Master Classes and Whisky Panel

The 2018 Masters of Wines and Spirits event will feature two exceptional master classes to inspire and enrich guests, as well as a whisky panel discussion featuring four of the world’s leading experts.

The first in this year’s Classes with the Masters is The Balvenie Master Class Workshop – Single Malt Whisky hosted by The Balvenie Malt Master, David C. Stewart MBE.

Mr Stewart will discuss how craftsmanship is brought to life at The Balvenie and guide guests through the entire Chapter 3 set of the DCS Compendium, including a tasting of the oldest Balvenie expression ever released. The second Master Class, the Château Latour Master Class Workshop – Wine, hosted by Rufus Beazley, Sales and Marketing Manager for Château Latour Asia Pacific, will take visitors through a vertical tasting across decades of exceptional Château Latour products.

Presented by The Whiskey House, The Whisky Panel will be moderated by DFS’ own Director of Spirits, Frederik Vanden Bulcke and will feature a panel discussion on whisky experts Stephanie MacLeod from John Dewar & Sons (Aultmore – Single Malt Whisky), Dr Kirstie McCallum from Bunnahabhain (Single Malt Whisky), Chole Wood from Bruichladdich (Single Malt Whisky) and David Croll from The Kyoto Distillery (Whisky and Gin).

The Collection

More than 30 Cognacs and whiskies include The Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 3: Secrets of the Stock Model, an eagerly anticipated release that pays tribute to Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE’s masterful skill, knowledge, and custodianship in managing The Balvenie’s precious aged stocks. The Model comprises five extremely rare single-cask single-malt bottling, ranging in age from 13 to 55 years.

The Jean-Paul Camus 1945 Private Reserve, an exclusive blend for DFS Masters of Wines and Spirits, comes in a hand-carved crystal carafe with silver details that recreates a model designed in 1883 by the Cristalleries de Baccarat for Jules Grévy, President of the French Republic. The outstanding Louis XIII Le Jeroboam with T.T. Trunks Paris piece is a contemporary design that brings a radical new twist to trunk accessories. The aluminum and steel structure holds three small cases made of okume wood, each encased in natural milled buckskin with Alcantara trimmings.

A rare cellar release from Japan is the Karuizawa 1960 Cask #5627. Possibly the oldest cask of Japanese whisky ever bottled, this 1960 single cask yielded just 41 bottles, achieving legendary status amongst connoisseurs and collectors.

From the world of Scotch Single Malts, The Aultmore 31 Year Old Exceptional Cask (Cask no. 1635) is part of John Dewar & Sons Fine Scotch Whisky Emporium which showcases the rare releases of some of the finest and most delectable single cask and single malt expressions. Specially created for Masters of Wines and Spirits, Aultmore Cask no.1635 has the color of antique leather and on the nose, the Oloroso sherry adds weight and complexity, complimented by notes of vanilla, butterscotch, and Seville oranges. The Bruichladdich Special Release showcases three exceptional distillery releases from 1988, 1989 and 1990, presented as the oldest and rarest whiskies of Bruichladdich. Created and bottled on the remote Hebridean island home of Islay, there are only six bottles per edition. From the Bunnahabain distillery, built in 1881, and deriving its name from the Gaelic, Bunnahabhain (Bu-na-ha-venn), meaning “mouth of the river”, comes the Bunnahabhain 1980 Canasta Finish. With only 20 units available, this rare cellar release offers a rich oakiness balanced with sweet dried fruit, treacle toffee, black coffee, cocoa, roasted nuts, and a hint of coastal brininess.

Also from Scotland is The Macallan Fine & Rare Master’s selection, specially created for Masters of Wines and Spirits, this unique collection features five fine and rare vintages in 70cl, complemented by savoring samples in 5cl miniatures. The Glenglassaugh Single Cask Collection 1972-1976 is an elegant, unique and rare selection of bottles, offering the whiskey connoisseur a lush, ripe Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky experience. A rare release from The Ladyburn distillery is the Ladyburn 1974, a single malt from William Grant & Sons’ treasured ancient reserves of maturing whisky.

