1. - 2. November 2019
WHISKY LIFE! PRAGUE
New Town Hall, Charles sq. 1, Prague
1st and 2nd November 2019
The seventh annual Prague whisky festival, again organised in the New Town hall in the historical centre of Prague
Over 150 different whiskies to choose from, including rarities and those that are not yet available in the Czech republic
It doesn't matter if you are completely new to whisky or whether you are an avid whisky lover - the festival caters to everyone
Attend one of our many Masterclasses, where whisky experts will guide you through a tasting of their handpicked whiskies
Live music, bag pipes, kilts, cigars, food… Boredom will not be an option!
Masterclasses are an important part of the festival. Our exhibitors always invite over their brand ambassadors from all over the world to come to Prague to give you exclusive masterclasses, where they share with you all their knowledge of their brands and whisky in general. You will get to learn about the history of each brand, how the whisky is made and what makes each brand special and you will learn how to distinguish the small nuances in taste and smell.
This year we will welcome Billy Walker as our special guest. Billy is a highly respected whisky expert with a unique insight into the world of whisky business. A few years ago he sold the BenRiach Distillery Company to Brown Forman for over 400 million dollars. As the company's director he was in charge of the BenRiach, GlenDronach, and Glenglassaugh distilleries which it owned and turned them into highly respected whiskies. Recently he and his partners bought the GlenAllachie distillery which he hopes to turn into a whisky popular all around the world, similarly to what he did with BenRiach years ago.
At this year's festival you will be able to attend his masterclass where he will share his expertise and introduce you to the lovely GlenAllachie.
