Singapore may not be the first place that pops to mind when you think whiskey, but the moneyed island city-state showcased in Crazy Rich Asians has no shortage of residents who can spend big on a dram. At Augustman, Lester Tan gives us the lowdown on The Whiskey Wander, a weekly tour of three well-stocked local bars.

You can thank the Academy

This three-hour jaunt, offered by Academy of Drinks, happens every Wednesday night and is limited to just 11 guests. It kicks off at 6:30—maybe not early enough for the average hard-working Singaporean to join the fun. 

The Whiskey Wander features different bars each week, so you might find yourself at La Maison du Whisky, or perhaps the The Single Cask. It also includes appearances by master distillers and brand ambassadors, Tan explains. A recent edition guest-starred Christian Krogstad, founder of Portland’s Westward Whiskey. 

Plus, there’s car service from joint to joint. Be sure to jump in: assuming you’re cool with driving on the left side of the road, Singapore doesn’t look kindly on DUI.
