Whisky Live Festival

Sazerac Rye Whiskey

Mandy from brainwavez.org invited me along to the opening of the 3-day Whisky Live Festival at the CTICC on Wednesday evening.

Although there were plenty of people at the festival it wasn't uncomfortably crowded. There were plenty of whiskeys (and whiskies) to taste, and even a few other bits and pieces like lovely dark chocolate and Lynchburg Lemonade (at the Jack Daniel's stand).

Mandy and I sat in on a whisky appreciation class with a master distiller from Glenmorangie, took the tour through the Jack Daniel's truck, drank plenty of whiskey, and sat down for a breather in the FNB VIP lounge (where we ordered virgin cocktails from Liquidchefs, just to help clear the mind a little). :)

If you missed the festival you could still catch it in Johannesburg from 11 to 14 November, and since Cape Town's weather is so grey and rainy, perhaps it wouldn't be such a bad idea to skip our lovely part of the world next week in favour of the warmer weather in Jozi.

And Mandy took a notebook and pen along, so visit brainwavez.org for the full details about our evening at the festival.

    Ha! That’s my tasting glass in the photo. The festival was amazing. I just wish it could have been longer. Thanks for tagging along with me.

    What amazing photos you always post! And the nice little stories that come with it.
    Just wanted to hint that the link to Mandy’s post is not working.
    Apart from that, keep up the great work!

    It’s a pleasure mjw, thanks for the invite!

    Mandy, thanks so much for the compliment and letting me know about the link. I think perhaps there was a problem when you tried last time. It looks like the link is working now.
