Wild Whisky Weekend

9 October 2011

I promised my good friend Hans Henrik Hansen that I would attend his small festival in Denmark this month. It’s called Wild Whisky Weekend and every October, Hans successfully organises this weekend festival at his hotel. Hans is also owner of the biggest collection of Glenfiddich in the world.

Part of the weekend festivities is visiting Hans’ house and the Glenfiddich collection. Everyone was absolutely amazed by the number of rooms which are all full of different bottles of the world`s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky.

Towards the end of the month, I arrived in Calgary from Scotland and was on stage at the Willow Park store delivering a tasting for invited guests. Willow Park is a huge liquor store and Glenfiddich has bottled four different vintages for the outlet such is its importance in Canada. If you’ve ever been to Calgary, you’ll see a vibrant city in the middle of prairie land and a lot of the very big energy companies have their main offices there. Well worth a visit and a great round-off for the month.
