President and Mrs Mary Tan launched the Istana Harvest Sorbet during the National Day Istana Open House on 30 July 2017. The Istana Harvest is a signature drink created using ingredients found in the Istana’s Spice Garden and is currently served exclusively to foreign dignitaries and guests of the Istana. President and Mrs Tan wanted to share this unique flavour with more Singaporeans and explored the idea of creating a sorbet based on the Istana Harvest drink, as a refreshing treat for visitors to the Istana Open House events.
The sorbet will be available for sale at the Istana Open House events. All proceeds from the sale will go to the President’s Challenge.
