Is Whisky Live Sydney Back? I hope so.

Is Whisky Live Sydney back for good and better? An email this morning by the WL crew say yes. But have we seen all this before, early date releases, promises of what to come and then all but fades away? Yes we have but this time it might just be different as tickets also go on sale this Wed 21st November 2012 a good 9 months in advance.

Reports from members that did attend (though failed to post about it for the rest of us) indicate 2012 was a really good time and packed to the walls with people and whisky. Indications the food was well and truly up to scratch and management was on top of it all (unlike the previous years we had attended).

The 2013 Sydney event will see itself being hosted at the Paddington Town Hall, Sydney City, with 2 nights scheduled for the event being 2nd and 3rd of August 2013.

Currently the early bird email indicates tickets include the whisky tasting (of course), food, whisky cocktails, a Glencairn Crystal whisky glass (hopefully they really do mean true crystal this time which would be nice).

So from all indication Whisky Live Sydney management here in Australia looks like it is starting to get up to scratch with what the Official Whisky Live World site promises events are supposed to be.

Current Whisky Live Sydney release info is:
Dates – Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd August 2013
Venue – Paddington Town Hall
Tickets on sale: – Wednesday 21st November 2012
Cost – $95 per person
Website – Whisky Live Sydney

If anything keep an eye on the Whisky Live Sydney facebook page for updates if you do not plan to buy tickets early incase they begin to sell out. Hopefully the facebook page will also be managed better than in the last debacles which made me unlike it a year ago.

Ok yes I am extremely cynical and did not attend this years event needing a reprieve from the oh so poorly staged event previous and rightly so I feel for the price paid and the distance travelled. Next year I think it is time to get my boots on and see what it is like.

Keep in mind Whisky Live will also see events in Perth, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane as well so it is not just local. I cannot comment though on what the dates are for these other city events as I do not have info sorry.

For D.T.W.C. members that did attend this years event it would be nice to get a review up and some photos as there is less than scant information posted by others here in Aus about these events.

Maybe see you there...
