Blackadder at Stockholm Whisky Festival 2008

Source:Raw Cask St Magdalene 1982

Blackadder will again be at the Whisky Fair held at Nacka Strand, Stockholm, Sweden. The Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival, which this year is in its 16th year, is expected to attract nearly 25,000 visitors again, making it by far the biggest and most popular event of its kind anywhere in the world. You can find details at the link below.

Blackadder owner Robin Tucek will be welcoming guests to the Clydesdale AB stand for the two weeks of the fair, which will be held from 18th to 20th and 25th to 27th September.
With him will be a large selection of exciting new bottlings in the Blackadder Raw Cask series, together with whiskies from the Clydesdale Original and Aberdeen Distillers’ ranges.

Exhibitors at the fair will have hundreds of different single malt whiskies available for tastings, including many rare and hard to track down bottling from independent companies such as Blackadder.

Included among the Blackadder whiskies will be one of the last remaining bottles of one of the first ever Blackadder bottled whiskies, a 19 year old Blackadder Caol Ila 43% bottled in 1996. This whisky recently came out top of a tasting of six different whiskies held by 18 members of a Norrköping, Sweden, whisky club.

Also open for tasting will be the recently bottled Blackadder Raw Cask St Magdalene 1982 25yo 61.8% volume. This whisky also came out top in Sweden recently, this time in a tasting of different Linlithgow and St Magdalene bottlings held a couple of weeks ago by 38 members of the Bredaryd whisky club. St Magdalene and Linlithgow were the two names given to whiskies casked at the old St Magdalene distillery, which closed in 1983.

We hope to see you in Stockholm!
