Johnnie Walker House debuts in Singapore

DFS Group has teamed up with Diageo Global Travel to launch the Johnnie Walker House retail showcase, located within DFS Group’s new Wines & Spirits flagship store. It is first ever Johnnie Walker House in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Designed and built by Singapore-based design agency Asylum, the store aims to bring to life the history of Johnnie Walker. The store provides “theatrical mentoring” sessions, which are immersions in the Johnnie Walker brand and product universe, through a combination of education and entertainment, and storytelling and trial, led by brand ambassadors. There will also be privileges extended to members of the Johnnie Walker house –World of Privileges loyalty programme.

"With the strategic location of Singapore Changi Airport as a travel hub, Johnnie Walker House Singapore is set to be a game-changer for the luxury spirits segment,” Doug Bagley, managing director, Diageo Global Travel and Middle East, said.

“We combine our revolutionary hospitality concept with our successful travel retail model – providing an enticing experience to modern luxury consumers during the “the golden hour” before they board,” he added.
