Voting Now Open for Your Favourite Whisky Bars

Postby AmandaWhaymand » Fri Aug 24, 2012 2:16 pm

What makes a great bar? There are only a few questions in life that prompt so much debate and frankly this is one of them. Whether it is in a hotel, restaurant or a traditional bar, what gives it that buzz, ambience and pulling power? Four years ago Whisky Magazine launched its quest to honour the greatest bars in the world. The original scheme evolved into our awards programme for bars, hotels and restaurants.

These awards honour the very best venues in the world, and developed out of the Great Whisky Bars of the World series. This comprises an accreditation system to recognise excellence in whisky. With three levels, Gold, Silver and Bronze, we recognise any establishment, no matter how big or small, that celebrates whisky. Any premises that applied were accredited under the programme and received their certificate dependent on their range and quality of whisky.

Now you have a chance to influence the results, so head over to http://www.whiskymag.com/awards/whisky_bars/vote/ and vote for your favourite whisky bar.

Online voting closes 6th September 2012

Oh, I see, so the new "Great" whisky bars of the world 2012 app, Sponsord by Jura and Dalmore was based on Whisky Magazine members voting. That explains how an absolute dive such as the Hunting Lodge Hotel :insane: on the road to Springbank, which was closed down the last time I drove past it in May 2012, got in. Or maybe you simply carry-forward the same old rubbish bars year after year because you can't be bothered to produce a proper list.

The fact that the Highlander Whisky Inn, Craigellachie, Speyside, one of the late great Michael Jackson's :angel: favourite whisky bars, with 500+ single malts, doesn't get a mention makes your list of
great
whisky bars about as worthwhile as a
Best of the 60's music album
; excluding the Beatles. :thumbsup:

Instead of asking the real experts: the whisky writers, journalists and the people who actually write for Whisky Magazine to collate their knowledge of the great whisky bars around the world, you've proclaimed the great whisky bars to be anywhere that at least one of your members have been to. :shock: And that's why the new app called "great whisky bars 2012" I was sent is absolutely rubbish. :yuk:

I wonder if Whisky Magazine relies on the same general contribution from its members in order to produce their monthly publication? Let's take anyone's unqualified opinion and call it "great." :headbang:

We can assure you that the Highlander Inn, Craigellachie is listed and has received a gold medal for the past three years in a row.
