SCOTLAND’S  BIGGEST WHISKY FESTIVAL GOES VIRTUAL IN APRIL – Scotch Whisky News

SCOTLAND’S  BIGGEST WHISKY FESTIVAL GOES VIRTUAL IN APRIL

FULL FESTIVAL MOVED TO NOVEMBER SUBJECT TO COVID CONDITIONS

Spirit of Speyside festival has today (Thursday 28th January) confirmed that it is going to bring together some of the region’s most loved distilleries and whisky makers online instead of in person in April. With a full programme to be announced in the coming weeks, events confirmed so far include a tour of one of Scotland’s newest and most contemporary distilleries, Dalmunach Distillery, from Master Distiller, Alan Winchester; an exploration of Benriach’s World of Flavour and new portfolio with Global Brand Ambassador Stewart Buchanan and a whistle stop virtual tasting tour of Malt Whisky Country with The Malt Whisky Trail.

Festival organisers are hopeful that the event, which would have been celebrating its 21st year in April, will be able to go ahead in person on 3rd – 8th November 2021 providing it is safe for everyone to travel at that time, based on Scottish Government advice.

The decision to postpone original plans for the 2021 Whisky Festival reflects the quickly-evolving situation as a result of the new variant of the Covid-19 virus and current recommendations from the Scottish Government to restrict public gatherings and travel as a preventative measure.

James Campbell, Chairman at The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, said: 
 

“Given whisky lovers won’t be able to come to Speyside for our annual festival this April, we have decided to take the festival to them until it is safe for visitors to return to Malt Whisky Country hopefully later in the year.

We can’t wait to welcome new and returning visitors from the UK and further afield to this beautiful part of the world. In the meantime, we hope that our online programme of events in April will lift everyone’s spirits and give people a taste of what to expect from the festival in November. We will then revert back to our traditional date in 2022.”

The full programme of virtual events will be listed on www.spiritofspeyside.com and will be available for preview on 11th March 2021. Tickets will go on sale online on 16th March 2021.

Notes:

First launched in 1999, the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival’s annual celebration of Scotland’s national drink has developed into one of the largest events of its kind anywhere in the world. With a programme of over hundreds of whisky-inspired events over six days, the Festival is a mecca for the curious beginner and the whisky connoisseur alike. Festival events take place throughout Speyside, the biggest whisky producing region in Scotland, located in the Moray area in the North-East of the county between Aberdeen and Inverness.

Over the years, the Festival has developed close links with many Speyside businesses and communities who help to fund the festival. It is a true team effort to deliver an ever-improving range of events and services to make the six days of the Festival a truly unforgettable experience.

The company is limited by guarantee, it runs the festival with a voluntary board of directors drawn from key areas of the whisky industry along with other local businesses and tourism organisations. For further information please visit:

Malt Messenger Bulletin Year End Inventory Sale LAST DAY TOMORROW! – Whisky Sale News

Malt Messenger Bulletin

Our Year End Inventory Sale

It’s that time of year again, the Annual KWM Year-End Inventory Sale is on now!

The sale has become a staple here at KWM, something that our customers wait for with bated breath. The sale’s origins long predate my tenure, which is now in its 18th year. I don’t know exactly when it began, but there is a method to our madness…

We are closed this coming Monday to do a very detailed store-wide inventory count, but before we start, we are going to try and shed some stock. We have sharpened our pencils to offer some amazing deals throughout the store. Some of these deals are so good they won’t last long.

Now through 6 PM Sunday night (January 31st, 2021), you can SAVE 15-50% on all in-stock Wine, 10-40% on most in-stock Whisky and 5-30% on all Other Spirits in-stockr.

There are PDFs linked below for the wines discounted more than 15% and the Whisky & Spirits discounted more than 10%.

You are welcome to shop in-store, but if you are planning to do so, be sure to dress for the weather, you may be asked to wait. We continue to welcome just 6 customers in-store at a time. Please be sure to don a mask, and if you’re not feeling well, stay home!

Our preference continues to be for customers to take advantage of online shopping where possible. The deals are just as good online – exactly the same in fact – and you don’t need to throw your parka on to browse them.

Demand is high, so please be patient. Please wait until you receive confirmation your order is ready before coming in to pick it up. Plan on giving us at least 5-6 business hours to get it ready.

City-wide delivery is available for a $10 fee but is free for orders over $100. We are expecting a lot of demand for delivery next week though, so please be patient!

