Whisky Live gives you the unique opportunity to sample the great whiskies, whilst mingling with the producers, independent bottlers and brand ambassadors all under one roof. In addition to learning about the world of whisky, visitors have the opportunity to sample rare and sought after whiskies and meet the stars of the industry.
The Whisky Live Masterclasses are a unique insight into the world of whisky and are tutored by master distillers and other leading whisky experts. Tickets will go on sale from August 1st from http://www.whiskylive.com priced at £13 per session.
Is there really so little interest in this or are people just undecided so far?
Can I ask Pippa, what exactly will we get if we purchase a VIP ticket? So often, in many types of shows they advertise VIP tickets/rooms at an extra cost for them only to be found extremely disappointing.
I've also been invited to a couple of distillery tours that day, so I'm weighing up my options.
Will I go? Probably 70/30 in favour, cause I'm a sucker for "Whisky Live", although I know of many people who will not be attending this year.
We'll travel up on Friday and make a weekend of it as we live in West Yorkshire.
We've gone for the VIP tickets - I hope they are worth the extra.
I was at the Fringe on Saturday, another excellent event. Hopefully WL Glasgow will compete this year after a bit of a dodgy one in 2009.
Will there be anything in the local paper about the event?
