New Whisky & Music Festival : Pure Festival, London

PureIf you’re in London this September (24,25th), and you love whisky and music (if you’re reading this blog, I’m sure you love whisky, and who doesn’t love music eh?) You should be aware of this lovely new Festival coming. Named Pure, and organized by the guys over at Connosr.com.

Pure aims to educate people on Whisky in a fun and informative way and the festival is a unique opportunity to sample a number of fantastic whiskies in a relaxed, informal setting.  Brown spirits are enjoying a huge renaissance in the UK from both male and females and there is a real demand to know more about the origins and the marked differences in different brands.

Whiskies on offer include esteemed single malts such as Ardbeg and AnCnoc and premium blends such as Whyte and Mackay.  Well respected whisky writer, Dominic Roskrow will also be on hand to give festival goers a chance to try some of the World Whisky Masters medal winners, featuring amazing and hard to find whiskies from around the world.

Music wise , the following artists will be on stage : The Raveonettes, James Yorkston, Smoke Fairies, Steve Mason, Electric Soft Parade, Charlie Waller and Kassidy.

Whisky sampling will take place with distillers leading Pure festival goers through their individual whiskies between 4pm and 7pm.  Festival goers will be able to move at their leisure from one distiller’s stand to another, sampling whichever whiskies they wish to taste as part of their ticket price.  Pure aims to educate people on Whisky in a fun and informative way and the festival is a unique opportunity to sample a number of fantastic whiskies in a relaxed, informal setting.  Brown spirits are enjoying a huge renaissance in the UK from both male and females and there is a real demand to know more about the origins and the marked differences in different brands.
