Dear whisky lovers and esteemed visitors of our L&B Whisky Weekend Amsterdam,
Following the COVID-19 press conference of 1 September I have decided to cancel the January 2021 L&B Whisky Weekend Amsterdam.
At an event like this it is impossible to maintain the required 1.5 meter social distancing. Furthermore, the measures taken by the
Dutch Government and the Dutch RIVM – which I fully comply with as they are here to protect the health of you, the volunteers and the
exhibitors – will be at the expense of the set-up and atmosphere that I want to share with you during the Whisky Weekend.
All further information on this website – besides this homepage – is not applicable to the L&B Whisky Weekend 2021.
I hope that we can and may organise a fantastic Whisky Weekend in January 2022!
With whisky regards,
on behalf of the exhibitors and the volunteers,
WHEN & WHERE
The 13th edition of the L&B Whisky Weekend Amsterdam will take place on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 January 2021 in the “Posthoornkerk” in Amsterdam.
Tickets cost € 35.50 each.
As we would like to give everyone plenty of time and space to explore all we have to offer, there will be 3 sessions:
The 1st session will be on Friday 15 January 2021 07.00pm - 10.30pm
The 2nd session will be on Saturday 16 January 2021 01.00pm - 04.30pm
The 3rd session will be on Saturday 16 January 2021 07.00pm - 10.30pm
To welcome you your ticket includes a dram in a Glencairn glass and a bottle of water. In addition, you can taste 1 or 2 free whiskies at almost all exhibitors.
Minimum age limit: 18 years!
Tickets can be ordered on this website (page Ticketshop/ start 1 June 2020)
To avoid the hassle with money during the event, consumptions can only be paid for with “L&B” tokens. These tokens are sold per 10 and can be obtained at the cash register at the entrance (cash or pin only/ credit card payment is not possible).
In the odd case you might have some tokens left, you can easily exchange them there again (one token is € 1).
Main sponsor and organiser of the L&B Whisky Weekend Amsterdam is “L&B Whisky café”, owned by Léon Elshoff who is an expert in the field of whisky.
Please come and visit the pub and enjoy one of the 2,100 whisky’s available. When interested in our other tastings, please check out the website (www.lbwhiskyproeverijen.nl) for further details.
