The FNB Whisky Live Festival, which runs from 2 – 4 November 2011 in
Cape Town, and 9 -11 November 2011 in Johannesburg, is set to take
both whisky connoisseurs and new to whisky drinkers on an
unforgettable journey through the allure, origins, flavours and
history of whisky.
Building on its reputation as the largest, liveliest and most
entertaining whisky lifestyle show of its kind, the ninth annual
festival will showcase more than 180 local and international
whiskies, a choice of whisky liqueurs, a range of luxury lifestyle products and
a host of whiskies new to South Africa.
Says Karen Chaloner, co-founder of the festival: “Long gone are the
days of whisky being the preserve of a select few. Today, whisky,
that gorgeous golden dram known as ‘the water of life’, is one of the
fastest growing spirit categories in South Africa.”
Last year, the Johannesburg leg of the FNB Whisky Live Festival sold
out. Little wonder when the likes of award-winning whisky writer Dave
Broom dubbed the South African FNB Whisky Live Festival as “the
benchmark for spirit shows globally, the innovator” and a show that
“continuously smashes all barriers to entry into the whisky world,
making whisky exciting, fun, youthful and sexy”.
According to festival co-founder, Sian Neubert, you do not want to
miss out on this year’s show.
“Tickets will sell out quickly, so diarise mid September to pre-book
online and ensure you secure a ticket,” she says.
Whether you’re a novice to the world of whisky, or a long time whisky
connoisseur with the most discerning of palates, the organisers
promise that the 2011 festival will offer something for everyone.
“The FNB Whisky Live Festival has always been about sharing the
passion and unravelling the mystery around whisky. But even more so,
it’s about like-minded friends, associates and whisky lovers gathered
under one roof, tasting whisky and experiencing the premium lifestyle
that whisky drinkers enjoy.”
