Priced at S$99, each box includes four 100ml samples of spirits from around the world with a choice of Rum, Gin or Whisky, along with educational tasting notes and videos for a home tasting experience. Perfect for holiday gifting season, experiential gift sets are also available from top brands such as Westward Whiskey (including a bottle of Westward American Single Malt, two rocks glasses and two sets of spices by Decker BBQ, S$129) and West Winds Gin (featuring West Winds Broadside Navy strength gin, two rocks glasses, garnishes and a tasting card, S$140).
For the most discerning spirits drinkers, Academy of Drinks has secured an allocation of the highly awarded and ultra-rare collection from The Last Drop Distillers. The offering includes a trilogy of whiskies from the famed Glenrothes Distillery dating from 1968, 1969, and 1970 (300 bottles of each available globally), a Grand Champagne Cognac from 1959 (only 21 bottles available globally), and a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey produced by the lauded Buffalo Trace Distillery in 1980 (only 240 bottles available globally). These collection worthy bottles are available by pre-order only with very limited quantities.
