Jamie Koh, Founder
At the forefront of two notable Singaporean F&B concepts, Jamie has embarked on a new venture to establish Singapore’s first full-fledged micro-distillery. With over ten years of experience in the F&B industry, predominantly in the spirits world, Jamie’s intimate understanding of the Singaporean palate and cocktail preferences has led her to distil a proudly Singaporean gin.
Using her knowledge, Jamie breathes life into Brass Lion Distillery and in doing so, stakes her claim in the little red dot’s innovative drinking landscape. Jamie jumpstarted her independent business career after the success of her first business venture, Chupitos Shots Bar, in 2010. She went on to launch The Beast Southern Kitchen and Bourbon Bar in 2013, and both establishments are now staples in Singapore’s nightlife and bar scene. Her experience and success over the past ten years have not just enabled Jamie to be at the forefront of trends in the Singapore market, but also cultivate insights into what people want.
With Brass Lion Distillery, Jamie’s aims are two-fold: to educate both international and local audiences on the art of creating handcrafted spirits, and to diversify the Singaporean market with locally-made spirits. Ultimately, she hopes to elevate the city’s local drinking culture, and in doing so, further affirm Singapore’s thriving bar scene on the global map and build a global spirits brand.
