Meet leading whiskey specialists who will introduce you to a delicious but delicately sparkling world of whisky already in mid April. It doesn’t matter if you are completely new to whisky or whether you are an avid whisky lover – this festival caters to everyone.
CONDITIONS TO ENTER THE CONTEST:
and you’re in for a game to win 2 tickets for the Whisky Fest Bratislava 2018, bottles of Jameson Caskmates & Chivas Regal Extra, and a set of 6 whisky glasses! The winner will be announced on Monday 9th April 2018 on our Facebook page and Facebook group.
Attend one of many masterclasses where whisky experts will guide you through tasting of their handpicked whiskies! Every year the organizers invite interesting guest speakers to organize a special masterclass for the visitors. This year the guest is Stano Vadrna – a world-class bartender from Slovakia.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT AT THE MASTERCLASS
It is necessary to reserve a place and pay in advance – it is possible to do so on this website. Some Masterclasses are for free, some have an entrance fee. If you fail to pay for the Masterclass within 14 days of your reservation, your reservation will be cancelled. Please reserve a place in advance even if the Masterclass is for free in order to secure a spot.
FICTIONAL CURRENCY DRAM
For most of the tastings, you will need to pay by a special fictional festival currency called Dram (1 Dram = 1 €). You can buy Drams at the cash desk and then use them to buy tasting samples at the stands. There is also a limited number of tastings free of charge (depending on individual exhibitors).
WHAT DOES THE TICKET INCLUDE?
Besides the entrance to the festival, you will also get your own Glencairn whisky tasting glass which you can keep as a souvenir, a pen and brochure with space for your notes. Although most whisky tastings have to be paid for with drams, your ticket entitles you to a limited amount of tastings for free (at least 10) – this is up to each exhibitor and the list of free tastings will be listed on the brochure. You can also enjoy a rich program with live music and bag pipes, eat delicious food and participate in a competition to win a bottle of whisky.
Make sure to mark your calendar for 12-13 April 2018 :)
