2 more events for you to know about, if you’re enthusiasts of whisky and live in the London area:
Albannach Women-only Whisky Tasting (29 March)
Albannach is a great whisky bar on Trafalgar Square, and on the 29th of March they’re running a whisky tasting expressly aimed at women. Guest speaker for the event will be Penderyn distillery’s very own Gillian McDonald. Further info and ticket booking contact can be found on the PDF on the Albannach site.
The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show (7 & 8 October)
We’ve previously rhapsodised about how amazing the 2010 Whisky Show was, and the 2011 show is shaping up to be every bit as good! We’d previously talked about the show being in late October, however an organisational reshuffle sees it moving to Friday 7th and Saturday 8th. The venue this year will be Vinopolis, the wine & spirit museum complex near Borough Markets. Tickets are available for Friday, Saturday, or if you’re feeling saucy, both – booking and other info on their website. It’s £95 per day, however as an event geared towards enthusiasts it represents excellent value for money, and a chance to try many rare and exciting whiskies.
