What is World Whisky Day?


World Whisky Day invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. Events are taking place all over the globe. If you can’t find an event happening near you why not host your own World Whisky day event? All you need is a bottle of whisky to share with your friends. World Whisky day celebrates all types of whisky/whiskey and encourages everyone to enjoy whisky responsibly.

World Whisky Day is all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive. You can drink it however you enjoy it (ice, water, mixer – whatever works for you). We want to be all inclusive and that means any kind of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world.

How can I take part?

You can find a World Whisky Day event happening near you and go along to taste some wonderful whiskies and meet loads of other fun people. There are loads of events happening all over the world. Some events are free and some are ticketed. Better stilll, you can organise and register your own!

But what if I’ve never tried whisky before?

Then you are in the right place. We want to give people the chance to try whisky who might not normally drink it at any other time of the year. We have lots of information about the history and how whisky is made coming soon on this site. But the best thing is for you to get along to a World Whisky Day event and try out a dram for yourself. We hope you enjoy it.

But I don’t think I would enjoy whisky neat?

Well, why not try a whisky cocktail? There are many fantastic whisky cocktails that you could try. Check out our blog for some of our favourites that you can try at home or get your favourite bar to make for you on World Whisky Day.

Why I can’t find an event near me?

Perhaps no one has registered an event yet in your town/city. It would be great if you host your own World Whisky Day event. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Just invite your friends and tell them to bring along some whisky. It’s FREE to register your event. Click here to register your event – it will only take a minute.

I own a bar/shop/restaurant/club can I host an event?

Yes of course. We’d love you to host a World Whisky Day event. It’s FREE to register your event and up to you what you want to do.

Who can I contact for media enquiries?

We would be delighted to speak to you about any kind of media enquiry.

For media or general enquiries please contact info@worldwhiskyday.com
