That's a wrap for 2022! Thank you to all who attended this year's The Only Whisky Show in both Joburg and Cape Town. It was terrific to get back to sharing whiskies in person after such a long break. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.


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.



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 sold out for all nights except for Thursday in Cape Town, which are available still here, for now!



Our intention for The Only Whisky Show is to have as large a selection as possible to taste, with both new and exciting releases alongside our favourite and reliable brands. We are currently working on this year's offering and are aiming for 200 premium whiskies. View the whisky list here.

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.
