Here are some of my favourite labels you should be looking out for.

Making its debut in Singapore and available exclusively at 1855 The Bottle Shop is up and coming winery Viña Vik from Chile. La Piu Belle 2011 (retail price $88) which means “the most beautiful” has a gorgeous and unique bottle. I usually love my reds with a heavier body, so this was right up my alley. Initial scent was grappy and sweet, but has a spicy and peppery undertone. It might be on the heavier side but was still easy to drink.

For something a bit more fancy, Château Gruaud Larose 1998 (retail price $198) is the kind of wine to be appreciated slowly. I love how incredibly smooth it was but still rich in flavour. Slightly tangy with a herbaceous undertone, this is the kind of wine you break out on special occasions.

Call me an old soul, but I do love my whiskeies. Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare (retail price $518) is a special releases that blends irreplaceable whiskies from “ghost” Scotch whisky distilleries that have long since closed and other rare malt and grain whiskies. This premium bottle of elixir was wonderfully smooth with a hint of sweetness, notes of hazelnut and dark chocolate with a smoky finish. It was just divine.

And if you want to learn more about the wines and spirits you drink, 1855 The Bottle Shop will also be hosting masterclass workshops during the event. Classes are $28 each, more information and tickets are available on www.1855thebottleshop.com.

With attractive prizes and prices, you would do yourself a favour and head down to check out 1855 The Bottle Shop’s Wine and Whiskey Week especially if you enjoy a good drink.
