Another masterclass online...

MC4 - Time, Master of Perfection
Saturday 27th February - 1.00pm
Join Ian Logan, International Brand Ambassador at Chivas Brothers in this opportunity to taste some hand selected cask samples of four key malts. 35yo. Scapa, 33yo. Longmorn, 31yo. Glenlivet, 25yo. Aberlour. Look back to when these exceptional malts were created, discuss the distilleries and what makes them special. The good things come to those that wait.

I would email pippa@whiskylive.com with any questions you have.

There have been a few exclusive / special bottlings in the past.

Last year there was the Compass Box Optimism (bottled on site), and the year before there was the memorable Glenlivet Eclipse.

I have a vague recollection of Suntory doing something exclusive with their Yamazki before, but sadly the memories fade in the malts of time.

However this is of course the first year that they've had a 10th anniversary to pull the stops out for.

Exhibitors...

Postby RufusA » Sun Jan 31, 2010 4:50 pm

Hi Pippa,

How definitive is the list of exhibitors now?

It's good to see Glenfiddich (I hope they remember to pack the Balvenie) and Edrington returning.

And In Spirit Brands (que?) could this be Buffalo Trace making a suprise return visit incognito?

Can we safely assume that the following are no-shows:
Glenmorangie / Ardbeg?
Diageo and their enormous portfollio including classic malts et al.
Whyte & Mackay (Jura and Dalmore)
Douglas Laing (OMC brothers complete with full mostaches and sometimes kilts).

Or are you still using a little WL charm and persuasion to try and spring a few suprises on to the list?

Rufus (tickets booked and counting the days off).

We are still adding to the list and I can confirm Whyte and Mackay will be attending along with Morrison Bowmore with Suntory and Glen Garioch and also Berry Bros & Rudd retail and Glenrothes.

We are anticipating adding some more confirmed attendees in the coming few days!!

More masterclasses....

Hi all

I know you've been waiting to hear if there are going to be any more masterclasses at Whisky Live London this year and I can confirm that Diageo are holding two. I am also waiting for two other companies to confirm that they are also holding classes. Once I have the information I will post them on the ticket booking website.

With the recent house fire, and with us moving out at the weekend, there may be too much to get ready for the move...



Nick sorry to hear about your problems at home, I hope that you can get that sorted as soon as possible. If you can make it pm me and I'll give you my mobile number, it would be great to meet up if you can make it.

Literally just over 24 hours to go before it all kicks off in London. Can't wait. A big thank you to Pippa and the team for the tickets. I haven't won anything in a competition for about 20 years so I am simply over the moon!

Hope to maybe meet a few fellow members there tomorrow!!! :D
