This is London Calling! Continuing their mission of bringing whisky to the people, those dramineers at The Whisky Lounge along with cutting edge East London venue Oval Space, are joining forces to bring the craft, innovation and heritage of whisky to the people of the capital as part of the first ever London Whisky Weekender.
The three day festival which kicks off on May 16th will boast some of the best known names in whisky industry, along with a whole host of small, craft distillers.
Over the weekend there will be a whole host of whisky based dramanagins, including exclusive tastings of rare pre World War II whiskies on the rooftop overlooking one of the last remaining Blitz sites in London, along with an East End whisky cocktail bar curated by Molecular cocktail specialist Lounge Bohemia on Oval.
The London Whisky Weekender will invite visitors to delve deeper into the history and production of this sophisticated spirit.
To start getting in the swing of things we’re thrilled to announce that we'll be hosting a very special blind Tweet Tasting, that will preview and feature some of the finest drams on offer over the big weekend.
So if you’re free on the evening of May 8th and would like to take part in a very special evening of pre festival tweet tastery, register your interest by emailing your name, postal address and Twitter handle via the contact tab, remembering to mark the subject line #WhiskyWeekender
The closing date to register is May 3rd and if you are registering to take part please make sure that you will actually be free on the night!
This particular tasting is open to UK residents only!
Even if you're not one of the selected Tweet Tasters, it'd be great to have you following all the night’s dramspankery, so we look forward to seeing you over on Twitter on May 8th at 7pm BST via hash tag #WhiskyWeekender
