The Spirit of Maastricht festival bottling

In collaboration with The Best of Whisky we had selected another special festival bottling. A beautiful single malt Craigellachie from the Speyside, located on first-fill sherry barrels that have matured the whisky for 9 years from 2008 to 2018. Another great independent bottling, specially selected for the whisky festival The Spirit of Maastricht 2018. You will taste the vanilla and abundant coffee notes, notes of milk chocolate and roasted hazelnuts. You are still able to order it at Best of Whisky.

La saison culinaire

The weekend of the whisky & spirits festival falls in the culinary season of Maastricht and surroundings. The inhabitants and visitors of Maastricht can follow a culinary route through the city in which The Spirit of Maastricht is also included. At our festival you can get acquainted with the “whisky & food pairing”, where snacks are offered that match the whiskies you taste. Only local products are used by renowned chefs to make these tasty snacks and canapés.

The combination of these two events guarantees visitors a great evening or a great weekend out in Maastricht!
