The Whiskey Festival offers guests an opportunity to really understand our brands, their craftsmanship and their heritage."

The Festival activities will take place at The Whiskey House, located in Terminal 2 (T2) and Terminal 4 (T4), at DFS Singapore, Changi Airport. Since opening in July 2016 in T2 and in November 2017 in T4, The Whiskey House has been a popular spot for travelers and whiskey aficionados alike.
