The 2014 EABL Love Whisky Festival has finally brought an event suitable for whisky lovers to Nairobi. The Whisky Picnic was first thought up by Nick Ravenhall and a friend during a night of whisky enjoying. They were looking at an old picture of some old men sitting on a hillside enjoying some whisky and they though, “We want that!”
The two friends were both bar tenders and they both worked in whisky distilleries. They were well versed with what a traditional whisky tasting is, but they wanted something young, vibrant and fun. And they began the festival with a small group of people and withing 3 years they had 700 people attending.
Watch Nick explain how it all began here.
