For a meal that merits the extra attention and intimate space, The Macallan’s Private Dining Experience is what you need

Thanks to social distancing, space has become an even-more prized commodity, here in Singapore. That rings true especially for those who just want a good night out with friends and family, without the risk of boorish diners at the next table and well, the coronavirus. For a meal that merits the extra attention and intimate space, The Macallan’s Private Dining Experience is what you need.

Designed exclusively for The Macallan Experience, an immersive and experiential space at Raffles Hotel Singapore (happening until 10 February 2021), the Private Dining Experience will make for a memorable, intimate feast. It is kitted out with lavish decor, custom made cutlery and bubble lamps, and it also adjoins a waiting room, where guests may gear up their appetites with pre-dinner drinks.

In celebration the brand’s longstanding partnership with Raffles Hotel Singapore, various pairing menus by the hotel’s crown jewels (La Dame de Pic, 藝 yì and Butcher’s Block) have been rolled out. Each month will showcase a different prix fixe menu created by Pierre Burgade, the executive chef of Raffles Hotel Singapore, and the respective restaurant’s team of chefs de cuisine.

November, for instance, will offer a menu featuring 藝 yì’s Roasted Coffee Pork Ribs and Goose Liver, paired with either The Macallan’s Double Cask range and Edition No. 6 or the Exceptional Single Cask selection. December will bring Butcher’s Block to you, followed by La Dame de Pic in January. The brainchild of three-Michelin-starred chef Anne-Sophie Pic, guests can look forward to her signature Berlingots, cheese-stuffed pasta (shaped after her favourite candy) in a delicious pool of beetroot, pu’er and herbs of grace; creamy Sea Urchin with apple jelly and tamarillo; and charcoal-grilled Saga Wagyu Beef that goes exceptionally well with the Double Cask 18 Year Old.

Everything is good as it is and we recommend sticking to what’s decided. But if there’s the case of allergies and “dietary preferences”, one can of course request to adjust the menu accordingly. And if you foresee the group feeling extra thirsty at dinner, feel free to ask to BYOB. You’d be fine, just as long as it’s a bottle of The Macallan.

The Macallan Private Dining Experience will end in February with a special 藝 yì Lunar New Year reunion dinner. Make your booking at least 10 days ahead.
