The Relaxed Whisky Weekend

6 – 8 September 2013

A note from our friends at Maltstock

Fellow whisky enthusiasts,

Just slightly more than one more week to go, and it’s Maltstock time again! We’re all really looking forward to it. It promises to be a fantastic weekend again. And (touch wood) even the weather just might be OK! -click- We have a record number of 12 very interesting masterclasses for you. There will be music and entertainment (Gordon Scott and Scotch and Folk) and excellent food! Of course there’s the brilliant BBQGuru team and The Highlander Inn will make you the best Scottish breakfast. And on Saturday afternoon there will a delicious selection of food to match whisky in our Whisky and Food Pairing.

We are very proud to be hosting a record number of 12 different free masterclasses this year. (in random order: Amrut, Suntory, the Glenrothes, the Balvenie, Tamdu, the Whisky Shop Dufftown,  Specialty drinks/ the Whisky Exchange, Master of Malt, Highland Park, Hans Offringa, Benriach/ Glendronach and Cadenhead) All our guests have chosen their favorites by now. Everybody will be able to attend their number one masterclass and one or two more! Besides the more traditional mastrclasses there will be a big masterclass during the campfire in which everybody can take part (see below) and a very special private masterclass for the winners of the Whiskyquiz featuring Hans Offringa.

The Whisky Shop Dufftown team has been working hard to create a challenging and fun whisky quiz for the forthcoming Maltstock. It will be quick, funny and very, very annoying! And since it is a whiskyquiz after all, and not the “-who is best at searching for whisky facts on the internet or in their personal mobile library- challenge”, this year internet and books will not be allowed… :p

Guinness & Grolsch
This year we’ll have two kinds of beer in stock at our bar. Guinness and Grolsch. Of course all drinks are included in your ticket price, so all teas, coffees, softdrinks, water and beers are available with our bar staff during Maltstock.

Campfire (weather providing)
The 2013 Maltstock campfire will be a very special one. Entertainment by Maltstock veteran Jock Shaw (Scotch and Folk) and the first ever campfire masterclass by Donald MacLellan (Benriach/ Glendronach).

The whiskyquiz isn’t the only opportunity to win some great prizes. There’s also a big raffle. We would like to thank all who contributed this year.

Ardbeg Gallileo
Next week, just before Maltstock, the winner of the Maltstock Ardbeg Monthly Prizedraw, grand prize, the Bottle of Ardbeg Gallileo will be drawn. So… any plans to still come and visit us? There are no beds available anymore but there is a camping nearby. Be sure to buy your ticket up front, there are no tickets available at the Maltstock entrance.

Maltstock 2014 tickets at a discount
Starting Friday September 6th, tickets will be available for Maltstock 2014. If you buy your 2014 tickets before midnight Sunday the 8th of September they’re available at the old price of just € 195,-. After midnight they will be € 225,- (or € 195,- if you arrange your own accommodation, like camping) The sixth edition of Maltstock (next year) will be held from 5 – 7 September 2014.

To all of our guests this year: we will send you an E-mail next week with all the latest information and with your masterclass schedule.

We are looking forward to meeting you all and enjoy a relaxing weekend!

Arthur, Bob, Rogier & Teun
