Reading Whiskey Affair Festival 2023
For fans of scotch, bourbon, whiskey or cocktails
Sat 25 Nov, 13:00 & 18:00
Do you enjoy whiskey? Would you like to discover more about it, but don't know where to start? Do you like music? Do you like fun?
The Whiskey Affair is for you if you answered 'Yes!' to any of these questions. We are returning to The Great Hall in Reading and delighted to be coming back.
Upon arrival you will be handed your Whiskey Affair glass (you can keep this!) and a brochure packed full of information on the brands - a good reference point for you to see which your new favourites will be. There will be free access to our special app too, where you can find all the brochure information, vote on your favourite brands and get links to our retail partners.
You will need drinks tokens to buy the whisk(e)y which will be available at the entrance table. These are sold in cards of five for £20 - you are welcome to share a card between however many people you like, there are no restrictions. 95% of the brands are one token each but we are lucky enough to have some really rare bottles which are priced at two tokens, and these are clearly marked before you want to sample.
Throughout the event there will be live entertainment; whiskey experts on hand to chat to; samples from showcasing brands; food available to buy and lots of like-minded people to mingle with. We have a photo booth for you to let your hair down and all photos are free of charge to take home with you as a memento.
Live music sets will be there to entertain you and our photobooth will be there too. Can't wait!
