Soweto 2014

The FNB Whisky Live Showroom in Soweto will take place at the Walter Sisulu Hall from 15-17 August, in a new, boutique-style event that offers the city’s whisky connoisseurs a rare opportunity to taste the world’s finest whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, South Africa and the United States. “We have changed the format of the event from the larger Festival environment seen in Soweto in 2013 to a more intimate setting that is wonderfully suited to networking with business associates, or sharing whisky tasting experiences with great friends,” says Emily Stockden, chief operating officer of the FNB Whisky Live Festival. “This more intimate setting means that tickets are limited, and we urge whisky lovers, and those who are curious about this wonderful spirit, to book well in advance on www.whiskylivefestival.co.za to make sure that they don’t miss out. There are tickets available at The Soweto Hotel for those who don’t wish to purchase online”, she adds. The event will showcase some of the world’s finest whiskies, including Kavalan, The Glenlivet, Bains Cape Mountain Whisky, Balblair, The Balvenie and Glenfiddich among others, making it possible for fans and newcomers of the precious dram to sample and purchase their favourite whiskies in an exclusive setting. Tickets cost R150 each at www.whiskylivefestival.co.za or Facebook/FNBWhiskyLiveFestival, and R170 at the door. All ticket prices include a complimentary tasting glass, a 2014 SA Whisky Handbook, a 500ml bottle of Valpré Spring Water, 15 tasting vouchers, and a 10% discount off purchases made at the Showroom’s Whisky Shop, or on www.whiskyshopsa.co.za. Follow @WhiskyLiveSA on Twitter, ‘like’ the FNB Whisky Live Festival Facebook page, or check www.whiskylivefestival.co.za for regular updates about the events. The FNB Whisky Live Showroom promotes responsible drinking. No persons under the age of 18 years will be allowed into the Showrooms. Designated driver tickets are also available at R95 per ticket. Part of the ticket proceeds will be donated to The Foundation for Alcohol Related Research (FARR).   Contacts: Davina Malan, Tribeca Public Relations: davinam@tribecapr.co.za (011) 2085533 Adelaide Ncube, Tribeca Public Relations: adelaiden@tribecapr.co.za (011) 2085540
