Grand hotel bar, home to the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse

With stories richly intertwined in drinks crafted from astute bartending and artisanal spirits, these 18 new cocktails and six zero proof beverages truly leap from the pages of history.

American Whiskey Embassy

The collection now features over 220 bottles of whiskies, including a range of rare and collectible ones. All of which is housed in a Whiskey Glasshouse, an elegant space within the Ingredients Room that displays bottles of the exquisite golden-caramel liquid; an arresting showstopper wall of only the finest, that are as visually enticing as they taste.

Approachable, oaky and generally laced with hints of vanilla sweetness, American whiskies can go from soft and smooth flavours, to complex and robust. In the glamorous yet modern space reminiscent of old New York, experience all facets of this exciting journey from grain to glass at Manhattan.

Meet Our Bartender

Rusty Cerven, Bar Manager

Hailing from Slovakia, Rusty’s passion began more than 15 years ago when he started working with one of the most respected bartenders and world ambassador of the Aloha philosophy, Stanislav Vadrna. He received his first opportunity as a Bar Manager to tend Paparazzi Bar in Bratislava. In April 2010, Rusty made his foray into the London bar scene when he was invited to join HIX bar and later the renowned Connaught Bar in Mayfair, named World’s Best Bar in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2020. Working alongside top mixologist Ago Perrone, Rusty saw the bar through several notable awards at the Tales of the Cocktail competition, such as Best Hotel Bar 2010 and Best Cocktail Bar 2012.

Two milestone achievements for Rusty happened when he won Bols Around The World Champion in 2013, and also as a pioneering member for The Gibson in London which was shortly ranked #6 in The World’s 50 Best Bars 2016. During the span of his career, Rusty was also heavily involved in consultancy and development work in US and Mexico, from understanding the production and distillation of spirits to searching for new flavours and ingredients. He also developed a bar program for restaurant La Moderna.

Upon arrival to Singapore, Rusty worked on the opening for the 1880 Member’s Club in Robertson Quay before joining Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford, where he assisted in the opening of SKAI Bar and led the Beverage Program for both hotels and various properties across Accor-managed properties in SEA.
