I am very delighted and very pleased to have attended the first whisky base gathering in Rotterdam. Being the first event, my compliments to the crew and Menno ! It was 100% fun :-)

My wife and I we really enjoyed the Whiskybase Gathering, especially that there was so much space and more places to sit than on any other Whisky festival that we ever visited before.

We certainly come again ...

I totally disagree with JollyRoger, who clearly has no clue to what the costs are of such a great event.

Great job!!
Next time I will certainly attend.

JollyRoger Review note

The entrance fee of EUR 22,50 (excl 5 coins) is rather high if you consider that 99% of the whiskies were not free. EUR 10 sounds more reasonable. Or just conform to existing festivals.
The ambiance was acceptable with some music, lots of chairs and good light to view the drams. But the ducts and conrete felt like a walk under some turn pike after all, and travelling there and back was horrible.
Extra minus point: one really large stand was ridiculously expensive with not really interesting drams - waste of time. I consider this a huge reduction in selection, even though there were two others that were good.
Pluspoint: excellent cheese plate available for EUR 5 and good sausage plate for EUR 5.
Pluspoint: the BenRiach / GlenDronach representatives were the best with good free tastings. Met these guys before in Posthoornkerk and Zuiderkerk.
I will not go to the Whiskybase Gathering again.
