World whiskies

Things are looking up for the London Whisky Club. Jason did an absolutely sterling effort in finding us a new venue. The Bottlescrue in St Paul’s. A terrific venue which has a room that is perfect for our needs. Our attendance was nearly the same as the previous week with Jez, Jason, Michael, Conor, Shiv, Frankie and Jason. James sadly couldn’t make it but we had a special guest appearance by Martin from TimeforWhisky who was over from Hong Kong/Australia.
