“New Year, New Me!?” (Probably not, we’ll just do what we did- and better)

Hello! And a merry new year and all that jazz. We’re excited to be back on all things whiskey after the holidays, having spent the period sampling a few of our favourites repeatedly to drown out grandma’s requests for ‘Bing Crosby Sings Christmas’ for the third time in an afternoon. We’re stepping up the frequency of the Whiskey Affair Festival … Read More

Southampton review : a stormy November night

        Well, the weather outside was frightful – but thankfully, Southampton was delightful (and we think Sinatra would agree.)  We’re a week late with this update, yes – apologies for the delay but the matter of a small hand operation rendered typing a mere pipedream last week.  This week though, we’re back in action and as well … Read More

The Whiskey Affair: Uber-Responsible

We love to see you all enjoying our Whiskey. It’s what gets us up in the morning (along with a strong cuppa – milk and two, if you’re making) and allows us to put in the passionate hard work that we do. We’re also aware that a few people might like to come and sample as many of the whiskeys … Read More

Reading: the home of the sweet tooth and our busiest events yet!

We descended on Reading on Saturday for the first time and were excited to bring our festival to the most lavish backdrop yet – The Great Hall in Reading University. Walking in to the venue made many a jaw drop throughout the sessions with staff and attendees alike, we can’t wait to return next year now that we’ve adopted it … Read More

Wishky, You Were Here!

As The Whiskey Affair continues to grow, one of the most exciting parts for us is the opportunity to find out about, and team up with, others who have been seduced by the lure of the (usually) amber nectar.   One of the most exciting new discoveries for us has been the fine folks at Wishky ( and after a … Read More

Focus on: Paul John Whisky and ‘our Shilton’

Shilton is one of our regular brand representatives at the events.  We invited him to the Brighton event and not only loved the whisky, but the man behind the introductions, so we kept asking him back!  An excellent ambassador for the Paul John brand and a wealth of knowledge, delivered in style, we thought we’d pick his brains a little … Read More
