The Whisky & Spirits Festival Amsterdam in transition to the year 2020...

After the first Lustrum last year of our whisky & spirits festival, we plan to make the next edition of The Spirit of Amsterdam a major international event. The distilleries, brand owners and Dutch whisky importers and traders with their brands are then positioned very clearly to the public! However, this brings so much time and effort with it that we have decided to organize the 6th edition of The Spirit of Amsterdam in March 2020 at a new, larger and more suitable location in the centre of Amsterdam. This location can be easily reached and meets excellent our ambitious criteria for both exhibitors and visitors excellent. Everyone will be informed about the further developments of this big event on the homepage of our website. The whole team of the Spirit Whisky Events wishes you all a very Happy New Year in good health, happiness and prosperity. And do not forget: Slainte Mhath ...!
Ticket sales for The Spirit of Amsterdam next year starts in October 2019.

The Spirit Whisky Canal Cruise

Every year in December, The Spirit Whisky Events organises the now traditional whisky cruises through the canals of Amsterdam. On a Saturday evening in mid-December there are two flights of one and a half hours each under the backdrop of the Amsterdam Light Festival. A beautiful setting to experience such a romantic whisky cruise.

Watch this video “Whisky en Romantiek” from one of our whisky cruises.

On each cruise six beautiful (malt) whiskies are tasted with expert explanations from a professional whisky ambassador. The whisky & food pairing during the cruise is provided each year by Reypenaer Kaas with snacks that match the taste of the whiskies.
