Its soaring popularity has seen the amber spirit rose from obscurity to being one of the world’s favourite spirit… heck even its name means ‘water of life’. Its distinctive notes of charcoal, smoke, fruit and strong flavour have gained whisky a strong loyal here, with many specialty shops and bars dedicated to the drink mushrooming around the city.
In celebration of our favourite tipple, the good folks at upmarket whisky store-and-bar La Maison Du Whisky are throwing their Whisky Live event for a second year running.
Whisky Live gives you the unique opportunity to sample the greatest whiskies in the world, whilst mingling with the producers and distillers, marketers and brand ambassadors. In addition to learning about the world of whisky, you will be able to sample rare and sought-after whiskies and meet the stars of the industry.
In addition to whiskies from Scotland, Japan, the USA and India, you will also have the chance to sample a range of Caribbean rums, German gins, Polish vodkas, fine eaux de vie and an array of cocktails. Exquisite whisky infused chocolates from Laurent Bernard will also be on offer. There will also be master-classes for those that want to brush up on the finer points of whisky appreciation.