One last thing, but it is an important one… we’ve added another new Virtual Whisky Tasting… Join us on Thursday, June 11 for Signatory Vintage & The Single Cask. One of our beloved alumni, Hunter Sullivan, is back for a while, and we’re pulling him out of retirement to co-host the Signatory Vintage & the SIngle Cask tasting with me. We have an awesome range, more details below.

Happy Hunting!

The Whisky Exchange Blog Review of 2020 – Whisky News (2020)

 

The Whisky Exchange Blog Review of 2020

Well. That was definitely a year. But hidden in among the various trials and tribulations of 2020 there were a load of excellent drink-related things, and, optimists that we are here at The Whisky Exchange, it’s time to celebrate them. So, without further ado, it’s time for the now-traditional (even if we did miss last year) TWE Blog Review of the Year – 2020 edition.

A quiet start

The beginning of 2020 was rather sedate, with a focus on low and no-alcohol alternatives (as well as some great alcoholic classics) in our excellently/questionably named No-Low-Status Quo feature. Burns night appeared towards the end of January, as it does every year (keep an eye on the blog for this year’s tips, coming soon) and we rolled quietly into spring. This year’s Rosebank RoseGrace – (still three more to come) appeared on the website and disappeared just as quickly, with a St Patrick’s Day themed Irish Whiskey focus following in March.

Then things went a bit weird.

Lockdown Blues

With the UK’s pandemic lockdown beginning in late March, things changed very quickly for us at The Whisky Exchange. With most of the team working from home – with the majority not having been back to TWE HQ since – we started looking into ways of bringing our drinks family from across the UK and around the world together.

The Specialty Drinks packing team got to work filling boxes with supplies for drinks industry people struggling during the pandemic.

First, we turned to the bars of London. Since The Whisky Exchange started, we’ve been making sure that they’ve had the best spirits available at all times, and with their business disappearing overnight when they were forced to close, we decided to help. With many staff furloughed or laid off, Speciality Drinks – our trade wing – joined forces with Edrington-Beam-Suntory to create wellbeing packs for folks in the drinks trade who needed a helping hand: boxes of staples to fill gaps in their cupboards. This carried on through the year, wrapping up – for the time being – in November 2020, with more than 6,500 packs sent around the UK.

We then turned to the bars themselves, and, working with a selection of the UK’s finest establishments, put together a selection of make-it-at-home cocktail packs and ready-to-drink cocktails to let you recreate their signature drinks in your own kitchen – Bring the Bar Home. We had 13 packs complete with recipes and videos from bars ranging from the classic Rules and Blue Bar at The Berkeley Hotel, to modern London institutions like Trailer Happiness and Laki Kane, as well newcomers like Coupette and Kwānt. With a share of the proceeds from each pack going back to the bar who created it, the scheme helped out while the bars pivoted into running their own at-home deliveries.

You can watch it all on Tv

Having worked with our industry friends, our attention turned to our customers – you. With lockdown in full force, we wanted to find a way of continuing to share our love of great drinks, and jumped feet first into the virtual world.

It started with our virtual tastings. Every week from May to October, with a couple more in December, we ran an online tasting, with tasting packs available to buy from The Whisky Exchange website, and an interactive Zoom room open for anyone who had one.

Rum By Flavour was our first tasting, back in early May…things have come on a long way since then.

We also streamed them live on Facebook, so that anyone could join in. You can find 23 of them on YouTube in our Virtual Tastings playlist, and there are even a few packs left on the website if you want to join in.

But it didn’t stop there…

A Virtual Whisky Show

With an in-person Whisky Show impossible, we went online. And then expanded things. And then expanded things again. In the end, our plan for a 2.5 day show bloomed into a week long event with more than 400 talks and tastings, all delivered online.

The hosts

Hosted by a three-headed hydra of booze – Bubbles, barley and beer: head buyer Dawn Davies, writer Dave Broom and me – with assistance from WhiskyCast‘s Mark Gillespie, we covered everything from sustainability to inclusivity, with stops at distilleries around the world, chatting with the people behind the drams. And we drank some great whiskies, available as tasting packs to try at home – we even still have a few left if you want to join in.

Exclusive Drinks

We started the year by wrapping up our 20th Anniversary with a final selection of exclusive birthday bottlings – we had more than 50 special bottlings through our big birthday year.  Anniversary over, we continued to put out great whiskies, rums and more, all exclusive to us.

Each bottle from this year’s Whisky Show releases had a unique label, part of a larger design created for each of the three whiskies.

