The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show 2012

The Whisky Show 1

It’s competition time here once again at EWB Towers! The Whisky Exchange are hosting their annual Whisky Show at Vinopolis in London on 6th and 7th of October and those generous folks at TWE have given us a pair of tickets to give to you, our loyal readers. The Whisky Show promises to be another cracker of an event with over 80 exhibitors showcasing their whisky. Everyone from big brands to small independent bottlers will be present giving you a taste-bud-tickling choice of Scotch, Irish, Japanese, Indian and American whisk(e)y to sample. There will be Q&A sessions with those who create some of your favourite drams, masterclasses in matching whisky with food and a whisky cocktail bar run by the charismatic Ryan Chetiyawardana.

If this sounds like your thing (and let’s be honest, how can it not be?!) then all you have to do to be in with a shout of winning a pair of tickets for the Sunday session is to comment below and tell us how much you love The Whisky Exchange. The competition will close at 5pm on Wednesday September 26th and all the usual T&Cs apply (whatever they are…) but just bear one thing in mind – you must be able to make your own way to London on October 7th.

Good luck folks!



  1. My love is shown by being first here… I love the Whisky Exchange (almost as much as my favourite Edinburgh based whisky blog)

  2. I love the whisky exchange, my favourite (my wife’s least favourite) shop to browse while visiting London.

  3. Love is a beautiful thing & something I reserve for my family and friends. What I feel for the Whisky Exchange is smörgåsbord of different emotions.

    First of all I respect them (knowledgeable & dedicated people with integrity). Secondly, I am somewhat in awe of their fantastic stock. Thirdly I admire the fact that they set up events to get the customers to meet the producers. And finally, I fear the damage to my wallet each time I set foot on their premises.

  4. I love the Whiskey exchange because it’s a “normal” shop that you can go in and talk of smokey tones and the taste of peat bogs without being looked at like you’ve just escaped from somewhere!!

  5. I love the Whisky Exchange as much as a bottle of Lagavulin, and that my friends is love.


  6. I love the whisky exchange,
    probably more than I should
    and certainly more than is good
    for my health!!
    Of these facts, I’m fully aware
    and were I to care, then love it would not be :-)

  7. I love the Whisky Exchange because it is simply the best place to buy whisky on-line and not to mention the friendly unassuming experience of shopping in-store. You know you’re getting good advice, an honest review and never ripped off. There you have it, nothing clever, just the honest truth.

  8. Love is a serious word. And yet, how else to describe the lifting of spirits (pun vaguely intended) that one experiences when first catching sight of the Whisky Exchange shop in Vinopolis? The unashamed beauty of the wonderfully curated and categorised collection of bottles is truly something to behold. A beautiful library of whisky, if you will. I love it.

  9. How do I love the Whiskey Exchange? Let me count the ways:
    I love the Whiskey Exchange to the depth and breadth and height of your glass.
    My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight of your whisky.
    I love the Whiskey Exchange to the level of everyday’s dram;
    I love the Whiskey Exchange freely, as men strive for the Right blend;
    I love the Whiskey Exchange purely, as they turn from lesser shops.

  10. I love TWE because they epitomise Trustwothy Winning Excellence.

  11. I don’t love TWE, I have a lust for it. Going into the shop gives me such excitement I have had a restraining order so I have to lurk on the website at 2am eyes glued to the changing stock and my ‘old favorites’. But perhaps yes, under the lust there is love too, I would never look at another for I am a faithful whisky customer.

    I do love that I have never paid to go to the Whisky Show – and don’t intend to start now, Otherwise my world record attempt of four years running (not part of trade) will not be achieved. In Olympics year who can deny me that?

    On a more serious note, anyone spelling ‘The Whisky Exchange’ as ‘The Whiskey Exchange’ should be disqualified… that basically shouts out that they mock TWE.

    (also I love Speciality Drinks! And the Edinburgh Whisky Blog ever since the tirade against Diagio – loved it)

  12. I have very fond memories of TWE show.

    In 2009 I got the 11pm night bus from Aberdeen and arrived at London Victoria at about 9.30am. I spent the day with friends in London and then had a fantastic time at the show in the evening. I left the whisky show and went straight to the bus station and got the 11pm night bus back to Aberdeen. It was a brilliant and spontaneous trip and I would LOVE to do it again!

  13. I love The Whisky Exchange because they stock all of my favourite whiskies, give me the opportunity to sample new releases and some lovely, knowledgable, whisky loving people work there, who have always gone out of their way to assist me.

  14. I love The Whisky Exchange for the drams, and Ardbeg for the sexy ladies they bring to the show :P

    TWE are my Rosebank dealer and long may it continue!

  15. I love The Whisky Exchange even more than Gerry’s!

  16. The competition has now closed and the winner will be notified by email shortly – thank you to everyone who took part and shared their love for TWE!

    Keep an eye on you inboxes!
