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.

Management and their banking partners, held in the Stateroom on board the Albis. The Islay folk singer Norma Munro is flanked by James McEwan, Master Distiller and Director of Bruichladdich

Macallan; plus the new Bruichladdich 10 years old, of course.
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.
