Chester Whisky Festival

Chester Whisky Festival

We were delighted to be asked to officially photograph the Chester Whisky Festival 2012 by Russ who runs the Chester Whisky and Liqueur Company based in the heart of Chester (we’d heartily recommend that you pop in if you are in the area as they often have interesting samples available for tasting!) This was the second year of this up and coming whisky festival and it was well attended with around 400 people making it through the doors during a cold Saturday in the old Roman city. Due to our photographic responsibilities we have less whisky notes than usual about the day, but we will be publishing subsequent posts on the rather excellent Tomatin and Glengoyne masterclasses, and also showcasing our whisky of the day which was a fiery cracker of a dram – stay tuned!

Midlands Whisky Festival

Midlands Whisky Festival

What a day we had! It is safe to say that the Midlands Whisky Festival rocks – it has a great location in the historic Stourbridge Town Hall, is organised by the historic Nickolls and Perks, and brought in malt fans and whisky from all over the world. It also provided us with an oppportunity to once again meet the fabulous Colin Dunn and try some spectacular Diageo Special Releases including the legendary Port Ellen!
