Experience exceptional Cognacs, cocktails and one-off masterclasses at the UK’s only dedicated Cognac festival – includes guest spirits, Calvados and Armagnac.
Here at The Whisky Exchange, we have always looked for new ways to share our passion for fine spirits. Over the years, this has led us to create a number of landmark events in partnership with the biggest names in the drinks business. These range in size from our annual Whisky Show which draws crowds of thousands over three days, to intimate masterclasses with our favourite producers from across the world.
On this page you will find everything you need to know about our award-winning annual shows and monthly programme of tastings and in-store events. Whatever your drink of choice, we pride ourselves on offering educational and informative experiences to suit your tastes.
Join us for a celebration of the world’s finest rums. Take in a masterclass with leading producers, enjoy a cocktail at our pop-up bar and choose from more than 250 rums available to sample.
The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show, the UK’s most popular whisky festival in the heart of London for a truly luxurious whisky experience like no other.
Champagne Show draws more than thirty of the region’s best and brightest producers from the rolling hills of Northern France to our beautiful riverside venue.
We host regular events in our three London shops and other venues around the city. These cover a range of categories including – but by no means limited to – Tequila and mezcal, wine, cocktails and aperitifs.
