If you work around the Milennia Walk and Promenade area, you would have already known about the amazing gin happy hour that the Conrad Centennial Singapore runs every evening. This luxurious property has gone one step ahead to reveal The Gin Experience which allows guests to create their customised Gin & Tonic from just S$12++ a glass during happy hour - there are 12 premium gins, 7 tonics, 8 bitters and over 30 garnishes for you to choose from to create your very own G&T.
In the interest of full disclosure, I was invited down to check out the brand new Gin Experience by the Conrad Centennial Singapore and I took most of the photos under heavy alcohol influence - please do bear with me if the photos do not look spectacular. With so many gins, bitters, tonics and garnishes to choose from, it is pretty easy to get overwhelmed but thankfully there is a simple four step process to creating your very own G&T - there are also recommended ones if you just want to let the experts do their jobs.
Let us start with the basics - the one thing that makes and break the drink:
- Beefeater 24, England
- Plymouth Original, England
- Hendrick’s, Scotland
- Brooklyn Gin, USA
- Citadelle Original, France
- Death’s Door, USA
- G’Vine Nouaison, France
- Ford’s Dry Gin, England
- Hayman’s Old Tom, England
- Sipsmith London Dry, England
- St. George Terroir. USA
- Sipsmith Sloe Gin, England
Seriously, from the list of gin above, you should already be convinced to check out the brand new Gin Experience here at the Conrad Centennial Singapore. At just S$12++ during happy hour, having some of these premium gins (sorry Beefeater but I'm not talking about it) is just a huge deal.
Remember while The Gin Experience is designed for you to have fun and create the perfect G&T, you should not be discouraged from trying some of the beautiful concoctions there - play safe if you are not familiar with the ingredients at the start but definitely get creative over time! The Gin Experience is available daily from October 28, 2016 at S$22++ per glass, or at S$12++ per glass during happy hour, GIN-O’clock from 5pm to 7pm. Go social and get Gin-spired. Share a photo of your gin concoction on your social feed with hashtags #GetGinspired #ConradSingapore, and enjoy an extended GIN-O'clock to 9pm, valid till November 27, 2016.
This was an invited Media Tasting session, though all views expressed are my own.
