Bit of news from The Whisky Exchange today.
Firstly, the Ardbeg Embassy at The Whisky Exchange Vinopolis will be celebrating Ardbeg Day on June 2nd 2012. This is to tie in with the festivities at the Ardbeg Distillery as part of the Islay Festival of Music and Malt.
As part of the celebrations they’ll have a giant bottle of the distillery’s celebratory Feis Ile whisky, appropriately named ‘Ardbeg Day’.
Ardbeg Committee members can take advantage of a few drams who come to visit on the day, as well as to any friends they might be able to tempt along to sign up.
A big plus is that TWE will also be receiving a small number of normal sized bottles of the Ardbeg Day whisky to sell to Committee members.
These will ONLY be available through Ardbeg Embassies, so they are not expected to last long!
Bear in mind that:
* It’s one bottle per person.
* No preordering.
* First come, first served.
* The shop will be open from 10:30am and Vinopolis from 8:30am.
* If you want to queue then please do so by the Bar Blue entrance to Vinopolis on the corner of Clink Street and Bank End until Vinopolis opens, and then by the entrance to TWE inside Vinopolis.
* If you queue make sure you’re in the right place – if you’re not then you probably won’t get a bottle!
The second bit of news is that The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show 2012 tickets are now on sale!
The prestigous food and whisky tasting experience is again taking place at Vinopolis, London’s premium wine and spirit destination, the Show will run across the weekend of 6th-7th October 2012 from 12pm-6pm.
The show last year was a sell-out and this year promises to sell-out quickly as well. Like the 1,000+ guests that attended last year. Visitors will once again have the opportunity to taste some of the world’s finest whiskies including rare single malts and once-in-a- lifetime Dream Drams – exclusive whiskies that can cost several thousand pounds a bottle.
As part of this year’s ‘Meet the Maker’ theme, visitors will also be able to enjoy informal Q&A sessions and mini masterclasses with the experts.
A two course whisky-inspired meal in the Show Brasserie is also included, as well as ideas for matching whisky with quality foods. Whisky and food writer Martine Nouet will be on hand to offer a series of food and whisky pairing masterclasses during the Show.
The Shows Director Sukhinder Singh said:
“The Show is now in its fourth year and it continues to grow each year as people seek out opportunities to try the finest whiskies available and explore ideas for pairing with a range of delicious foods. It really is the pinnacle in the field of consumer whisky tasting events, with each successive year introducing innovative ideas which set it in a class apart from other whisky shows.”
