After the successes of our Newcastle, Manchester and York events last year, we have been casting the net for further venues and have found Brighton to have massive potential.
We have further festivals (6 in total) this year and are confident that these will keep even the most ardent whisky fan happy!
Brighton was announced to our exhibitor friends fairly late in the day, so there are perhaps not quite the same number as there will be at the 'bigger' festivals, later in the year. However, there are still a good number of high quality distillers and distributors and I have been very pleased with the response.

Enjoy, Eddies events are always excellent. I would have gone myself if it was not so far away!
I had loads of fun and plenty of tastings:
Masterclass with Diageo and a very amusing Colin Dunn.
Talisker, Caol Ila, Lagavulin (2 expressions of each.)
Gordon & McPhail Mortlach 15y.o
Strathisla 30 y.o.
I also tried a grain whisky from "Compass Box"
I had plenty of water and rest!!!!
Phew! and by a miracle didn't feel too bad at all.
Spoke to many new friends and enjoyed the company.
I bought a few bottles from Eddie (which I suppose is what it is all about.)
So looking forward to the next event.
Thanks Whisky lounge for a very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon out.
Thumbs up from me.
