We had the privilege of hosting our second annual executive whisky tasting evening on the 18th of July 2017 at Moonshot Café in Menlyn. It is an exclusive event aimed at executives from both insurers and suppliers in the industry. We were glad to see a significant increase in participants this year, many who joined us last year as well.
Sean and Carl from The Whisky Rebellion in Johannesburg hosted once more the evening. Both have a wealth of whisky knowledge and add something unique and exciting in the form of their tasting experiences.
Our tasting on the evening was the Windows to the World, which introduced us to six whiskies from six different countries. All participants enjoyed the tasting. Whether you were a whisky connoisseur or novice, it did not matter. The guests were able to engage the hosts with interesting questions on the different whiskies being tasted. We even had blindfolds and fudge to spice things up!
It was not all about the tasting. The executives had the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues within the industry and made new contacts.
Overall it was a delightful evening, and we hope to see some of you at the next year’s event!
