A new event by Whiskey Affair is making a debut in London in November 2015. A lively and fun night out for any fans of whisky who may discover new brands, drinks and favourites along the way. Split into four sections: scotch, bourbon, whisky and whisky cocktails, there is something for all levels of knowledge catering for beginners right through to the aficionado.
This new festival makes its debut in London before going nationwide in the UK in 2016. Originating from a simple idea: to explore the world of whisky comprehensively, whilst having fun and ensuring inclusivity for any level of knowledge in the attendee.
Music, speakers and representatives from the brands are all comprising factors of the events and even people with no interest in whisky can sample the cocktail menu and still enjoy the night!
Organiser Catherine Jackson is keen to develop a burgeoning whisky interest and share her enthusiasm with as many people as possible:
“I had so many friends who were knowledgeable about different whiskys and I was often lost as to where to start. I wanted to dip my toe into the differences and similarities within the brands and learn how to judge which finishes and ages suited my tastes more but I wanted to do so with friends and have a good night out at the same time. There are some wonderful, smaller independent distillers involved next to household names so there is a true mix of brands to sample. A rockabilly band is providing our entertainment for the evening and a photo booth will provide a permanent memory of the night. It’s going to be great fun and we can’t wait to share it!”
