The Whisky Exchange


We love sharing our passion for spirits and, as such, we create landmark events and tastings to bring the greatest drinks and experiences to you. Whether running masterclasses at the award-winning Whisky Show, pouring pisco at a cosy tasting in our Covent Garden shop or supporting our friends at London Cocktail Week, our dedicated events team is working hard to ensure you find your next favourite drink.

Whisky Show

The UK’s biggest and best whisky festival. Taste whiskies from around the world in the company of the people who make them. Founded in 2008 and – if we say so ourselves – getting better every year.

Rum Show

An immersive look into the contemporary world of rum. Leave your preconceptions at the door and join us for great rums, cocktails, blending experiences, masterclasses and more.

Cognac show

The only place, outside the famed French region, where you can experience the soul of Cognac – plus try our favourite Armagnac and Calvados too!

Champagne Show

Where London comes to taste the stars. Our award-winning show brings together the best names in Champagne, from big houses to boutique growers, ready to sip side-by-side.

Whisky Show Old & Rare

Where the whisky community celebrates the spirits which shaped the modern world. A weekend of friendship, knowledge-sharing and, of course, spectacular whisky.


tasting events

Alongside our annual show calendar we also host regular wine, whisky, spirits and liqueur tastings across our three London shops. From in-depth masterclasses to informal walkaround tastings, there’s something for everyone.
