How does it work?
Being a Virtual Whisky Show means you can sit back and sample many different whiskies from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Being a community of whisky lovers, we encourage you to participate in a number of online activities to enhance your experience when sampling your whisky. You can even get together with your local whisky club as a virtual small group to enjoy them together.
The Whisky Show App - your guide to The Virtual Whiskey Show
The Whisky Show app (which we launched at last year’s show) has undergone an upgrade for 2020.
It is configured to guide you through the sampling of these whiskies, with a short video describing each one, and a link to purchase bottles at special show prices. That’s right! Try, rate and buy - all from your living room. Welcome to the future!
There is no pressure on you to go through all of the whiskies in a set time, as you can progress at your own pace, and visit the videos via the app at your leisure. You can do this on your own or with friends who have also purchased Show tickets.
The Virtual Whisky Show will commence with a special livestream event, which we will welcome everyone and give an overview on how the Virtual Show will work, how to use the app and any other FAQs plus a celebrational communal cheers to commence the virtual show’s launch. More details for this to be announced soon so stay tuned!
Details for how to download the app will be announced soon. Like last year, there will be an iOS and Android version available.
Can I rate the whiskies?
Great question and the answer is YES!
Each whisky sample you receive - we encourage you to rate through The Whisky Show app.
Can I buy a whisky if I liked my sample?
Of course you can!
What is the point of trying a whisky if you can’t take it home. The show app will have the ability to purchase any whisky you try from the sample pack.
The ‘Buy My Bottle’ feature is super simple to use. Just select the whisky you rated highly and want to buy. Hit ‘ADD TO CART’, add your payment details (everything is super secure and encrypted) and your delivery address and your done. MAGIC! In a few days time your bottle(s) will arrive safely for you to enjoy.

Want to own a piece of Glenglassaugh History?
Since 1875 the Glenglassaugh distillery has sat quietly on the edge of the picturesque Sandend Bay, breathing in the North Sea air which flows through its warehouses and invigorates its sweet Highland spirit with notes of the sea. Silent for a period of more than 20 years, the distillery was re-awakened in 2008 and its stills brought back to life.
The Whisky Show brings you the first 10 year old single malt released by Glenglassaugh in the world, since it reopened - exclusive to Australia
