Whiskey tasting

Dear Gyrini,

Who doesn’t like a good whisky? That’s right, no one! That’s why the Excurcie is back with the Whisky Tasting. For the low price of €13,50 you will get to taste 6 whiskies that are guaranteed to be even more special than the ones we had at our previous tastings! Also, you will be tested on your knowledge of whisky in the form of a little quiz (with a very special prize for the smartest one).

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whisky is barely enough.” – Mark Twain

This night full of fun and drinks will take place on April 24 and will start around 17:30. Due to the bottlesize of whisky, obviously only a limited amount of places will be available. If you want to be there, make sure to sign up via

So in short:
Price: €13,50
Date: 24-4-2019
Time: 17:30
