Whisky Live Boston 2013...

And Whisky Live is back to Boston... Cannot believe that it's been almost a year since I moved to Boston area. The first Whisky Live Boston happened literally two days after I moved here and it was the best welcome party ever. We had a blast together that night with Joshua Hatton and Jason Johnstone-Yellin from Single Cask Nation, Thom Mitchell from WhiskyRI and three Malt Impostor(s) John, Stephen and Bill... This year it looks like it will be even better.

Whisky Magazine's foremost tasting event will feature again a long array of Scotch, American and World whiskies. October 2nd, on Wednesday Bostonian whisky enthusiasts will come together to sample over 150 whiskies, meet master distillers, brand ambassadors and industry experts. This year’s event also includes the Boston debut of the Indie Spirits Expo, a show-within-a-show featuring small spirits entrepreneurs. Whisky Live tickets allow guests to visit the Indie Spirits Pavilion and sample gin, mezcal, vodka, liqueurs, and more from international craft producers and boutique importers.

In the press release Rob Allanson, the England-based editor of Whisky Magazine says: “Whisky Live has been a tremendous success around the world since it started in 2000 in Tokyo and London. We’re excited to expand our reach in America by bringing the event to Boston this fall. Of all the major cities in America, we’ve had our eye on Boston most closely over the past few years. Not only is it home to historic bars and pubs, but the increased number of whisky bars and the growth of sales of premium bourbons in the region makes us certain that Boston is a whisky-lover’s town.”

The event takes place October 2nd, Wednesday at the Park Plaza Castle, 130 Columbus Ave., from 6.30PM until 10PM. Tickets are $119. VIP tickets are $149. The event starts for VIP ticket holders at 5PM. For tickets hurry up and visit www.whiskylive.com. They might sell it out pretty early this year. I will post the schedule for masterclasses as soon as they announce... Keep tuned...
