The whisky fabric is an amazing place. It is full of vibrant people and amazing conversations. Friendships start over a glass of whisky and lasts for many years. Friendships that transcends whisky. The opportunity to all meet up, happens only a few times a year. One of the biggest events of the year is the Annual Whisky and Spirits Live Festival in Sandton at the beginning of November and it is an event every one looks forward to. A chance for friends from all over South Africa to catch up over a glass (or 2) of whisky.

The second Sunday in May is traditionally celebrated as Mother’s Day in our country. Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family. It is seen as a celebration of motherhood, maternal bonds and the impact of mothers in society. Mostly a day where mom can relax a bit and the kids and significant other spoil her.
The highlight in the yearly whisky calendar is the Whisky Life Festival in Sandton. It is one of the biggest whisky shows in the world. The festival is about meeting up with old friends and making new whisky friends. The tasting variety is overwhelming. We try to taste only a few whiskies that we have not tried before. Last year, I walked into Bernard Gutman, a good friend, at the Glen Grant exhibition. Bernard took the time to introduce me to the Glen Grant Major’s Reserve. And that is where I spend quite a lot of time. I also tried the Glen Grant 10 yo and the 16 yo.
