The fourth annual regional Whisky Fair will be held at the Plaza Event Centar in Zagreb over 9-10 February. Over two days (the event falls on a weekend: hurrah!) visitors can taste from over 60 international whisky brands: prepare to get slowly sozzled from all free samples. Drinks from Scotland, Ireland, Canada and the US will be on offer, and there will be a special VIP vault containing brands that aren’t out in Croatia yet.
There will be plenty of whisky-related chat too, on subjects such as Kavalan whisky from Taiwan and on the finer points of sherry. Expect appearances from brands such as Glenmorangie, Chivas, Ballantine’s, Jameson, Glenlivet, Johnnie Walker, Lagavulin, Togouchi, Grant’s, Glenfiddich, Tullamore Dew, Kavalan, The Famous Grouse, Jack Daniel’s, The Macallan, Laphroaig and Ardmore. Whether you drink it neat, on the rocks, single-malt or triple-distilled, you'd better line your stomach before this one.
