WHISKY lovers will be saying cheers as a the first ever old and rare whisky show in Glasgow.

The Whisky Exchange is launching a brand new show in Scotland for the first time in February, dedicated to Old & Rare whiskies.

The show, at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel on February 18 and 19, will welcome more than 400 visitors to taste and discover great whiskies produced in bygone eras. This will be a whisky show like no other.

Many of the whiskies on show will have been created using production techniques rarely seen in the modern day. The organisers have invited some of the world’s best whisky collectors, specialty whisky bars and independent bottlers to share some of the finest whiskies from the past.

The Whisky Show: Old & Rare is the brainchild of The Whisky Exchange, and whisky experts Angus MacRaild and Jonny McMillan. As collectors themselves, the team is passionate about old and rare whiskies and this event is a chance to share their passion with the world.

Show manager Andrew Milne is excited to be bringing The Whisky Show to Glasgow: “We’ve enjoyed great popularity with the London show where there is a great appetite for discovery. It’s always been our desire to run a show specialising in old and rare whisky and it feels like a natural step to bring something back to whisky’s homeland and share drams together in their country of birth. Our theme of Old & Rare is answering the need for something interesting and different and offering a chance to try whiskies that many of us will never be able to buy.”

Day tickets: £100 (includes £50 of whisky tokens, free tasting glass and access to hundreds of old and rare whiskies) Tickets available from whiskyshow.com
