On March 31st, The Giant Eyes and I attended the Second Annual Master of Spirits Gala Event at the Grand Hyatt, Singapore. The spirits, wine and champagne event is hosted by DFS Group, and is invitation only to its VIP clients and their guests. Approximately 600 people from Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar, India, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Hawaii, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Panama attended the event. Participating brands included Hennessy, Martell, Chabot, Johnnie Walker, Windsor, Royal Salute, Dalmore, The Macallan, Absolut, Dom Perignon, Krug, Château Mouton Rothschild and many more. The lavish party also provided its guests with a free flow of the best spirits and wines I mentioned, and a hors d’oeuvres menu that consisted of fresh oysters, prosciutto, premium Wagyu beef, mini-burgers, gourmet cheeses… just to name a few.
While the Giant Eyes was enjoying his Dom Perignon and Macallan, I was acting like a little spy, taking pictures, asking lots of questions and taking notes – all for our Eat-Everywhere readers! Here are the pictures and notes I gathered! Enjoy!

By the end of the night, I saw only one person who appeared drunk and needed assistance in leaving the room. I am also certain that it was a great night for DFS and the brand ambassadors of these spirits labels, because many of the exhibiting bottles were sold! For me, I managed to not even have one sip of alcohol, as for the Giant Eyes… I don’t have enough fingers to count…
