About

Now in its ninth year, the UK’s biggest and best whisky show is returning to Old Billingsgate.

The event will showcase more than 600 of the world’s finest whiskies and bring together the industry’s top blenders and distillers.

Anyone wishing to attend any of these events MUST pre-register to attend at https://whiskyshow.com/london/trade-press/

 

Meet the Maker, with John Glaser (Compass Box), Colin Dunn (Diageo), Ashok Chokalingam (Amrut), Ian Chang (Kavalan), Roger Melander (Box Whisky)

Get to know some of the most-loved and experienced whisky heroes in an intimate, yet fast-paced session. Each presenter will bring along one exceptional dram with which they hope to win your heart, though they will have just 10 minutes to put their charms to the test. With only six people at each table, it’ll be an intimate affair with time to get to know both your expert and their whisky.

12:00-13:00 – Masterclass Room 1.

Guests will need to register to attend at reception.

 

Discover Maker’s Mark with Amanda Humphrey

Think you know Maker’s Mark…? Think again! A rare chance to enjoy the much loved classic Maker’s Mark. A recipe the distillery has stood by for over a century, alongwith some special treats that Amanda Humphrey has sourced especially for the show.

14:00-15:00 – Masterclass Room 1.

Guests will need to register to attend at reception.

 

‘Stock up your Bars, the Irish are coming!’ – The great Irish Whisky Debate, hosted by Nate Brown from Merchant House.

Irish whiskey is going from strength to strength and there are a number of new brands and distilleries joining in.

Nate will be discussing the current state of the Irish whiskey market, its great history and looking at what the future might hold. Joining him on stage will be Billy Leighton from Midleton, Jack Teeling from Teeling, and Elliot Hughes from Dingle.

1pm on the Main Stage

No registration required. Please arrive early though as seating is limited.

 

Cigars and Dalmore Pairing

Founded in 1790, Hunters & Frankua is the UK’s leading independent cigar importer. Dalmore is one of the world's most loved whisky and famous for its ability to pair with cigars. We are delighted to have them both join us at the show to teach us about this wonderful tradition.

There will be two classes, each matching a different cigar with a Dalmore whisky. The pairings have been carefully chosen to best express and complement one another.

Tickets can be purchased at the reception area upon arrival.

 

Speciality Drinks Whisky Cocktail of the Year Competition

Speciality Drinks are looking to uncover a new classic cocktail with Scotch whisky at its heart. The whisky’s characteristics need to shine through while other ingredients and techniques add originality and complexity. Following on from the semi-finals which took place at Bar Swift, the Whisky Show will play host to the four remaining finalists.  Declan McGurk of The Savoy will be our compere for the grand final and the four entries will be judged by Alice Lascelles, Brian Silva, Matt Wiley and Sukhinder Singh.
