Event registrations for World Whisky Day 2016 are now open.
Registrations across the globe will be published on World Whisky Day’s brand new website as the organisers aim to make this year’s celebration on May 21 the biggest yet.
Last year, World Whisky Day was toasted on every continent around the world. Even in Antarctica, researchers from the Australian Antarctic Division held celebratory whisky tasting sessions just over 9,500 miles from World Whisky Day’s HQ.
Publisher of Hot Rum Cow and organiser of World Whisky Day, Fraser Allen, said: “To see the world raise a dram for World Whisky Day last May was incredible. We want to make this year’s celebration bigger than ever before, and by hosting your own event you’ll be helping to make this a reality.”
World Whisky Day is all about people getting together and toasting one of life’s great pleasures. Suggested events range from a quiet back garden dram to a full-blown carnival.
Registrations are found at www.worldwhiskyday.com, where there is also a list of current events taking place around the world - three are already registered in Edinburgh.
World Whisky Day has also launched a campaign with charity partner Just a Drop in a bid to raise at least £15,000 for the construction of a sand dam for a community of 4,349 in Kalima South, Kenya – people for whom water really does mean life.
