Hiya Krabban!

UISGE 2012 will take place 9th - 10th of February, at Vanha Ylioppilastalo (old student's house), in the very centre of Helsinki.

All whisky impvrters of Finland are joining us there, and there will be 150 -200 different kinds of whiskies to enjoy during the two days of festivities! Many guest speakers from various distilleries will be present also, providing guided masterclass tastings as well as minglign with the audience during the evenings.

Entrance fee of 10eur. includes an engraved tasting glass, cloakroom fee, and the UISGE 2012 booklet. The 1cl - 2cl whisky samples are priced very moderately, a good % below normal prices in bars & restaurants, I believe.

For guests arriving from further away, we have made a deal with Scandic Grand Marina hotel http://www.scandichotels.com/en/Hotels/Countries/Finland/Helsinki/Hotels/Scandic... nearby - the fee is a good -30% or more discounted during the UISGE week, mention code VIS080211 when booking. 50 rooms have been reserved at this time. Scandic Grand Marina is an excellent hotel, and is just a short hop away from the main vanue.

During the whole week 6 (6th - 11th of February) we celebrate unofficially "Helsinki Uisge Week" - meaning that every day, various good whisky pubs & clubs will have special limited edition whiskies available, offers, and small hosted events as well. We shall publish a map shortly, with all the participants marked, along with further information on who's doing what where. Rest assured, there will be a lot of things a la whisky happening here during that busy week...!!!

Further information is available at mijansso(at)yahoo.com  .

Welcome to Helsinki Uisge Week 2012!!!

PLEASE NOTE:


The booking code for Scandic Grand Marina is VIS080212 when booking, and you must call the hotel, tel. +358 9 16661. to book! Seems the code is not working in the Scandic net booking system, only with direct call to hotel. Room price is 79 eur/night single, 89 eur/night double.
