The Whisky Live Festival 2015 is on right now in Cape Town, and could there be a better time of the year to celebrate all that is warm, soothing and whisky-ish?

This annual festival showcases the best of the best, over the course of an event that runs from 18 to 20 June 2015. This year’s event will be held at The Lookout in the Waterfront.

Whisky Live combines a number of events that take place throughout South Africa. While the main event takes place in Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria and Cape Town have Live Showroom events that are pretty much just as good as the fully fledged festival. Whether you call it whisky or whiskey, one thing is certain: Whisky Live Cape Town is without a doubt one of the top festivals for those who enjoy this fine drink. This year’s event promises to be just as good as previous years’ events, with an excellent lineup.
During the event, attendees will be able to sample both American and Irish blends from a variety of distilleries. From bourbon to sours; finely aged blends to easy drinking options for new whisky fans, the event caters to a variety of taste buds. Exhibitors who will be showcasing at the event this year include the following brands to name but a few:
You can head on over to The Lookout between now and 20 June 2015 to get a taste of the action (no pun intended), and contact info can be found above for info on ticket sales. It is also worth noting that there is a special reduced package for designated drivers who want to attend without drinking. If you are planning to drink, be sure to organise a safe ride home via Uber or a non-drinking friend.
