Manchester Whisky Festival 2011 - Lowry Hotel - Saturday 15th October - 4th October, 2011
The 3rd Manchester Whisky Festival takes place in the stunning setting of the 5--star Lowry Hotel on Saturday 15th October in two sessions, 11am to 3pm and 4pm to 8pm.
An independent event, run by vibrant and totally independent whisky events company, The Whisky Lounge, the festival is the 3rd in the city since 2009. It has now developed into the largest event in the Whisky Lounge’s portfolio, and the biggest whisky event in the UK, outside London. Nearly 1000 whisky fans and ‘newbies’ will visit the event in 2011, and for the industry it has become a ‘must--do’.
Over 20 exhibitors, around 40 distilleries and close to 200 whiskies will be on sample over the course of the day. Whiskies from the large and small, from the traditional areas of Scotland and Ireland, as well as the more recently established distilleries from England, India and Japan.
There is also a big exclusive. The Kavalan distillery of Taiwan,
which surprised everyone last year when it was preferred over three Scotch whiskies in a blind tasting competition in Scotland, will be making their European whisky festival debut in Manchester. Ian Chang, the distillery’s master blender,
will also be running a ‘masterclass’ session, giving further insight into the intrigue as well as revealing the secrets of their success.
Of the festival, Whisky Evangelist and company founder, Eddie Ludlow said;
‘We are even more than usually excited by the prospect of this event. We can now count on fantastic support from the industry in order to give the customer the best possible show. The incredible range of flavours and styles on offer is breathtaking and there truly
is something for everyone at this show. One of our commitments is to bring new followers to the ‘flock’ and to show them that whisky is not about lairds, tartan and stags. Like everything good in life, it’s about the moment and learning to enjoy it.’
