Collective whisky tasting - Friday June 8th

The Collective is organizing a very exclusive whisky tasting!

Cadenhead is Scotland's oldest independent whisky bottler. They haunt the world and select the finest casks from the greatest distilleries. This means you get the best barrels from the best distilleries. All single cask.

Together with them we have organized a whisky tasting where we get to meet whiskies from unexpected places. We all know the Scottish whisky, but many countries all over the world produce some really good stuff. Countries such as New Zealand, Japan and Canada make excellent whisky. During this tasting we get to meet some exciting new whiskies from all over the world.

The date is Friday June 8, starting at 7:30 pm. Halfway through this entertaining evening there will be a little snack. We have been arranged a special price for members of The Collective (and friends, do invite them!): 22,50 euro. Location is in their shop, Rozengracht 232, just around the corner of the fire brigade.

Please let me know if you want to be there, as they have to reserve enough whisky for everybody.

Also, the end-of-month drinks is still on this time next week in the new place. 5.30pm – Thursday 31st May.

Hope to see you at both!

Opening drinks – 31st May

Moving is hell. We’ve got almost everything set-up now but we still have to paint the stairs and 100 other things. We hope to be ready by the end of the month so we can have drinks on Thursday 31st May. It’s an informal but open borrel so bring some friends along. We’ll have a proper official opening next month when we have time to send out some invitations.

 

New cartoon

Another new cartoon from Fraser Bailey, Craig Lovelidge and Janneke Huijnk. It will air in Adformatie soon. We’re taking a break for the summer with the ads, as circulation goes way down. Watch this space for more adventures in the autumn.
