About The Whisky Show: Old & Rare

The World's Greatest Whisky Bar: For One Weekend Only
The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show: Old & Rare celebrates the world of fine, rare and antique single malts and spirits, offering attendees the chance to try unique, unrepeatable drams and to forge drinking experiences and memories to last a lifetime.

How Does It Work?
Our show works like the world's biggest whisky bar – all the bottles are open and available to buy by the 1cl taster. Drams will vary in price depending on the value of the bottle, and may cost from a few pounds up to more than £100 for truly stellar, one-of-a-kind antique malts. Our exhibitors will be offering a wide selection of old-style drams at different price levels. Filling sample bottles to take away is permitted but must be agreed upon by the exhibitor, who retains the right to refuse sale of samples.

About The Show
The way whisky has been produced over the decades has changed dramatically and the resulting flavour of Scotch whisky has reflected these changes. The Whisky Show: Old & Rare is all about discovering and celebrating these older styles and occasionally forgotten, characteristics from whisky’s illustrious past. From dedicated tasting masterclasses to one-on-one encounters with some of the world’s most knowledgeable collectors, specialists, bar owners and independent bottlers, there’s never been a better place or opportunity to learn about and enjoy these incredible old bottlings.

Unlike the majority of other whisky festivals, The Whisky Show: Old & Rare’s exhibitors are almost exclusively independent companies and collectors from the world of whisky. You’ll find some of the world’s best whisky bars, shops, auctions and collectors all represented at this show. This is a place where the focus is very much on the people and the product first and foremost.

The ticket price includes entry to the event and a sit-down buffet meal during the event.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Whisky Show: Old & Rare are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
