The Ultimate City Break Experience for Fans and Connoisseurs Alike
Paris, 23 June 2016 - From the 24 to 26 September, Paris’s uber-chic Cité de la Mode et du Design will welcome Whisky Live, home to some of the world’s finest whiskies and most creative mixologists. Visitors can tantalise their taste buds on the ultimate city break with exclusive tastings and inventive mixology creations, in three spaces dedicated to over 140 whiskies and spirits from over thirty countries.
In the words of Mark Twain, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whisky is barely enough”. He would certainly feel quite at home at Whisky Live, where visitors can nurture their inner whisky connoisseur at one of the 15 master classes, drool over the extensive rum and whisky selection in the Collector’s Room, or sample the very best of Paris’s bustling cocktail and street food scene on Cocktail Street*.
With over 8,000 visitors in attendance last year, Whisky Live 2016 is set to be even bigger, with the event placing Paris firmly on the map as Europe’s new home for whisky lovers and collectors!
Early-bird tickets are available for just €58.50 until the end of June, and a VIP day pass including exclusive pre-entry and tastings of prestigious whiskies and spirits costs €120.
