Time Out says

Local distillery Compendium Spirits debuts its showroom in a three-storey heritage shophouse along the eclectic Circular Road. The ground floor, fitted with Southeast Asian-inspired decor such as rattan and wooden elements, is where the bar’s at. And that’s where imbibers can look forward to tasting its full range of spirits and seasonal exclusives.

For spirit enthusiasts, tasting flights (from $22) are the perfect vehicle for understanding the evolution of ingredients, as well as fermentation and ageing outcomes. Not looking to geek out? Anthology also showcases the spirits in the form of locally-inspired cocktails.

The well-crafted tipples all carry a classic backbone as brand and beverage director Dannon Har hopes to allow the base spirit to shine through. Try the nostalgic Teh-groni ($21), an earl grey spiked negroni with a spray of lavender citrus, or the Rojaktini ($24), a punchy mix of rojak gin with notes of pink peppercorn, orange and torched ginger flower. For coffee lovers, don’t sleep on the refreshing Kopi Tonic ($21), which combines kopi-o liqueur, tequila, lemon and tonic.

Things get exclusive on the second and third floors with the private lounge, reserved only for members of Compendium’s Chartered program, who can then request to draw their own spirits straight from their barrel in the temperature and humidity-controlled cellar on level three. This makes Anthology the only place in central Singapore where guests can customise & barrel-age their spirit of choice from scratch. Doors open on August 10.
