Traditional department stores often assign different floors to each focus on a specific category, and while it’s efficient for goal-oriental shoppers to quickly find what they’re after, it tends to neglect those of us who see shopping as a pursuit for pleasure and leisure. With that in mind, luxury travel retailer DFS Group has recently launched a brand new lifestyle shopping experience, bringing together fashion, accessories, watches and spirits all under one roof.
Titled “Timepieces & Whiskies,” the special experience is exclusive to shoppers at T Galleria by DFS within the City of Dreams in Macau, and is located on the fashion floor for men. There, you can discover a curated collection of antique memorabilia as well as iconic whiskies and watches, displayed inside a lofted library-style lounge inspired by the global jet-setting collector.
Guests arriving at this gentlemen’s lounge will have the opportunity to relax and indulge while trying on a classic watch by the fireplace and sampling a cult-favourite single malt whisky at the bar. From Macallan to Glenmorangie to Highland Park, there are approximately 30 whiskey brands available across different flavour profiles, with daily guided tastings available to refine your palate.
For watch enthusiasts, you can casually browse through the selection of men’s watches, ranging from iconic brands such as IWC Schaffhausen and Zenith, to niche brands such as NOMOS Glashütte and Romain Jerome. These timepieces have all been hand-picked by DFS’ watch team, including some of their favourite picks from the season.
Many of the collections on offer at “Timepieces & Whiskies” are exclusive or limited edition products that are only available at DFS in Macau, including the Araid Rare Cask Reserve and a travel retail edition of the Glenmorangie Legends Collection. What’s more? DFS is also set to launch whisky-focused tasting events and seminars throughout the year, where leading brand ambassadors will be invited to bring the best of whisky to the heart of Macau.
