The Vault Biennale, a highly curated Luxury beverages festival launches its first edition in Mumbai on February 16th & 17th, 2019, with the central theme - `SPIRITED STORIES’. 


Every handcrafted beverage has a story waiting to be shared – of its history, emotion and culture; of the founder and the distiller; of the terroir; the wood in which it rested; the generations of people who safeguard it; the mixologists who create magic with it; and finally the story of its challenges and successes.


The Vault Biennale Team invites you to come and engage your senses in the four highly curated experiences – Handcrafted & Handpicked.


EXPERIENCE – over 40 handcrafted beverages from across the world.

DISCOVER – over 15 new expressions for the first time in India.

LISTEN – to curated storytellers from the world of fine spirits. 

INDULGE – With mixologists from the `World’s 50 Best Bars’ who are in India for the first time crafting their signature cocktails; or attend a masterclass with a world-renowned aroma expert who helps `map smells’, breaking down the molecular structure of fine beverages.
