Crafted By – The Greatest Singapore Sling | S2E5

We visit the Raffles Hotel Singapore and learn about their two-years restoration and the refreshed recipe for the Singapore Sling, their iconic gin-based cocktail that still draws in the big crowds a century on from its creation by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon in 1915. 

We talk with local microdistillery Compendium about their amazing gins, Rojak Gin and Chendol Gin, which capture the flavours of Singapore in a bottle.

And we discuss artistry with one of Singapore’s most beloved entertainers, Hossan Leong and our theory of who is one of Singapore’s great unheralded artists!
