The first edition of Whisky Fest will be held at the Press House, Marble Hall, from 10th – 12th November 2016, being the first event dedicated entirely to one of the most popular drinks of all time – whisky.
Whisky Fest is a premium event which will be held in the elegant space offered by the Marble Hall of the Press House in Bucharest and is addressed to all those who appreciate the qualities of a true whisky, above alcohol, and want to sample both a fine drink and the story behind it. Not for nothing that whisky was a favorite drink for a number of historical figures like Frank Sinatra, Mark Twain, Sir Winston Churchill, William Faulkner or George Bernard Shaw.
The visitors of the festival will learn from the experts in the field how a distillate of grain gets from alcohol to a sensational drink, which is the influence of the wood barrel in defining the taste, why we have to wait decades to enjoy a noble drink or what is the difference between single malt, blend or vatted malt.
The festival will bring in one place more than 100 labels of whiskey, in a variety of flavors and tastes, from the most popular varieties to the rarities of old age, some in absolute premiere in Romania.
During the event, the whisky lovers will delight themselves by tasting the different varieties offered by the dozens of brands that will participate in the festival. The full list of participants will be announced in the shortest time.
Whisky Fest is an event organized by the enthusiasts of this drink, who understand and appreciate the tradition of over 500 years behind the original liqueur in Scotland, initially called aqua vitae in a very suggestive way.
