I couldn’t believe that they had a bottle of Penfolds signature wine, Grange, at duty free at Changi Airport in Singapore. The bottles were even numbered like original copies of the Beatle’s white album. Now, the bottle would set you back S$550, or more than US$360. A little out of the drinks budget this month. Ahem.

But top traveller tip. They had an impressive selection of Australian and French wines. From Australia, they had Rosemont’s Hill of Gold Shiraz and Penfolks Bin 707 Cab Sav.

The French wines were from premier appellations including Margaux, Pauillac and Pomerol. To put this in perspective, three of Bordeaux’s five premier cru chateaus are in Pauillac: Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Latour, and Château Mouton-Rothschild. They didn’t have any premier cru on offer, but I’m not surprised those are pricey.
