Whisky-Lovers, whether connoisseurs or occasional sippers of a dram or two, are looking forward to the FNB Whisky Live Festival held at the Sandton Convention Centre.

The Whisky Love Festival is the largest consumer whisky show in the world. Featuring more than 180 top brands, same of them new releases, from Scotland, Ireland, the US, Canada, Wales, Japan, and South Africa. Whisky is progressively becoming the drink of choice for adults in the 40 to 45 year age group, says Sian Neubert, cofounder of NC Connect, the company that organises the South African event.

There is an international trend, with whisky festivals being held in London, Paris, New York, Belgium and Tokyo. South Africa, however, is leading the way, with the Whisky Live Festival being the worlds largest consumer show.

With the industry sending its distillers, master blenders and global brand ambassadors to present the whisky tasting workshops and give consumers a chance to meet the faces behind the brands, the festival promises to be as informative as it is entertaining. Scottish, American and Irish brands remain the most wellknown. but whiskies of the world from as far afield as Japan and Wales are beginning to feature, too.

Festival visitors have whisky tasting workshops from which to choose. Hosted by international master distifiers, global brand ambassadors, and whisky experts, they are a chance to taste whiskies not available in the main tasting hail or possibly South Africa. These lectures will run during the festival and be held in meeting rooms.

Times: 18h00 to 22h00
Venue: Sandton Convention Centre