From the increasingly legendary Redbreast 1989 30 Year Old Port Cask – still a few bottles left, but it won’t last long – to our Whisky Show bottlings – Whisky: An Ever-Changing World – and a whole host of great whiskies.  We’ve got more coming in the new year, and the first bottlings are already arriving…watch this space.

Along with the exclusives, we also launched our own new line of whiskies – The Whisky Exchange Single Casks. Specially selected by co-founder Sukhinder Singh, they give us a chance to showcase some of the best casks he has hiding in warehouses across Scotland.

Anything else?

Lots…

We kicked off our Meet the Maker series with interviews across the worlds of whisky.

We celebrated World Whisky Day with a day of interviews with whisky makers around the world, all streamed on Facebook – you can catch up with our World Whisky Day playlist if you missed it.

The launch of Waterford caused a stir in the whisky world, with founder Mark Reynier – formerly of Bruichladdich – and his terroir-forward approach inspiring debate. I jumped in with my take – Waterford: Terroir and Teireoir, and the first releases shot off the shelves.

..and we announced our Whisky of the Year – thank you to everyone who helped out by voting. The awards will be back in Autumn.

What next?

After the weirdness of 2020, we aren’t sitting still in 2021.

Our virtual tastings will be back soon – keep an eye on the blog for updates, as we’ll have a full program appearing over the coming weeks. On top of that, expect virtual Whisky Show: Old & Rare, and a combination of physical and virtual fun (government guidelines permitting) for and Whisky Show. Planning for Whisky Show is in full swing and tickets are on sale now – head to the Whisky Show website to find out more.

We’ve put 2020 to bed, and 2021 is ripe for filling with great drinks and fun times. We’ll hopefully see you all soon, either in person or online. Either way: Happy New Year.

Whisky Wednesday Returns Soon!

Independent Bottler The Single Cask Supports the NHS with Single Cask Inchfad – Scotch Whisky News

4 year old Inchfad bottled for the NHS with profits going to Healthcare charities

Independent Bottler The Single Cask have bottled a unique single cask whisky and is donating all profits to Healthcare charities.

The COVID crisis has been tough for everyone, and continues to present challenges. The heroes of the hour are our NHS, healthcare, and frontline workers. They have, and continue, to look after us all.

As soon as warehouses in Scotland opened again after lockdown, The Single Cask decided to swing into action and bottle something special. They chose a unique single cask Inchfad, distilled at Loch Lomond in the Highlands. Inchfad is rare today, with the distillery itself no longer bottling this range. This heavily-peated single malt scotch whisky is renowned for its soft fruit and malt notes.

The Single Cask selected a four year old ex-bourbon cask, distilled in 2016. At cask strength of 61.4% the whisky has been bottled in its natural colour and without chill-filtration.

Tasting notes for this whisky are:

● Nose: barbecued, smokey pineapple with sweet malt, seasoned with white pepper and cinnamon.

● Palate: soft tropical fruit in the form of pineapple and mango, with both the malt character of the original spirit and the influence of the oak cask coming through, together with a touch of white pepper and cinnamon.

● Finish: long and satisfying with elements from both nose and palate present – smoked pineapple with malt, oak and wood spice.

All profits from the 197 bottles of this single cask expression will be donated by The Single Cask to healthcare charities in recognition of, and in support of, their ongoing efforts fighting COVID.

This 4 year old Inchfad bottled for the NHS is available to buy for £49 at www.thesinglecask.co.uk/nhs

For further queries please contact Ed Leigh: ed@thesinglecask.co.uk

Notes

About The Single Cask

The Single Cask bottles unique spirits one cask at a time. We search hard to find exceptional single malt whisky, Irish whiskey, and American bourbon. We like whiskies that showcase a distillery’s characteristics or an interesting maturation technique. But in the end, if it’s delicious, we put it in a bottle. We bottle our whiskies at cask strength, natural colour, and without chill-filtration. This keeps the whisky as pure and natural as possible; just as we found it in the cask. Our glass bottles are styled like a decanter, designed to be passed around a group of friends as they enjoy sharing a dram together. The best whisky should be opened, shared and enjoyed; not left to gather dust on a shelf. We’re passionate about what we do. We’re here to get these single cask releases into whisky-lovers’ hands.

WHISKY SHOW 2020 UPDATE – Whisky News

WHISKY SHOW 2020 UPDATE

The past few months have been a hugely daunting time in the world and our team at The Whisky Exchange have been fighting to make the 12th year of our beloved Whisky Show happen in a safe and pleasant environment. From relentlessly researching PPE to cutting back certain aspects of the show to create the most secure environment possible, we have exhausted all avenues in bringing together the show safely for 2020.

