Bespoke Whisky Bar

Full The Auld Alliance review here:

After vacating their previous premises at Chijmes, bespoke whisky bar The Auld Alliance has found a new home in Rendezvous Gallery, next to Rendezvous Hotel. Established in 2011 by Mr. Emmanuel Dron, The Auld Alliance is named after a period of truce between Scotland and France, and is widely considered to be Singapore's finest whisky bar.

Ambience at The Auld Alliance retains its classical library style, with huge plush leather couches, dim lighting, and rows upon rows of bookshelves, lined with The Auld Alliance extensive range of over 1,400 labels of whisky. The spacious layout can accomodate over 60 people, including a private 14-seater room for those seeking even greater privacy than what The Auld Alliance hidden location currently offers.

Service at The Auld Alliance is professional and knowledgable. Besides the owner, staff are trained and well versed in the vast collection of whisky available, from the various labels, to serving, and even curating and storage. Don't let the 70 page book-like menu intimidate you, just ask the staff if you need assistance!

The Auld Alliance doesn't offer any food, beyond simple nuts / snacks. Go for the 1,400 labels of whisky, ranging in price from as low as SGD $14 per glass, to as high as hundreds of dollars per glass for the rare labels. The menu helpfully has some descriptions, on taste of each whisky, and their country of origin. Befittingly, the majority of whisky is from Scotland, though they also carry other whisky labels from many other countries, including Australia, France, Taiwan and India.

Besides the extensive range of whisky, The Auld Alliance also offers an extensive variety of wines, with over 80 labels available. They also offer a decent selection of cocktails and absinthe.

The Absinthe Clandestine Marianne (SGD $23 Per Glass) is a white Swiss absinthe, has a refreshing minty taste with flavours of anise, wild flower, and honey, and a lingering bitterness of wormwood.

The Whisky Glendronach 12 Year Old Sherry Cask (SGD $16 Per Glass) is a Scottish whisky, with a medium body, tastes of nuts and fruit, hints of sherry, and a strong alcohol aroma.
