New whiskies on Singapore’s shores

#37 Food Morrison Bowmore

Morrison Bowmore Distillers, one of the oldest distilleries in the world, recently launched three single malt whiskies, Auchentoshan, Bowmore and Glen Garioch

Founded in 1779, Bowmore is the first recorded distillery on Islay [pronounced ‘eye-la’] and one of the oldest in all of Scotland.
Bowmore Single Malt is acknowledged to be one of the finest and most perfectly-balanced whiskies in the world.

Gordon Dundas, Brand Ambassador for Europe and Asia for Morrison Bowmore Distillers, guided guests through the different tastes at the launch.


“Our No.1 Vaults are now legendary in status, not only for being the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland but also for being the only one below sea level,” said Dundas.

The distinctive combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, their floor-malted barley that has been carefully smoked in the peat-fired kiln, the finest oak casks left to mature in the No. 1 Vaults, Islay’s natural environment and a dedicated team of craftsmen together create the perfect balance.

The Range

Auchentoshan is the only Scottish distillery to insist on triple-distilling its whisky, resulting in a smooth, pure taste.

Bowmore’s No. 1 Vaults, the only one below sea level, give its whiskies their smoky peaty-ness.

Glen Garioch has, for over 200 years, kept true to the tradition of handcrafting a range of natural, non chill-filtered single malt whiskies.

Beerfest Whiskey Lounge

For the first time at Beerfest Asia, held last weekend, there was a Whiskey Lounge.

Morrison Bowmore whiskies featured included the Auchentoshan 12 Years Old, the Auchentoshan Three Wood, the Bowmore 12 Years Old, and the Bowmore 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’.

Bowmore whisky is available at The Beam Cellar, Mountbatten Square, 229 Mountbatten Road, #01-03/07 & #01-17/19, Singapore 398007.
