The Whisky Lounge Quiz Night - Independent Bottlers - YorkFestival
20 April 19:00 - 21:00
What's more fun than having a night out with your friends (or perhaps friends you haven't met yet) and coming together as a team to conqueur other, like-minded people in a good old-fashioned quiz?
Well, the only improvement we could see possible is the addition of some fine drams to taste while you're doing it!
So that's what we have done, to turn up the fun!
In what we will hope will become a regular fixture, we have put together a whisky quiz par excellence that will challenge and delight, with a few TWL prizes thrown in for the winning teams. Do not worry if you don't have a team yet - anybody coming along on their own will either be placed in a team, or can compete as an individual...
Whisky-wise, we will be gathering whiskies from some of the best-known bottlers, along with one or two you may not have come across before.
For those new to the term 'Independent Bottler', the term simply describes a company that buys casks of whisky from distillers - already mature or not - and bottles it under their own label. This means that the bottler is in charge of when it is bottled, and invariably leads to some very interesting results. It also means that the batches are generally a lot smaller, and in some cases will only be a single cask, which makes them all the more intriguing!
What you can be sure of is that there will be something for everyone as the bottlings we are choosing are rich and varied!
So, come along and give it a try. We think you'll have a cracking evening!
As always, these tasting events start around 7pm and finish around 9pm. They may be slightly shorter, or they may go on a little longer. We finish when you are ready to finish and we are very relaxed about that. However, if you need to get away sooner as you have a train to catch or similar, please let the host know so that they can make sure you sample all the whiskies in time!
