New comers to the Rum Gallery include Takamaka Rum from Seychelles, Rockpool Rum from Singapore, Khukri Rum from Nepal, and Renegade Cane Rum - the latest terroir project from spirits icon, Mark Reynier, who will also be leading two masterclasses on both Saturday and Sunday.
Rum afficionados can also get downright geeky with rum gurus such as Richard Seale from Foursquare Distillery, Gregory Vernant from Neisson, as well as Daniele Biondi and Angelo Canessa from La Maison & Velier, who will be representing an extensive portfolio from Hampden Estate to Clairin to Providence; a new distillery based in Haiti.
Our personal favourite from our panel of judges is Foursquare Distillery!
FROM SPEYSIDE TO ISLAY, EXPLORE TERROIRS & MARKS AT WHISKY LIVE SINGAPORE For the first time ever, the masterclasses at Whisky Live Singapore will be free for all ticket holders to attend; the amazing line up features powerhouses such as Matthew Cordiner from Aberfeldy, Mark Reynier of Waterford and Renegade distilleries, Richard Seale espousing the Philosophy behind Foursquare Rums, and Robert Caldwell, pushing the boundaries of Irish Whiskey. Guests to Whisky Live just need to show up 10 minutes before the class starts to secure a seat.
The return of Whisky Live means the return of Singapore’s largest pop-up bottle store in any single weekend. This year, La Boutique is virtual, which offers a more seamless shopping experience, as well as the perk of no bulky packages to carry around!

To mark the debut of Singapore’s first ever Rum Gallery is a special guest shift from Baba au Rum, ranked #20 in the World’s Top Bars, this specialist rum bar will be flying in especially from Athens, Greece to wow Whisky Live Singapore guests with amazing cocktails.
....and our Personal Favourite, the creation of a Collectors Square - this is a superb idea and brings finesse and style for whisky lovers to partake of their rare and awesome whiskys, all in one central hub within the show! Fantastic!
