Showcasing over 180 local and internationally established whisky brands at the CTICC!

The FNB Whisky Live Festival has a reputation as the largest, liveliest and most exciting whisky tasting lifestyle show of its kind in Africa, and this October, it once more, makes its way through South Africa, starting in Cape Town.

Taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from Wednesday, 3 October until Friday, 5 October 2012, the much-anticipated annual expo will be the place to go to sample established local, international premium lifestyle whisky products, as well as new whiskies launched in the South African market.

Lauded by critics for making whisky ‘exciting, fun, sexy and youthful’, the festival is as ideal for novices beginning to delve into the finer things in life as it is for seasoned connoisseurs who haven’t gone a day without a dram in years. Not only will attendees have the opportunity to flit (or stumble) from whisky stall to whisky stall in the grand Tasting Hall, but there will also be workshops outlining the history of the age-old drink as well as educating whisky lovers on differences in make and type; the one-hour tutorials may even present the chance to taste whiskies yet to be available in SA. Furthermore, festival-goers can join in or make up a party at the canapé and whisky pairing zone, the blending zone, the aroma zone and the distillation zone.

All in all, the organisers promise that the 2012 Whisky Live will offer something for everyone, with the only perquisite for attendance being that you are over 18.

Whether your preference is whisky or whiskey, this festival is the place to find out why.
