About The Only Whisky Show

Please note the 2018 show has passed. Our next show will be on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th July, 2019. We will update the this page closer to the time with details.

Welcome to the newest whisky festival on the South African whisky circuit, proudly brought to you WhiskyBrother, now in the planning phase for our 2nd year's show. Tickets are available here.

Whisky enthusiasts love to try new whiskies and love to share their passion and engage with others whisky fans. The Only Whisky Show is the show for the whisky die-hards; those that are interested in the content in their glass and learning about the history, people, places and flavours that make whisky such an incredible drink.

The Only Whisky Show offers a more intimate whisky experience that doesn’t require elbowing your way through crowds, along with the largest range of premium whiskies available to taste.



26 and 27 July 2018


6pm to 10pm


Mustang Room, Sandton


R450 per person


450 people/night (strictly limited)


Our inaugural show last year (2017) had a final count of 209 premium whiskies available for tasting, including dozens of whiskies/whiskeys unavailable in SA. We are still working on the whisky list and will update as the show approaches. This year, again, our goal is a minimum of 200 different whiskies.

Access to the show allows you to taste as many whiskes as you like. In addition, there will be limited stock of some very special whiskies we are calling “Copper Drams”. Each attendee will receive 3 copper coupons that they can exchange for any 3 Copper Coupon Drams they would like to try. (Please note that due to the limited nature of these whiskies, they will be served on a first-come, first-served while the liquid lasts.) Additional Copper Coupons can be purchased at the show for R100.


There will be two food vendors at both nights of the show, with food on sale for an additional price from 6pm when the doors open until 1030pm (half an hour after whisky is stopped being poured). All meals will be R70, it is recommended you bring cash to speed up the process, however, credit card facilities will be available. There will be a vegetarian option.