More than 30 prestige wines and champagnes are showcased in this year’s collection, including the Harlan Estate Double Magnum 100 Point Trifecta from the United States, a special collection created for DFS as an exclusive release of three vintages in double magnum format and representing three of the most highly regarded vintages produced by Harlan to date. From Australia comes the Penfolds G3, a unique wine entwining three vintages of an Australia icon, Penfolds Grange, spanning seven years. French wines in this year’s collection include The Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux 2010 Double Magnum; the epitome of great Pavillon Blanc vintages. A fine and elegant wine, the 2010 has an exquisite richness and a perfect balance on the palate, thanks to higher than average acidity. Chateau Latour’s Vertical Magnum release provides a rare opportunity to collect six of the most exceptional vintages produced by Latour; the 1996, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2010.

With only one set being released of the Petrus Magnum Collection 2006, 2007 and 2011, one lucky wine lover will experience one of the famous wine labels in the world.

After March 25, the Masters of Wines and Spirits curated collection will be available for travelers and shoppers at DFS, Singapore Changi Airport’s Wines and Spirits Duplexes at Terminals 2 and 3.

T Galleria by DFS launches exclusive collection “From Venice with Love” celebrating the most romantic city in the world

T Galleria by DFS launches exclusive collection “From Venice with Love” celebrating the most romantic city in the world

 

MACAU, 2017-Mar-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — T Galleria by DFS, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, is proud to announce the launch of “From Venice with Love”, an exclusive collection of over 50 covetable products celebrating the most romantic city in the world, Venice, and our love of travel. Inspired by the colors of Italy and the opening of T Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice, DFS partnered with over 30 brands across the retailer’s five pillars of luxury to create the exclusive collection available in T Galleria and DFS stores worldwide beginning March 1. From the best of Italian fashion to fragrance to food, the collection features a range of international and Italian designers with standout pieces from Armani, Aquazzura, Gucci, Longines, Salvatore Ferragamo and Valentino.

“For centuries, Venice has inspired generations of craftsmen with its heritage of luxury. With the opening of our first European location at T Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice, we wanted to create a collection that epitomizes a sense of place and captures the essence of Italy for travelers visiting DFS locations all over the world,” said Sibylle Scherer, President Merchandising and Consumer Marketing, DFS Group.

Located on the Grand Canal, a few steps away from the famous Rialto Bridge and within walking distance from St. Mark’s Square, T Fondaco dei Tedeschi occupies one of the city’s most venerated buildings, the 800-year old Fondaco dei Tedeschi, which began its life as a place of exchange for northern merchants and was used for centuries to trade spices, silk and other goods between the Orient and Europe. Renowned for its curated collection of over 200 brands, the Alajmo family’s latest restaurant AMO and an Events Pavilion dedicated to showcasing Venice’s arts and culture, T Fondaco dei Tedeschi is a destination unto itself, encapsulating the spirit of Venice within its ancient walls.

The launch of “From Venice with Love” corresponds with the debut of T Galleria’s Spring 2017 campaign –  “Love of Travel” which follows British model Alex Libby and Hong Kong fashion blogger Cindy Ko as they embark on a journey of discovery through the maze of Venice’s streets and canals, all captured by British documentary photographer Tom Craig.

“This season we were inspired by travel and the way a place or experience shapes and changes you. Alex and Cindy bring that journey to life as they share their adventure of exploration, uncovering Venice’s beauty, art, architecture, music and people. Through Tom’s lens, we created a visual love affair with Venice, sharing with our customers that joy of discovering something for the first time and providing a new take on the Floating City,” said John Gerhardt, Senior Vice President Creative Branding Direction, DFS Group.

Throughout March, April and May, customers can immerse themselves in the campaign across DFS’ 17 airport and 18 downtown T Galleria stores as well as online and on DFS’ social media channels. Visitors to DFS.com will encounter a dedicated microsite that utilizes 360-degree video to transport viewers to hotspots around Venice, including the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Harry’s Bar and T Fondaco dei Tedeschi. In stores, shoppers will discover window displays and photo opportunities that serve as jumping off points to their next journey as well as art installations and in store activations that bring the spirit of Venice to life.

All T Galleria and DFS stores will have dedicated pop-up spaces to showcase the “From Venice with Love” collection, allowing travelers to take home a piece of Italy no matter which DFS location they visit.

“Ultimately, both our campaign and collection speak to a value at the core of the DFS experience – that thrill of discovery and passion for travel,” added Scherer. “We’re confident travelers will love joining us for this new and exciting journey as they continue to make memories with DFS.”

Discover the exclusive “From Venice with Love” collection of great gifts and covetable pieces starting March 1 at T Galleria and DFS stores worldwide.
