In 2015, The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show moved to a new venue Old Billingsgate to the north of London Bridge. As ever, we offer a special premium tasting event in a venue of outstanding architectural interest.

For 2016, The Whisky Show will be staying true to our previous events, again focusing on each exhibitor’s premium whiskies, well above their standard drams. TWE Whisky Show is the whisky festival for connoisseurs and enthusiasts to experience the world’s finest drams in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
There are other whisky-tasting events around the world, such as Whisky Live Paris and WhiskyFest New York, but what sets apart The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show is our range of Dream Drams, an unprecedented collection of ultra-premium whiskies, some of which retail for thousands of pounds.
With a limited number of all-inclusive tickets, no voucher system and sessions lasting seven hours, visitors and exhibitors can relax and take their time to chat and interact in a more meaningful way than at more hectic, hurly-burly whisky fairs. This relaxed pace – not to mention the fine food also included in the ticket price – ensures a calm tempo and a pleasant, luxurious atmosphere.
The Whisky Exchange has a permanent retail shop 10 minutes walk from Old Billingsgate, and they will also have a shop on site, where customers will be able to purchase the exclusive premium malts offered for tasting by the various exhibitors. The shop also acts as the official retailer for a number of other shows in the UK, including Whisky Live and The Whisky Lounge, and can be found throughout the year providing great bottles of whisky around the country.
If you wish to purchase a specific bottling at the show we recommend that you contact us in advance to ensure we reserve one for you. Please note that all show bottlings are sold on a first come, first served basis and cannot be reserved.
The area around Old Billingsgate is rich in cultural attractions and things to do, with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the London Dungeon, Tate Modern, Tower Bridge and London’s culinary hub the Borough Market all short walk away, on the other side of London Bridge. The proximity of London Bridge, Tower Hill, Fenchurch Street and Bank stations will make getting to and from the show convenient for visitors from across the UK and abroad.
