Johnnie Walker House, an international network of luxury Scotch whisky embassies, has launched its by-invite only private suite in Singapore, making it the 12th establishment by the whisky brand that offers unique whisky experiences for its members. The exclusive space will feature its prestige range of rare and collectible Scotch whiskies that are not available through any trade or retail channels.
The latest outpost of Johnnie Walker House, located in the Diageo office, overlooks the historical trading port of Boat Quay near the mouth of the Singapore River – where the first bottles of Johnnie Walker would have passed through decades ago. Access to Johnnie Walker House Singapore is offered to private collectors and fine whisky enthusiasts only by personal invitation. The whisky embassy will offer some of the rarest expressions of blended and single malt Scotch whiskies from Diageo’s 28 operating and 11 closed malt distilleries. Among them are collector’s editions such as Brora and Port Ellen.
The space pays a nod to gentlemen’s club with its understated aesthetics, featuring contemporary leather furniture and glass and metal accents. The floor-to-ceiling wall display shows off some of the most sought after whisky blends in specially-commissioned artistic packaging.
In addition to experiences steeped in heritage, craftsmanship and exceptional quality that customers have come to associate with the brand, Singapore will also be home to a private client team of Scotch whisky experts who can provide guests with advice on whisky cellar curation and direct access to Diageo’s blending rooms, distilleries and craftsmen – including the Master Blender himself, Dr Jim Beveridge. Guests will also have exclusive access to services, such as the John Walker & Sons bespoke Signature Blend and unique Casks of Distinction programme.
