Get Your Whisky On

Get Your Whisky On

Calling all whisky lovers, whisky novices, people who spell whisky whiskey* -Celebrate World Whisky Day on Saturday, 17 May 2014!

Whisky in Gaelic reads ‘uisge beathe’, which translates as ‘water of life’. World Whisky Day is about celebrating the water of life, and making whisky fun and enjoyable. With events taking place in 36 countries across the globe, this is the first time it has truly been celebrated in New Zealand.

All you need is a bottle of whisky to share with your friends, this extends to any kind of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world, it’s completely up to preference, you just need to find the right one for you.

Whisky drinking can be very subjective, as Frankie Walker Spirits Ambassador at Lion explains: “There’s no right or wrong way to drink whisky, it can be enjoyed on its own, a little more mellowed by adding some water to it, mixed in a cocktail, paired with food, or served on ice. I personally enjoy whisky at room temperature as it brings out the maximum expression of flavour, which I love.”

If you’ve never tried whisky, this is the day to discover how much there is to love about it.

Frankie continues: “Whisky to me is like wine, when people say they don’t like it I believe they just haven’t found the right one yet. There’s an extraordinary variety out there and I would encourage people to taste as many as they can. Go to the best bar you know and have the barmen do a tasting for you, or find the most passionate member of staff at your local liquor store; they will show you the way. Whisky preference is based on many different things; If I wanted to help you find a perfect whisky, I’d think about what you like eating, what beers or wines you like, and how adventurous you are. I guarantee there’s one out there that you'll fall in love with.”

Lion’s whisky portfolio includes: Glenfiddich, Balvenie, Johnnie Walker, Talisker, Glenkinchie, Oban, Dimple, Lagavulin, Craggamore, Dalwhinnie, Caol Ila, Clynelish, Glen Elgin, Grants, Bushmills and Crown Royal.

World Whisky Day encourages everyone to enjoy whisky responsibly.

* To ‘e’ or not to ‘e’, that’s the question. When it comes to spelling, only refer to Scottish / Scotch whisky without the ‘e’…if its origins are rooted elsewhere, opt for ‘whiskey’.
