Whiskymax on tour.
To stay on track, Whiskymax is attending approximately 10 fairs per year. Top events, like the Interwhisky in Frankfurt, are included. Approximately 8.500 visitors look, marvel and taste each year at exclusive locations in Frankfurt . Interesting presentations regarding "high-proof" subjects are always offered in addition to the exhibition. Extraordinary tastings, lasting up to 1 ½ hours, and "Grand-Master-Classes" for the experienced Whisky Connoisseur round out the event for the international audience.
Change of location:
In early summer each year we have a „Festival of Senses” in Limburg/ Lahn - the popular and well-known Whisky Fair. Friends of Scottish and Irish Whiskies are invited to taste more than 2.000 different products. Musical goodies like Scottish and Irish Folk artists exude a special air. Additionally you find art-, book-, and photo-presentations.
And in the South? In Nürnberg a special meeting place waits for Whisky supporters: “The Village”. This old Frankonian city was the venue that, besides Whiskymax, over 50 importers and distilleries used, to show what they are standing for. 16.000 visitors were able to explore approx. 800 different Whiskies coming from 12 countries. Tastings together with the Higland-Circle Nürnberg and “Cooking-Shows” with Chris Pepper, a well-known “Whisky-Cook, were the perfect round off of the offered program.
Munich loves Whisky, too: In October 2014 the “Whiskey and Lifestyle Days” opened their gates for the first time and admitted visitors into the former Royal Bavarian Riding Hall for three days. Experts as well as newcomers found an ideal stage to exchange experiences. Even visitors from abroad could be found, due to the sheer dimensions of the happening. Tastings offered absolute rarities, at a „Fair bar“ one could experience extraordinary sensations of taste. Everybody involved hopes that the extremely well visited event will take place again next year.
Coming to the North: The „Hanse Spirit“:
This fair opens its gates yearly at the beginning of the year on over 3.600qm. Numerous exhibitors offer Whisky, Rum, Cognac, Obstbrände, Gin, Liqueur and a lot more. Celebrities
of the North German bar scene can be found there. Taking place in hall A2 of the Hamburger fair halls, it has grown steadily during the last years and advanced to being a “must-go” event.
Selection of offered spirits will be even greater and multifarious at the upcoming fair. More than 1.000 different bottles comprising all quality levels. Look forward to many seminars in smaller groups with internationally acknowledged consultants.
Travel to our capital and explore the „Köpenicker Whiskyfest“, taking place in the historic center of Köpenick on the grounds of “Freiheit 15”. Besides some interesting standard bottlings this Whisky Event offered the possibility to taste Whiskies of independent bottlers including our Spirit & Cask range.
One of the most significant events in Germany is, for sure, the fair ProWein in Düsseldorf each March. Open only for trade visitors it attracts each year important decision makers from the purchasing area. The variety is unbeatable: Classics beside exotics, cask samples, aperitifs beside digestifs. The offered spirits reflect the variety of the winegrowers.
Leaving land to hit water: Whiskyship Zürich – an occasion with tradition. It already celebrated its sixteenth birthday.

Taking place on five ships, the festival is dedicated to the legendary art of Whisky making and all corresponding items and services, e.g. special Whisky-journeys, literature and simply everything concerning “Whisky Culture” and the countries it is coming from.
