d recommend to fully explore the staggering range. There are even labels exclusive to 1855, or unique vintages from small-scale boutique wineries like Opus One, Tempus Two, Shinas Estate, Lethbridge, Chauteau Pichon Longueville, Vineaceous and more, so it’s an opportune fair to visit should you enjoy sampling new, complex flavours.

Go drink and be merry.

Wine & Whisky Week is held at Suntec City Tower 4, East Atrium, Level 1
