There’s Joshua Kalinan, Master Sake Sommelier and the first Singaporean to take home the Sake Sommelier of the Year title, a prestigious label given by the UK-based Sake Sommelier Association. For the holiday season, Kalinan recommends the Hatsumago Shozui Junmai Daiginjo from the Yamagata-based Tohoku Meijo brewery. Made from Yamadanishiki rice, the aromatic-style sake is well balanced with a mellow flavour. 

Meanwhile, Fazil recommends Terra do Zambujeiro’s Tinto 2016, a bold red blend made from vineyards “located in the South of Portugal famous golf course region Alentejo that reflects the true terrior of the hot conditions”.

It’s not just wine and sake too – because Urbanfindr amalgamates products from other distributors, they also carry a wide range of craft spirits ranging from the refreshing, aromatic gin from nomadic distillery Amass; as well as the highly-acclaimed coffee liqueurs from Mr Black. 

Urbanfindr is not just a bottle shop too – they operate as a food delivery platform that coordinates orders for restaurants, which allows the restaurants to, according to the platform, save on the extra costs associated with the larger delivery platforms.
