With restaurants, bars and more boasting of months-long reservations, especially the more popular restaurants – it's truly a sign that things are well and on their way to normalcy. A good indication is the new alcohol launches that are coming fast and furious into Singapore's market.

And it's not just us trying to convince you to buy anything – many of the more coveted collections featured here are already sold out, or going to! Still, for any self-respecting alcohol enthusiast (I kid, I kid), one should be in the know about these new releases.

Let us all raise a toast (or two, maybe three) with these new alcohol releases.

*Please drink responsibly

Heineken Silver

The heat's turning up in Singapore, so it's a great time really to introduce something light and easy to drink in this hot and humid weather. Heineken Silver has just launched in Singapore, crafted as a lower-alcohol, less bitter spin-off of the regular Heineken. The brewing giant's new lager (4% abv) uses an “ice-cold brewing process” to create a significantly less bitter taste than the brand's core lager and a “lighter drinking profile”.

A smoky variation of Plantation's Stiggins' Fancy, which is made with delicious rum, infused with Victoria pineapple, and now given a finishing period in Teeling Blackpitts casks, a peated Irish single malt whiskey offers up an intriguing balance of sweetness and smokiness.

Not exactly a new launch, but I had the chance to go to the distillery in Swan Valley recently to try this gin out and was blown away by the various gin flavour. They're always coming up with new profiles, but can be hard to find outside of Australia.

Luckily, I found a single collection of Giniversity Barrel Aged Gin available on Lazada! We'll take what we can get until we head over to Perth.

Also from the same company, Limeburners' Heavily Peated Darkest Winter whisky, which was produced in Albany, collected the trophy for 2017's best International Whisky in the World at the American Distilling Institute's annual spirits awards in Baltimore. Limeburners whiskies are also available on Amazon and Lazada.

Despite being small craft distilleries in Western Australia, the Limeburners and Giniversity alcohol are certainly brands to look out for!

The Grand series is a celebration of three special single malts from Glenfiddich designed to elevate occasions and celebratory moments.

21 Year Old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish: Mellowed for 21 years in meticulously selected American and European oak casks and finished for six months in Caribbean Rum casks, the liquid builds to a crescendo of sweet toffee and spicy exotic warmth.

23 Year Old Grand Cru: Matured for 23 years in hand-selected oak casks, the exceptional liquid is finished in rare French cuvée casks for six months – the first and only Glenfiddich expression to be finished in such casks.

26 Year Old Grande Couronne Cognac Finish: Already out of stock in many places, the Grande Couronne is the piece de resistance of the Glenfiddich Grand Series. This whisky is aged for 26 years before receiving an extended finish of two years in rare French cognac casks. Unveiling exquisite layers of sweet toasted oak and velvety aromas, this collection has received raving reviews from whisky enthusiasts.

To order the Grand Cru and Grande Couronne, please contact William Grant & Sons representative James Ting at James.Ting@wgrant.com. For more details, log on to www.since1887.sg or follow @GlenfiddichSEA.

Hailing from the same Suntory Osaka plant that produced the popular Roku Gin in 2017, SUI 翆 is Suntory’s most popular gin creation in Japan yet. SUI 翆 is distilled from the combination of eight traditional botanicals – juniper berry, coriander seed, angelica root, cardamom, cinnamon, bitter orange peel and lemon peel – but its signature Japanese flair is showcased with the addition of yuzu, green tea and ginger. Perfect with everyday meals and a good alternative to the highball.

Now, here's a collection that you cannot find in regular retail stores, whether physically or online. The Great Gatsby Collection comprises three single cask selections of Scotch Single Malt and Cognac. Produced by XM Studios in collaboration with Malt Sainte to procure this line-up of small batch spirits, here's a lowdown on the three bottles.

The Great Gatsby Bunnahabhain 1991 Single Cask: Tasting notes of preserved plums, brown sugar, cinnamon and canned fruit is rounded by musk and leather-bound books. Medium to long finish.

The Great Gatsby Glen Grant 1998 Single Cask: Clean and sweet nose of white grapes, green apples and barley sugar. Sherry funk and pine notes like in a Fino sherry. Honey-like finish.

The Great Gatsby Vallein Tercinier Petit Champagne 1994 Single Cask: Full bodied with grape, honey, cinnamon and tinned peach. A bitter-dry, medium-long finish.

With very limited quantities available to rum enthusiasts and collectors, the limited-edition Master Blender Collection by Master Blender Trudiann Branker is limited to 2,760 bottles globally, with only 90 bottles allocated to Singapore. Mount Gay’s latest release follows the process of a single batch of rum distilled twice in a traditional copper pot still, aged fourteen years in ex-Bourbon casks, before finishing its ageing process in an unconventional wood choice, Andean Oak, for eleven months.

The blend can be purchased on Rémy Cointreau’s official store on Amazon (RSP S$240). Alternatively, fans of rum can visit some of Singapore’s top cocktail bars and rum destinations like Sugarhall, Lime House, Low Tide, and The Bar at 15 Stamford for a taste of this limited edition rum.
