The 2nd Regional Whisky Fair ZG016 ended in Zagreb on Saturday 27 February 2016 at the Hypo Event Centre in Zagreb…
More than 1,000 visitors tuned up to the 2-day fair to enjoy more than 60 various whisky brands and learn more about the ‘water of life’ and culture of enjoying whisky. This year visitors were able to sample various Scottish, Irish, Canadian, American and Japanese whiskeys at promotional prices. Brands at the Zagreb fair included Glenmorangie, Chivas, Ballantine’s, Jameson, Glenlivet, Johnnie Walker, Lagavulin, Akashi, Togouchi, Grant’s, Glenfiddich, Tullamore Dew, The Famous Grouse, Jack Daniel’s, The Macallan, Laphroaig, Ardmore and lots more.
This year’s fair also included a number of interesting workshops and a round table on Friday with the Ambassadors of Ireland, Canada and the United Kingdom. The Ambassadors talked about how much of a part whisky plays in the economy of their home countries, and they also noted how Croatia is increasingly accepting the whisky drinking culture. The trio promised to personally work on the popularisation of whisky in Croatia and help get more brands on the Croatian market.
