Ibiza Baby…

…we’ll never know. Perhaps I should ask what you call a woman who decides at the last minute to travel 500 plus miles for a whisky festival? Well the answer would be Sarah. Yes that’s what I did.. and the why? That’ll be because I can be spontaneous…and spontaneity is good,  and plus I fancied a day off the sofa.…

Stoke Whisky Festival

Saturday 23rd June saw me making a break for the border… I was off home, or should I say I was off to England. Kind of the same thing really. Why was I heading there? This was for the Stoke Whisky Festival. This is run by Neil Rowley and Chris Knight, from their website “we wanted a way to give…

Whisky, Fudge, Fun & Beards…

Well now it’s been a little while since I graced you all with my words and thoughts, and seeing as I’ve got a few hours to spare before I fly away home, I thought I’d put my thumbs to good use. And now I’m catching up and properly finishing it off… So, what’s been happening? Well I’ve had two fun…

Birmingham Whisky Festival

I was dreaming I was flying… In actual fact I was flying. Flying down from the frozen North. Between snoozing, I was gazing down at the snow dusted mountains and villages across the UK. Yes I (little Miss Spontaneous) had decided to squeeze in one last festival this year…well you would, wouldn’t you? So, here I was in Birmingham for…

A Year of Festivals…and Friends

Today I attended the Yorkshire Whisky Festival hosted by The Whisky Lounge. Maybe this doesn’t mean a lot to anyone but me, but this is the anniversary of my first year of festivals. And it’s been a good year. It has been a year that saw me setting up iheartwhisky fudge. It’s been the year I started to write and…

The Whisky Exchange Show (TWE) 

Or of course I could go all youthful and say “Totally Wicked Event!” My little fudge business gained me a ticket to the trade show on the Monday and I was really looking forward to it. Having a day free on the Sunday made one decision easy, buy a ticket for that. So I did. And this is how it…

Distilled 17

So having left The Whisky Lounge festival in Manchester and hot footing it to the airport I was now off to Inverness airport. Destination Elgin and Distilled 17. Upon arrival and eventually gaining access to the airport (they’d forgotten to open the arrivals door) and waving down the bus to Elgin (it was leaving) I arrived at the Town Hall…

Manchester Whisky Festival 

So sometimes I do things of a slightly spontaneous nature. And this was one of them. And why the heck not?! Friday morning had me up at silly o’clock and off to the airport for a relatively quick flight down to Manchester for The Whisky Lounge festival. Beautiful blue skies had driven away the fog that had threatened to delay…

Paul John Whisky – Cask #1444

Last Saturday I was down in the rather beautiful Manchester Town Hall for The Whisky Lounge festival. As it was getting very close to my time to rush off to the airport (boo!!) and so my final dram, I thought it would be nice to finish with the Classic. So I headed to the Paul John table to ask for…
