Whisky tasting in The Hague
Whisky connoisseurs won’t want to miss this edition of this annually occurring festival. Each year, the festival provides a unique opportunity to sample a wide variety of whiskeys produced by various distilleries in Scotland, Ireland and around the world.
Ticket entry includes unlimited tastings, a whisky tumbler, and a catalogue of the festival with tasting notes. For an extra fee, visitors can also enjoy a tour of The Hague on a special sightseeing tram while sampling a few whiskeys!
A whiskey event of refined discernment
Quite a refined event, there is no side entertainment, but rather a full day with the focus remaining solely on the drink. With workshops, tastings and master-classes addressing issues from whisky food pairings to collectors editions, there is something for every level of whisky drinker.
Learn how to discern a fine Scotch from a Canadian Rye while talking, tasting and touring in the beautiful Grote Kerk! The sheer variety and quality is more than you're likely to find in any bar in the Netherlands.
