World Whisky Day 2013 Announced For 18th May

by Oliver Klimek on September 6, 2012

Whisky magazine just published an article on their website, announcing that the next World Whisky Day will be celebrated on 18th May 2013.

World Whisky Day 2012 has created quite a stir-up, as you may remember. Setting the date to 27th March, the birthday of whisky writer Michael Jackson, got quite a few people quite upset who knew about the first initiative to honour Michael Jackson on his birthday with a charity event. You can read about this controversy in two articles I wrote about this topic:

Needless to say that I am very pleased to see that the organiser(s) have decided to move the event to a less symbolic date.

Does our friend BB realise that a WORLD whisky day isn’t necessarily dependent upon Scotch whisky?

Yes, indeed it looks a bit like the Scottish hijacking the ‘World’ here. But in Germany there was a “World Fish Sandwich Day” on 12th May which was only celebrated in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, so this phemomenon is not really exclusive to WWD.

it’s all the more a good idea to move the date, as it provides ANOTHER day in the year with a pretext to drink whisky. not that i need any, mind you.
anyway, as i say (because i’m french) :
lundi, whisky ;
mardi, whisky ;
mercredi, whisky ;
jeudi, whisky ;
vendredi, week-end… donc whisky ;
samedi, whisky aussi.
dimanche, whisky quand-même.

friends who love whisky is all we need.
ah, and a couple of interesting bottles. ^^
