2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Whisky Live, first held in Tokyo and London 10 years ago. Whisky Live London 2010 will headline a number of new elements, including the first ever Whisky Antiques Road Show.Visitors are invited to bring their whisky books, accessories and whiskies and have them assessed by our resident ‘collector’ expert John Rose, alongside new Whisky Magazine columnist Jonny McCormick. Once you have had your item valued, you can then store it safely to take home, or enter it to the Whisky Auction, held at 4pm on Saturday 27th February.With more space and more entertainment, a new half day ticket on Saturday from 11am to 2pm and the exclusive Friday evening available to just 500 guests, Whisky Live London 2010 should be a fitting celebration of 10 years of presenting the very best whiskies from across the world.There will also be a number of commemorative bottlings presented at each show; Highland Park 10 Years Old, 59.3%; Evan Williams 10 Years Old, 63.9% (a number signed by Parker Beam), and Japanese bottlings from Yoichi, Miyagikyo, Yamazaki, Hakushu, Karuizawa and Hanyu. To reserve your own bottle for collection at Whisky Live London visit The Whisky Shop (with 13 stores throughout the UK) will be on hand for any of the whiskies on display at Whisky Live London, so to find out more about Whisky Live in any of its nineteen cities in 2010, just visit
