The Danish Whiskyfair

Next weekend is the danish whiskyfair

It's a massive 10 hour event in Fredericia

Here is a link to the tasting catalogue just published

The Danish Whisky Fair

Some pours will be free, but most will cost a price, all is listed in the above catalogue

A lot of the danish importers will be present as well as a lot of the new small distilleries: Trolden, Nyborg(Ørbæk), Braunstein and Stauning. There is Cafe/restaurants inside and there is also a few non whisky stands if you need a little break.

I will be helping pouring bourbons and a rye from Willet/KBD, which is a Kentucky independent bottler/distiller from Bardstown. Come and say hello. First time, as far as I know, that I see the Willet bottlings in Denmark and if it's anywhere near the bottlings I have tasted in US and Limburg we are in for a treat.

There are a lot of exciting stands. Here is what I think are the most exciting offers: Jack Wieber, Diageo has the new Talisker Storm. MACY has a big range of bourbons from Buffalo Trace. They also have some fantastic offerings from Tomatin and BenRiach

A huge list of independent bottlers will be present at various stands: Wilson & Morga, Douglas Laing, SMWS, Duncan Taylor, Scott's and AD Rattray.  The various stands will also have an extensive number of rums and there will be a few speciality beers present as well. I think the number of rums is closing in on the whiskies these days

Here is a few photos from last years fair. Don't get too scared :-)
