Speaking of Simply Whisky events, writer Tim Forbes said: "Simon and Franchi of Simply Whisky rip up the rulebook with a wild-eyed, gleeful anarchic joy, and one can’t help but be swept along.

"Everything they do is different, even when it’s the same. Simply Whisky events are exciting, it’s that simple"
