After the success (i hope !) of our adventure behind the table at Newcastle , Ashok asked us if we would do 3 of The Whisky Lounges other festivals so here is our second session behind the table…….
The Liverpool Festival is our second venue , we headed off south at the crack of dawn , there is only one problem heading that way at the moment , Roadworks ! They are upgrading part of the A1 into a motorway and making part of the M62 into a “Super Motorway” (whatever that is….) , after a stop off for Breakie we arrived at Liverpool in plenty of time to set up . The Venue was a bit of a strange one , The Crypt Hall of the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral , The Cathedral is known locally as “Paddys Wigwam”…..
Don’t know where they got that from……
I have to say the Crypt is a pretty impressive place to hold a whisky Festival……
The Calm before the storm !
So we set up our little table and waited for the masses , this time we meant business , we had 2 Banners !
We had the same lineup of drams as Newcastle……
- Amrut Single Malt 46%
- Amrut Peated Single Malt 46%
- Amrut Single Malt Cask Strength 61.8%
- Amrut Fusion 50%
- Amrut Intermediate Sherry Matured 57.1%
- Amrut Single Cask – Bourbon #3446 62.8% (White Token Dram)
- Amrut Single Cask – Port Pipe Peated #2714 (Black Token Dram)
The two most popular drams of the day were the Sherry and the Fusion , but we did set a new record for ourselves with the Black drams , we got up to 8 ! We still trailed a long way behind a certain Mr Dunn but we’re getting there !
It’s amazing how many people have never heard of Amrut but they certainly have now and a lot of people are certainly impressed with the Quality ! After 5 hectic hours We headed off to a hotel to lie down in a darkened room and look forward to the next one !
