Master Classes – Whisky Live

​2019 WHISKY LIVE MANILA MASTER CLASSES

Ever wanted to learn a bit more about Whisky you are drinking?

Your chance to learn from the masters is here. One of the most unique parts about Whisky Live Manila is the opportunity to meet, engage, ask questions and learn from the Whisky Masters of different distilleries.

We call it Masterclasses and it's a unique, private setting for 15-20 participants where they can learn from the masters and really get to know more about whatever it is they are drinking.

It is a 45-60 minute class of intense learning, questioning and interacting with some of the World's most revered Whisky Masters.

Each class will offer tasting from Rare, Older, Limited Bottlings not normally offered to the general public. Each class is slightly different. Some will focus on just one brand or expression, while others will dedicate the time to comparing international flavors experienced only through whisky. The hosts of these events will be the brand ambassadors, master distillers, leading experts or Whisky Magazine writers.

Master Classes are open to newcomers, experienced whisky drinkers or anyone that has interest in an event that is the first of its kind to be held in Manila. Experience an unforgettable event at Whisky Live Manila 2019!
