An exciting event for any casual or serious fans of scotch, bourbon, whiskey or cocktails.

The Whiskey Affair continues it’s nationwide tour by coming to G Live, Guildford on 6th July.

Coming on the back of their hugely successful London, Winchester and Brighton events, it’s a lively and fun night out for any fans of whiskey where they can discover new brands and blends. With the event split into four sections - scotch, bourbon, whiskey and whiskey cocktails - there’s something for all levels of knowledge.

This festival started in London in 2015 and moved nationwide in 2016, with 2019 promising  to be even bigger and better! It originated from a simple idea: to allow people to comprehensively  explore the world of whiskey against a backdrop of good music, good fun and a sense of  inclusiveness for any level of knowledge. For the Whiskey Affair:  Guildford they’ve stepped it up  another gear.

Alongside live music and representatives from the brands, they’ve got tasting  sessions, free samples from a number of new brands, and an excellent mix of brand ambassadors  animatedly conversing on their favourite subject. All these factors and more mean  you’re in for a great event and even friends and partners with no interest in whiskey can sample  the cocktail menu and still enjoy the session. Who knows - with a variety of whiskeys ranging from  smooth bourbons to spiced whiskies, you may even be able to change their minds… 

Organisers are keen to evangelise about the whiskey possibilities and share their enthusiasm with  a wide audience: 

“Back when we started our affair with whiskey, we had so many friends  who were knowledgeable about different whiskeys and were often lost as to where to start.  We wanted to dip our toes into the differences and similarities within the brands and learn how  to judge which ?nishes and ages suited our tastes more but we wanted to do so with friends  and have a good night out at the same time!

There are some wonderful, smaller independent  distillers involved next to household names so there is a true mix of brands to sample.  We’ll have  wonderful live music and speakers to provide our entertainment for the sessions and a  photo booth will allow a permanent (and occasionally risqué!) memory of the event   It’s going to be great fun and we can’t wait to share it!”
