Latest Whisky News - Whiskies of the World 2012 - Update

WoW 2012 News

The countdown clock to WOW 2012 reads T-minus 7 months and counting. Launch into fall with our end-of-summer sale and lock down tickets to the grand event at early bird savings before this deal expires on Sept 30, 2011.

We don’t want to tease you with what's coming but the WOW staff just can’t resist sharing some tantalizing previews to get your taste buds in the mood:

Diageo presents a complete tour of Scotland with their quintessential Classic Malts. The Classic Malts lineup consists of many of the highest awarded malts from the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and San Francisco Spirits Competition (SFSC). Dalwhinnie, Talisker, Cragganmore, Oban, Lagavulin and Glenkinchie represent a full range of whisky flavor profiles.

The Bushmills Pipe and Drum Band grace us with the sounds of Ireland and of course Bushmills Irish Whiskey graces our palates.

North America distilleries Crown Royal, Bulleit and George Dickle each bring their fine beverages for your sampling pleasure. 

Look out for the new Oban Experience booth for WoW 2012!

Beam Global brings their exciting Mixology booth to dazzle WOW with whisk(e)y based mixed drinks and present samples from their impressive portfolio including Laphroaig, The Small Batch Bourbon Collection and Canadian Club. If you just can’t wait to try some of these before WOW 2012, get up close and personal with the Beam Global Ambassadors and join our dinner in San Jose on Sept 12, 2011!  (See below)

High West  will be releasing its newest Silver Whiskey this October -  OMG Pure Rye.  Read the fascinating history of American Rye and High West's quest for bringing back this true American product.

Douglas Laing is here to stay!  After their success at WoW 2011 and establishing contacts and distribution across the Golden State, their excellent whisky easily guaranteed itself shelf space in California’s finest beverage emporiums. We anticipate several new and exciting expressions from Douglas Liang.

Part of the Art of Whisky is pairing with foods. Checkout the classic malts Malt-Matcher food pairing section and start preparing for your own Labor Day weekend pairings.
