This is why, in 2014, we organized a whisky festival in Warsaw. How many times did you catch yourself wondering how great it would be if you could get to know the flavour of a whisky that you want to buy? That is the exact reason that the festival came into being! At a single time and place you will meet a few hundred varieties of whisky from almost the entire globe and, what is more important, you will have a chance to taste all of them. You can find out more about tastings by clicking the “At the festival” link.
Manufacturers of whisky will be ready to answer all your questions at every single stand. This festival is a unique opportunity to meet and talk to ambassadors, master blenders and representatives of brands presented during the event.
Our idea is to introduce you to the world of whisky. Each one is different, beautiful and complex. Every single one of you will surely find your type and something that suits you, but first, you must get to know them. During the festival, you will learn the history of individual brands, their distillation methods, origins and types. We will also enhance our festival by combining flavours and aromas with diverse meals, sweets, and coffee.
The festival lasts for two unforgettable days each year.
Yes. Tickets will be available online and at distribution points across Poland. Ticket prices will increase as the event date approaches. We advise you to purchase tickets online to avoid queues during the festival.
The purchased ticket will be sent to the email address you provided. Make sure to print the document and take it to the event with your ID. After arriving at the event (at the reception, which controls entry to the festival grounds) you will exchange your ticket for a festival bracelet and you will also receive a tasting glass. The bracelet entitles you to free tastings of dozens of selected editions available at the stands.
Each ticket allows its holder to taste whisky at all stands within the festival grounds. The ticket price also includes a tasting glass. There will also be paid drams of well-aged or special edition whiskies. The ticket does not include entry to Masterclass sessions, Food Pairing sessions and the VIP area.
Whisky Live Warsaw boasts with the widest selection of presented liquors. We search for exhibitors in all parts of the globe with the hope of finding interesting recommendations for our guests. So far, apart from Scotland and Ireland, we hosted whisky from Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Taiwan, India, USA and Australia. During the festival the “water of life” was also joined by leaders in other categories: Joseph Perrier champagne, Roberto Cavalli and Ostoya vodkas, Chabasse and Maison Rene Laclie cognacs, Botucal and Dictador rums, Chabasse armagnac, as well as Ole Smoky and Climax by Tim Smith moonshines.
Almost all editions presented by the exhibitors and available at the festival store. Additionally all whiskies at the festival store are sold at a 23% discount. You decide when to make a purchase. The discount is valid only during the festival.
It is important that you take you ID to the festival due to the event’s character. 😉
If you are a minor, visit us with a guardian. It is best to confess right away. We will sign a statement that will sort all.
Festival guests will be able to use parking spaces located close to the hotel at a special price. However, we advise leaving the car at home. 🙂
We encourage you to take photos. A photo contest will be held after the festival. Winner of the contest will have a chance to win a unique series of the festival whisky.
Of course, however we will provide special spots where you will be able to purchase sandwiches, cakes and coffee. Additionally, the festival restaurant prepared a special lunch menu for the festival. We invite you to join food pairing sessions that will offer not only great meals but also a chance to see how they were prepared.
Each of our guests receives a catalogue where this is outlined, and more…
This is the “more” in the catalogue. All stands will be marked on a map included in the catalogue.
