Whisky Classified at WhiskyShip 2001

Whisky Classified was again presented at WhiskyShip 2001 in Zürich, from 30 November to 3 December 2001, sponsored by Deutsche Asset Management and British Airways.

Our seminars were held on board the Albis, at Schiffssteg Bürkliplatz in Zürich.  The programme included a presentation of Whisky Classified by David Wishart, guest appearance from James McEwan of Bruichladdich, and songs by Norma Munro from her recently released CD album "A Song in the Air"Whisky Classified was illustrated by tutored tastings of seven single malt whiskies.

Over 150 people attended our Whisky Classified seminars, making it one of the most popular events of the WhiskyShip Festival.  It was the only presentation not linked to product sales, as David Wishart's work is independent of any whisky distiller or producer.  The seminar was also filmed by South Korea Television, for a feature on WhiskyShip that is to be broadcast from Seoul.
