With our new New Zealand importer and distributor -hi I.Q. distribution – Alex attended the excellent Dram Fest organised by Michael from Whisky Galore!
Kicking off with a bit of a party on Friday night then manning the barricades from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. Alex has attended many whisky festivals and tastings but none that have been quite so friendly which he thinks, fair to say reflected the people he met throughout New Zealand. Everyone who attended was both knowledgeable and friendly and really up to try the whiskies. It was also great to catch up with many old friends in the whisky business.
The odd ones out as usual wearing jeans and Sheep Dip T shirts when all of the other exhibitors were dressed in kilts and tartan trews it looked like an explosion of Rob Roys next year he might remember to pack his!! Alex was given a very interesting arm stocking which makes him look heavily tattooed and frightening at least a few of the exhibitors were genuinely shocked ! He’s thinking of getting the real thing for next year .
