We appreciate all whisk(e)y here at BourbonBlog.com (especially bourbon) and celebrate it every day of year. However, today especially we encourage you to and to Tweet with #WorldWhiskyDay as we ask you what you are #DrinkTonight (our nightly question). Tweet to both @BourbonBlog and @WorldWhiskyDay
We also encourage your to register your event if you’re drinking Bourbon and whiskey today and tonight on this link so that you can be added to World Whisky Day’s official Global Map. Right now, there are 170 events and we just registered our own to be added. World Whisky Day says they are inviting all bars, restaurants, hotels, whisky clubs, liquor stores, whisky clubs, whisky distilleries, and fans to get registered on the map and celebrate by raising a glass of whisky.
Over 17,000 people are expected to take part in celebrations in 30 different countries. The official website www.WorldWhiskyDay.com became so popular with hits today that is appears it even shut down briefly, but it is back up now.
This day is yet another example of how popular bourbon and other whiskies around the world have become. One of the reasons why we see you back here for a virtual pour so often, right?
World Whisky day is giving whisky enthusiasts the chance to enter “World Whisky Day Best Photo” on this link for the chance to win a rare bottle of Whyte & Mackay 30 year old blended whisky. Our good friend Whyte & Mackay’s Master Blender Richard Paterson will be judging and decide which photo is the best and the winner.
