A drum is a portion of whiskey.
Our philosophy is that a bottle of whiskey should be divided between as many guests as possible, so we took 20 ml per unit as the best volume for a quality tasting for 35 people.
The cost of one dram on Whiskey Dram 2018 will be from 20 to 1000 UAH, but on average ~ 100-200 UAH.
In total, there will be 8 zones at the festival:
- 4 tasting rooms (1 Speyside 2. Highland 3. America and Ireland 4. Asia)
- Selective Whiskey zone with over 20 rare whiskey positions
- lecture hall (12 free and 5 paid lectures of PRO)
- Whiskey Bar with author cocktails from 4 best Kiev bartenders
- food court and Yellow Place zone
The Selective Whiskey area is available to all guests of the festival. It will be especially valuable for those who have long loved and understood.
A list of rare & exclusive positions can be found here .
We have prepared 17 unique tasting lectures for you.
Each - 45 minutes to learn a lot and need. 12 of them are free, so you can meet, taste and ask the most difficult questions to the top whiskey professionals. Entrance to them is free and without prior registration, as the hall is filled 15 minutes before the start.
And 5 lectures in the PRO zone, tickets for which it is better to purchase in advance. With those who already know a lot and want to grow not in breadth, but deep down, at a comparative tasting we will find out why you need to choose not a year, but taste. Let's look at Spayside through the prism of independent botling, let's try a limited series of single-barrel releases of wine finishes. We will learn what Scotch whiskey is with a Ukrainian soul and check our strength at a blind tasting. A detailed description and schedule of all lectures can be found here .

On October 20, already traditionally on Whiskey Dram, a cocktail bar from the company Bar Trigger will open. Four best bartenders of Kiev will gather at one stand and present their vision of modern cocktails based on single malt whiskey.
Among them: Nadir Kuchkarov with a cocktail based on Tullamore Dew, Victor Pravosudov with a cocktail based on whiskey Four Roses, Alexander Skubach with a cocktail at the whiskey from Monkey Shoulder and Dmitry Shovkoplyas with a cocktail at Woodford Reserve.
It is in this zone that every guest of the festival can get a free cocktail based on 12-year-old whiskey from Glenfiddich.
Irish Coffee from Yellow Place
Classic Irish Coffee is made on the basis of Irish whiskey. Especially for the Whiskey dram 2018, the Yellow Place coffee house has completely updated the entire line of beverages and captured almost all the regions where whiskeys are made: Ireland, Scotland, India, America and Taiwan.
Yellow Place will also prepare classic coffee drinks.
In a separate food court zone there will be everything to satisfy hunger and rest from tastings: hearty soups, burgers, grilled salmon, etc.
The main value for us is a new experience for everyone.
Tastings, workshops and acquaintances - all this for broadening the horizons and, of course, the development of taste. See you!
