Experience the craft of whisky making at The Maker’s Table pop-up by Balvenie

Balvenie The Makers Table

One of Scotland’s most recognisable whisky brands, Balvenie, is celebrating the crafts people and the craftsmanship behind the making of its whiskies with an experiential pop-up named The Maker’s Table.

Taking place from Jul 27-Aug 5 at the Mandala Club, the event is also an ode to Balvenie malt master David Stewart’s 60-year tenure at the distillery, who is himself the leading expert of his craft.

The pop-up is an immersive, multisensory one, where attendees are taken on a journey to discover the five crafts – ranging from coopering to malting and more – that are essential to the creation of Balvenie whisky. 

This takes place across five stations spread out across the ground floor of Mandala Club. At each station, find visual representations of the craft and the makers it represents, with some offering interactive elements too.

Several stations also offer tastings of Balvenie expressions (such as The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year Old, among others), as well as refined canapes meant to pair with the drams, done in collaboration with chef-owner Jeremy Gillion of Michelin-starred Restaurant JAG.

“Artistry and mastery has always been the heart of The Balvenie and what David has brought to the table in six decades as malt master has changed the way we drink and think about whisky,” says Brett Bayly, regional brand ambassador for The Balvenie in Southeast Asia. 

“He’s opened doors to immense possibilities and showed us what whisky can be. He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from him during his tenure as malt master.”

Tickets to The Maker’s Table are priced at S$78, inclusive of a welcome highball, four canapes, and three drams. For more details and ticket purchases, head to their website.
