210.000 bottles milestone release

16 nov 2022 12:46 pm

A new release for the 210.000 bottles milestone. We just passed the 210.000 registered bottles, which calls for a new whisky. We selected an M&H pomegranate wine cask, which matured at the dead sea (the lowest point on earth). It is a huge flavor bomb. However, with only 255 bottles available, you should not wait too long.

Ruadh Maor - For the members of Whiskybase

04 apr 2022 12:16 pm

Selected a few months ago because we think it will appeal to a group of whisky drinkers. If you are looking for a nice drinking whisky: Ruadh Maor from Berry Bro's & Rudd for the Members of Whiskybase. A peated Glenturret matured in a sherry butt, not your average lemonade and a pleasant surprise. Limited to 120 bottles, we are not sure where the rest of the contents went. This bottle is now available in our shop.

Whiskybase Gathering 2021 - canceled

30 jul 2021 3:52 pm

The Whiskybase Gathering 2021 canceled

With so many (Whisky)events canceled this year, we were extremely dedicated to follow through with our Whiskybase festival (The Gathering 2021). Unfortunately, at this point, we have to inform you that the Whiskybase Gathering 2021 will be canceled as well. 

We believe that the international atmosphere, and the small(er) exhibitors from all parts of the world, are key factors for our whisky event. The Gathering is a place to meet and have a dram with fellow whisky-geeks, connoisseurs, and experts, in a laid-back setting. Due to the ever-changing regulations and unclarity about the situation in October we cannot guarantee this experience. This is why we decided to cancel this event.  

If you still had a ticket for the 2020 Whiskybase Gathering, and chose to swap that ticket for a 2021 Whiskybase Gathering ticket, you've just received an e-mail. Please read this mail carefully.

Unfortunately, we don't have a date for the 2022 Gathering yet. We hope to have a confirmed date as soon as possible. We will communicate this with you as soon as we have it.

Stay safe, and we hope to see you in 2022.

All the best!
