This festival saw one of our resident brand ambassadors take the helm and deliver his first masterclass for us.  …

Introducing a new partnership with The Craft Whisky Club

Do you know what’s better than whiskey? (Stick with us here…!) Arguably, sharing whiskey with other people and making friends that will be there throughout those hours of the day when you can’t be drinking whiskey, that’s what. With that in mind, we’ve made a new friend – and we think you’ll like them because we’ve all got tons in …

Glorious Guildford: all the lowdown is here!

Haslemere Hall hosts one hell of a hoopla

Haslemere Hall was another new venue for us, and we loved it so much that we re-booked for next year before the first session was over!  We had new staff on board this event and a new brand showcasing with us (more on them later), so there were new faces everywhere to mingle with- but we’d not all seen each …

We’re stepping up the frequency of the Whiskey Affair Festival …
