A successful fifth calendar edition for Whisky live Beirut

Whisky Live Beirut’s fifth edition took place from December 1-3, 2022. Welcoming over 5,000 visitors to Beirut’s Seaside Pavilion, the show was a big hit with whisky enthusiasts and amateurs, who enjoyed an array of masterclasses with international experts and brand ambassadors.

The event opened in style on December 1 in the presence of the Lebanese Minister of Tourism, H.E. Walid Nassar, presidents of associations and syndicates, trade representatives, international experts and the media.

Guests were invited to sample the finest whiskies from more than 60 of the top international brands. Lebanese artisanal whisky and gin producers also launched their specialty brands at the show.

Organized by Hospitality Services, Whisky Live Beirut featured a whisky-tasting area, a Star Bar, masterclasses and Dine for a Cause whisky-pairing dinners.

“Whisky Live Beirut never fails to bring magic and sparkle to our capital, and we are delighted to have been able to organize this special event despite the numerous challenges. The success of our fifth edition at the end of what has been another difficult year for our country is proof that the Lebanese spirit continues to move and will always prevail, no matter what,” said Joumana Dammous-Salamé, managing director of Hospitality Services.

“We are looking forward to the sixth edition of Whisky Live Beirut, which will be held from October 26-28, 2023, at Seaside Pavilion. It is a key event for amateurs and professionals to enhance their knowledge in tasting and production. At the forthcoming edition, we will be inviting new international brands to showcase their products, as well as fresh faces and experts to share their know-how and discuss the latest trends,” said Maha El-Khoury, project director.

She added that there will be a greater focus on Lebanese artisanal whisky and gin.

“With more than 10 distilleries, Lebanon is also declaring itself as a new land for gin and whisky.”
