Calling all Capetonians – if you would love to win a set of 4 general access tickets to the highly anticipated Whisky & Gin Live valued at R 1120 – then make sure to enter at the bottom of this post!

I love that the team from Whisky Live have not only added Gin to the mix, but they are also making Whisky drinking cool for just about anyone and this year by making their events more accessible with bigger social areas, trendy food trucks, live entertainment from various performers throughout the night, with premium and popular whisky and, for the first time, gin exhibitors making a strong appearance at these events.

“The perception that the whisky market is dominated by an older profile is no longer relevant,” says Whisky Live CEO Ken Varejes. “South Africa’s whisky consumers are a healthy cross-section of ages and races but the most noticeable new sippers are young hip women who are wanting to explore their new attraction to whisky.”

Event organiser Michelle Kirby says internationally, women are featuring as strong whisky purchasers. “Forbes recently reported on two ladies, Becky Paskin and Georgie Bell, who just ahead of International Women’s Day, launched their own awareness campaign of female whisky drinkers in the States and the movement is growing to include younger consumers.”

I have a set of 4 general access tickets to the Cape Town event on 2nd, 3rd and 4th May at The Lookout to giveaway to one lucky reader, valued at R 1120.

Make sure to comment below and let me know where the event is being held, and also what your favourite whisky is! Competition closes 26th April 2019 and winner will be contacted via email.

Tickets are not transferrable and can not be exchanged for cash.