Unfortunately, we have come to a point where we can no longer continue with the physical show and must confirm the cancellation of Whisky Show 2020, which was due to take place at Old Billingsgate, London, 2-4 October. This was not a decision we took lightly and we would like to extend our sincerest apologies to you all. While we are unable to meet in person this year, we are delighted to be launching Virtual Whisky Show. Get ready for a week-long whisky extravaganza featuring everything you love about Whisky Show.

All tickets purchased, including those for masterclasses and Johnnie Walker blending classes, will be fully refunded to the original card used for payment. Our team are beginning to process refunds which should be received within five working days, along with a confirmation email. Please be aware that this can sometimes take longer depending on your card provider. If you have not received a refund from us within ten working days, then please contact us at office@whiskyshow.com.

We can’t wait to see you all back at Old Billingsgate in 2021, but in the meantime we’ll see you online!

VIRTUAL GREAT BUFFALO CHASE 5K HOSTED RECORD NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS – American Whiskey News

VIRTUAL GREAT BUFFALO CHASE 5K

HOSTED RECORD NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS

More than $21,000 raised for local VFW, $15,000 donated to local food pantry 

        FRANKFORT, Franklin County, Ky (July 28, 2020) – Runners from all 50 states and seven countries participated in Buffalo Trace Distillery’s 19th annual Great Buffalo Chase 5k which was held virtually for the first time over July 4th weekend. This was also the first time this race, which has historically attracted top runners from across the United States and the world, received runner participation in all of the 50 states, and the most participants to ever run the race in a single year. In total, 1,124 people participated in the virtual race.

Registrations for the race raised more than $21,000 for the city of Frankfort’s VFW Post 4075’s annual fireworks show which has been rescheduled for this fall.

The race kicked off the morning of July 3 with the singing of the National Anthem, performed by Christina Kaloyanides, a soprano opera singer from Chicago. Then, runners and walkers participated in this year’s virtual race in their hometowns and local neighborhoods wherever they were located during the period of July 3-5 instead of running at the Distillery as in the past. Participants were mailed a commemorative T-shirt and race bib and had the option to record and submit their personal race time.

Due to the nature of this being a virtual race, and in the spirit of fairness, prizes were not awarded to top runners this year. On behalf of all participants, and in commitment to supporting others, Buffalo Trace Distillery is donating $15,000, which would have been prize money for top runners, to God’s Pantry Food Bank to support the local Franklin County community.

All registrants were entered into a raffle for the chance to receive a hand-made American Flag made from bourbon barrel staves, to be donated to the charity of their choice for fundraising. The recipient of this raffle was Chris German who donated the hand-made barrel-stave flag to the SJ5K Foundation, which supports local, Plymouth-Canton, Michigan families facing crisis situations. This nonprofit, which was started by members of German’s family, will use the barrel-stave flag to raise funds for the foundation.

Participants also were encouraged to take part in the virtual patriotic attire costume contest on the Buffalo Trace Distillery Facebook Page and by using #ChaseTheBuffalo for the chance to win a prize from the Gift Shop.

A full listing of submitted race times can be found on the Buffalo Trace Distillery website, here.

Relaxed break…Maltstock 2020 Cancelled – Whisky News

Relaxed Break

Hi Maltstockees,

After 11 years of Maltstock, we guess we deserve a relaxed break… 😉 We’ve decided we have to cancel Maltstock 2020.

Social distancing is the very opposite of what Maltstock is all about. But, the safety of our guests and crew is always our number one priority. Covid-19 has made it impossible to safely host a relaxed Maltstock weekend. So, sadly, there will be no Maltstock weekend this year.

Annette, Bob, Klaas, Stan, Teun

But relax! We’ll be back in 2021!

Dates for next year are

10-12 September 2021

We hope to see you all next year. That would be very relaxed!

Tickets

Tickets for the 12th edition will be available mid-September. First everyone who had already bought a ticket will get a chance to use it for the 2021 edition.

The past months we’ve tried to bring you a little bit off relaxed entertainment. We hope you enjoyed our virtual flyer hunt, the Black Sheep Red Sheep virtual morning walk, the Milk & Honey online tasting and of course the Whisky Shop Dufftown Relaxed Whisky Quiz!

Now we will get busy getting everything ready for 2021. In a very relaxed way of course.

PS

We do realize it’s our fabulous crew you will miss the most. So here they are:
