An international whisky festival
The Spirit of Amsterdam is an international whisky festival that presents over 500 different types of whisky by renowned international importers and distilleries. Combined with whisky-related stories, music, food and lifestyle, the festival introduces visitors to whisky in all its forms and interpretations. In three-hour sessions, you can taste all the featured beverages and discuss them with professionals to increase your whisky wisdom.
The Spirit of Amsterdam programme
There are two main sessions on March 16:
- Afternoon session: 1pm to 5pm
- Evening session: 7pm to 11pm
Upon entry to the festival, you will be presented with a Glencairn glass engraved with The Spirit of Amsterdam logo. This glass allows you to familiarise yourself with the presented whiskies in small sips, also known as "drams". The more exclusive types of whisky may require a fee of one or more "AmsterDrams", the festival’s local currency, that represents one euro.
