Your Alter Ego was invited to the 2018 Whisky and Spirits Festival that took place at Sandton Convention Centre. Best believe I was like a kid in a candy store! The festival has been around for 15 years and you could tell by the way everything was so well put together – everything was just flowing … excuse the pun.
One of the things I appreciate about such events is that you’re able to learn more about what we put in. I mean when you go to a liquor store, you literally get what you want and you’re out. It’s up to you to find out more about what you’re consuming and how you can dress it up and so forth. So imagine a place where you’re not only having the drinks made for you while you watch, but you learn from other enthusiasts, the atmosphere is right, there's yummy food, the energy is on high frequency – small heaven I tell you.

While I was still recovering from an awesome Friday evening, trust the Tanqueray team to deliver a thank you note and a Tanqueray Imported gin with copa glass in Gift Pack. I mean - shut the front door! I already loved the service at the Festival – now this?! It’s a win for me. And since I’m a cocktail ghel – so I’m super excited to see what awesome cocktails I’m going to create with my Tanqueray.
In the meantime, here are some fun facts about Tanqueray:
• It was produced in 1830 by Charles Tanqueray
• Tanqueray is the world’s finest gin (as voted by bartenders*)
• Tanqueray London Dry Gin is our go-to gin for a gin and tonic
• Tanqueray 10 is suited to a very different range of cocktails

While there was a variety of brands that were there to showcase their offering – listen here, the Tanqueray team brought on the vibe! What helped was that we got there literally at 6pm when the doors opened – that’s how excited we were – so we were fortunate to see the set up before it got busy. Upon arrival, you’re given a branded glass, a bottle of water and a card which has 15 tokens in it. I will gladly say spent most of my tokens on the Clover Club cocktail – now that’s one drink I definitely need to learn how to make!
Yummy in my tummy!
