FNB Whisky Live Showroom

FNB Whisky Live Showroom

While this website has its roots firmly planted in wine, the content and appreciation is definitely not limited to said precious liquid. We here at Incogvino do not discriminate between alcoholic beverages and especially not against whisky. Or whiskey. Whichever you prefer. With that in mind, it’s nearly time for the net FNB Whisky Live festival. These annual events are held in Cape Town, Durban, Nelspruit, Sandton and now also Soweto. To celebrate the upcoming FNB Whisky Live Showroom in Soweto, we’re giving away two sets of double tickets to two Incogvino winos (Whiskiers? Whiskos? Whiskocvinos?)

The 2014 FNB Whisky Live Showroom in Soweto will take place at the Walter Sisulu Hall from the 15th to the 17th of August. Moving to a slightly smaller venue than the 2013 event, this promises to be a bit more intimate a setting for whisky lovers, but also means tickets will be limited. To make sure you don’t miss out on this event you can a) enter our Incogvino Twitter competition (details below) or b) secure your place by booking online.

Attendees can look forward to an impressive line-up of international whiskies, including Glenlivet, Bains Mountain Whisky, Balblair and Glenfiddich, to name only a few of many. This event is a great one for anyone to attend, whether you’re a long-time connoisseur or if you’re just starting on our journey of whisky appreciation, it will be a great opportunity to learn, enjoy and indulge.

Tickets for the festival are R150 if you book online and R170 at the door (if there are any left!). Ticket prices include a complimentary tasting glass (of course, how else would you taste the marvellous offerings?), a 2014 SA Whisky Handbook (that will come in handy!), a 500ml bottle of Valpré Spring Water (the key to a good whisky festival is hydration…), 15 tasting vouchers (that’s a lot of whisky) and a bonus 10% discount on any purchases made at the Showroom’s Whisky Shop OR on the Whisky Shop website.
