The Singleton x Don Ho – Social Kitchen & Bar The #1 Single Malt in Asia* – The Singleton is shaking things up with a unique whisky social experience that is all about unpretentious chilling, good drinks and mates. Enter – The Singleton Social – a series of social experiences shared with friends that highlights the perfectly balanced flavours of The Singleton.
Approachable and inclusive, Singleton disperses the notion that whisky is prim and proper. Where single malts are perceived to be serious and intimidating, the Singleton is fun and laid-back. For the second edition of The Singleton Social, guests will be offered the opportunity to chill and chat with friends while sipping on drinks such as Tropicana ($14) with Singleton, guava juice and grapefruit soda for a tropical, refreshing libation. Other offerings include the quintessential summer drink, Orchard ($14) concocted with Singleton, apple & pear juice and soda water and the Hopscotch Peach ($14) that consists of Singleton, peach juice, peach liqueur and sea salt that highlights the fruity flavour notes in the Singleton 12YO.
Visitors to The Singleton Social also can try their hand at the Chill & Chat card game filled with hot topics to get the drinks and chatter flowing amongst friends.
Tanqueray No. TEN x 6 Grey Bar & Gin Double Gold honour winner from the Singapore World Spirits Competition, Tanqueray No. TEN partners with speciality gintoneria 6 Grey Bar & Gin to bring classic cocktails Tanqueray TEN Sling ($14) and Tanqueray TEN & Tonic ($12) to Urban Ventures.
The Tanqueray TEN Sling features an uplifting combination of Tanqueray No. TEN gin, grapefruit juice, hibiscusinfused sweet vermouth and Fevertree Soda Water, while the Tanqueray TEN & Tonic is an iconic staple that combines Fevertree Mediterranean Tonic Water with a grapefruit wedge for a bitter twist.
Tanqueray No. TEN’s unique citrus heart is rendered through the distilling process with whole fruit such as Florida oranges, Mexican limes and pink grapefruits instead of just the peels. This rare practise contributes to its fresh, zesty and smooth flavour – serving as the ‘heart’ of the entire spirit. This unmistakable profile makes for the most refreshing of gin & tonics and grapefruit fizzes.
Guest will have a chance to shake up their own cocktail slings with the guidance of expert bartenders, take instaworthy images against a floral, neon-lit backdrop, while enjoying music from the nearby live entertainment. Stay on for the party after dark inside 6 Grey Bar & Gin for live DJ sets and an all-night happy hour from 10 pm.
