Whisky & Food Pairing Series (By booking only)

$58.00 Β· 5 Reviews

Gorgeous whiskies paired with equally great chocolates from @demochoco at @thebelljar_sg.

Starting off with the brash and spicy Miyagikyo Single Malt coupled with buttery Dulcey chocolate, we worked our way down the line from strength to strength. The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 year old/Sitio Tanque coffee chocolate truffle as well as Glenfiddich 15 year single malt/Apple Brandy chocolate pairings intrigued our palates, but what truly impressed was the unexpected duet awof smoky Laphroaig 21 year old and milky matcha truffle.

For the curious, whisky/food pairing dates are usually released on the month itself, but they are always open to private booking requests.

Much appreciation to @burpple for the invite!

Taste: 4.5/5

The chocolates from Demochoco go so well with the whiskeys! Worth experiencing!


I thought I knew how to appreciate whisky (read: get wasted on it) until last nights whisky appreciation session at the Belljar. Unlike many other whisky appreciation sessions out there, The Belljar lets you try different labels instead of turning it into a product push.

Case in point, we had (from left to right) a very young, 7 year single malt Miyagikyo that was ridiculously spicy and burned like a Sumatran forest fire, a much more mellow and pleasant Balvenie 12 year Doublewood, a sensually smooth Glenfiddich 15 year, and a severely smoky Laphroaig 18 year.

More interestingly, the whiskies were perfectly paired up with chocolates from Demochoco. For example, the beige colored square of caramel chocolate on the left went hand in hand with the wild Miyagikyo, helping to smoothen out the edge of the Japanese whiskey.

The Belljar is one of the few (if not the only) place in Singapore where they're dead serious about their whisky, and they specialize in pairing food with whiskies. That's right, the food revolves around the whisky, not the other way around at the Belljar.

Many thanks to Andrew and Kahying for hosting us and educating us on whisky, and to Burpple for the invite!


It used to smell & taste all the same to me till today πŸ˜±πŸ™Š Now a new appreciation to these aged classics & learning how to pair them with amazing handmade chocolates from @demochoco!
Thank you Andrew & Kahying, from The Belljar for sharing your insights & teaching us & @Burpple for inviting us!


Super chill and somewhat hidden bar along North Canal Rd. Grab your friends and lead them down the back alley, then up the stairs into hidden comfort. Come to think of it, this makes a really good hideout to meet up with people. πŸ€” Maybe I shouldn't be telling everyone about this place.
Plus they have their own chocolatier making Matcha, Kaffir & Earl Grey flavoured chocolates. πŸ˜‹ Can't wait for the next phase of this place.
