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:
- World Whisky Day – Honest Celebration or Rip-Off?
- World Whisky Day – How Hedonism And Opportunism Killed An Idea
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.
