Whisky 101 for Capetonians

Are you a whisky aficionado? Here is another great opportunity to expand your whisky knowledge at the 2017 Whisky Live’s “Celebrations” at Cape Town’s iconic V&A Waterfront from 6-8 April. Come meet local and international whisky enthusiasts and experts who will give you the low-down on the complexities and nuances perfect to turn you into an expert yourself.


South Africa’s own Master of the Quaich, Pierre Meintjes, aka ‘Mr Whisky’, will be delighting whisky lovers with his whisky tales, beautifully intertwined with the facts, to provide an interesting, all-encompassing whisky experience. Keeping with tradition, he will be representing the prestigious Bunnahabhain single malt whisky brand from Islay, off the west coast of Scotland. On offer will be the distillery’s award-winning 12-, 18-, and 25-year-old expressions.


Scottish Leader will also be there, showcasing its new perspective on Scotch whisky, specially crafted with the modern palate in mind. The stand will feature whisky and cocktail expert Vincent Motau. Scottish Leader’s recently launched limited-edition 12-year-old blended whisky will be on offer.
Tickets are available at www.ticketpros.co.za, starting at R200 each (R230 at the door), and include a tasting glass, 16 tasting vouchers, a Consol Glass bottle of water and a complimentary cocktail from Consol’s pop-up whisky bar.
The event starts at 18:00 and concludes at 22:00.
The Whisky Live Celebration promotes responsible drinking. No persons under the age of 18 will be allowed into the tasting hall. In addition to the designated driver tickets, UBER will be on hand to ensure that everyone in your party is able to have a good time.
