THE ONLY WHISKY SHOW
After a three year absence due to the global pandemic, we are very pleased to announce our annual whisky festival, The Only Whisky Show, is returning this year, and in addition, will be held in Cape Town for the first time!
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. We offer 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.
DATES AND VENUES
The Only Whisky Show will be taking place in both Joburg and Cape Town this year! The show will run for 2-nights in each city, with the doors opening at 6pm and exhibitors will stop pouring at 10pm.
JOBURG: 28th and 29th July, The Deck @ Wanderers in Illovo
CAPE TOWN: 4th and 5th August, Avenue @ Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront
Tickets are now on sale and can found at the bottom of this page. Further information on the venues, food options, masterclasses and the full whisky list, will be added soon.
Our last show in 2019 had a final count of 240 premium whiskies available for tasting, including dozens of releases unavailable in SA. We are currently working on this year's offering and guarantee at least 200 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, “Copper Drams”. Each attendee will receive 3 copper coupons that they can exchange for any 3 Copper Drams they would like to try. (Please note that due to the limited nature of these whiskies, they are served on a first-come, first-served while the liquid lasts.) A full list of whiskies will be available here before the show, and we will start sharing the list as exhibitors/brands confirm attendence in the coming weeks.
Food will be available at the show, at your own expense, for the duration of the evening from 6pm until 10pm. It is recommended you bring cash to speed up the process, however, credit card facilities will be available. There will be a vegetarian option. Further details on food will be available here, closer to the time of the event.
