The Merlion Statue is a symbol of the city-state of Singapore. Designed in 1964 by British zoologist Alec Fraser-Brunner, this iconic logo depicts a mythical creature with the head of a lion and a body of a fish riding above the waves.
The lion is a reference to Sang Nila Utama, a Srivijayan prince who named the island Singapura, which means "Lion City" in Sanskrit, after spotting the animal. The body of the Merlion alludes to the country's humble beginnings as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, that originates from the root word “tasek”, meaning ‘lake’ in Malay.
Using the finest malted barley sourced locally in the sub-tropical region, this Single Malt is carefully distilled and matured in American oak casks which impart many layers of flavour, delivering an aromatic floral note with hints of honey on the nose and oak spice on the palate that lingers with a mellow and sweet finish. Distilled, aged and bottled in Taiwan to ensure the highest quality of standards of safety and cleanliness.
Recommend to drink neat, or relish with a dash of water or ice whichever pleases your palate.
