Another Whisky Event – The Sydney Whisky Show 2012
Sydney based fine whisky retailer World Of Whisky is putting on their own whisky event in 2012 titled The Whisky Show. World of Whisky is located in Double Bay but the show will be held at The Tattersalls Club in Sydney City. The Whisky Show will be over 2 days, 20th July and 21st july with a ticket price of $50 online or $60 at the door.
I honestly have to say that I am not even slightly excited or interested by this notion of another whisky event. That is not to say it won't be great and in fact it probably will. I know little of this event nor have I even been to the World Of Whisky (though other members have) and have had good things to say about the knowledge and experience of the staff. It is more the case to me Sydney already has enough major events in whisky through the year with most of the same distillers making an appearance showing the same products. I personally have now found that one event a year is enough for me and I would rather invest my funds in a nice bottle of whisky that purchase another ticket.
Pick your whisky event of pick them all it is of course up to you. None-the-less here is another to add to the list of choices.
Keep an eye on the Gourmantic website as I believe if anyone will be attending and commenting on how the show turns out it will be them. I personally will be looking forward to the review.
Good luck to The Sydney Whisky Show and hopefully they will find their niche.
