Northern Whisky Festival
From 22 through 24 March 2012, the annual Whisky Festival will be held in the Der Aa-kerk in Groningen. After a careful start in 2006 the festival has developed into a huge crowd puller: last year, about 4000 Whisky fans came to the historical church in Groningen city centre.
The festival features hundreds varieties of whisky to see and sample. Information is provided about the production of whisky and workshops and master classes about various subjects are given, with special attention for the combination of whisky and food. National and international whisky experts will attend the festival, including internationally famous culinary writers such as Hans Offringa, Robin Brilleman, Martine Nouet, Dave Broom and Charles Maclean.
