The FNB Whisky Live Festival is, not surprisingly, all about whisky, whiskey and all the food and drink that goes well with either.
I went last year and was quite blown away with the event. Great ambience, incredibly passionate whiskey/whisky drinkers, and a lot was learnt (especially that Islay Whisky is not for the faint-hearted).
Anyway this year’s event takes place in Cape Town (4-6 November) and Johannesburg (11-14 November). Visitors can sample a variety of whiskies and whisky cocktails in the Tasting Hall, find out how to pair food with whisky (yes, it can be done!) in the Pyotts’ Sensory Zone, or go the whole hog by attending one of the one-hour long crash course Whisky Workshops.
