Dramnation! Whisky Live Takes A Dive.


Whisky Live Sydney takes a dive and is announced as being postponed until next year 2012. With the ambiguous date changes and lack of information through the last 12 months it does not come as a surprise at all (yes I am being heavily critical and for good reason).

Pretty disappointing overall to be leaving such an announcement so late in the year especially as this is basically the biggest whisky event Australia gets to see. Hopefully someone will jump on the wagon, see the need and fill the need to organise something independent and clearly with focus.

The official line sent out on email 7 July 2011 1:14:19 PM is as follows:

<--

We wish to advise that Whisky Live Sydney has been postponed to next year.

The decision has been made with a number of factors in play, including the roll out of multiple city events in 2012.

The next Whisky Live Sydney is likely to be held in June 2012.

We will keep you informed via news emails of the progress.

Regards,
Whisky Live Australia

Considering they have virtually never keep anyone posted on what has been happening since the last event (email or facebook), and it took them a good 8 months just to publish a few photos from 2010, let us hope to see a better effort all round with a years hiatus. In the meantime maybe we need to start our own event and call it 'Dramnation!'.

Since Whisky Live has just saved you $80, pocket the cash and save it for Dramcember and splash out on something you have never had before.
