Celebrate the arrival of the Wood Dragon by enjoying (or gifting) a bottle of this season's most auspicious whiskies.

Go for gold

Modern families may not have the most amount of time to spend together, so all the more reason to splash out when the stars align and the magical reunion happens. For something as distinguished as it is delicious, crack open a bottle of Aberfeldy 21 Year Old. The age of the whisky alone will delight the entire table, as will its notes of heather, honey, toasted coconut and creamy macadamia nuts subtly accented by oak and smoke. Pick it up from the Jaya Grocer outlet near you or buy online from popular e-commerce platforms like Lazada and Shopee.

Spring festival

Who wouldn’t appreciate a wee dram of Glenfiddich? And to elevate the art of Chinese New Year gifting further, Glenfiddich has collaborated with internationally acclaimed artist Raku Inoue to create a limited-edition collection called A Gift For Blossoming Futures. Japanese-born but Canada-based Raku-san is renowned for his ability to capture the ephemeral beauty of organic materials, namely flowers and leaves, to stunning effect. Choose from gift sets that span the entire Glenfiddich variants, including the 12, 15, 18 and 21 Year Old.


Brown spirited beauty

Ladies would be thrilled with The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow, which marks a unique collaboration between the luxurious Scotch label and the creative McCartney sisters, fashion designer Stella and photographer Mary. The drink itself is a dream, with aromatics that bring rich orange, lemon, vanilla and coconut to mind while, on the palate, it is a sweet, long and complex swirl of melon, oak and even green tea. To signify a profound collection with the pristine Scottish countryside, all presentation boxes and labels are made using discarded meadow cuttings.
