A big thank you to everyone who made the 2023 McGregor Whisky Weekend even more successful than the first. To the whisky suppliers and experts for supplying the whiskies, their knowledge and engaging personalities.

To Valpre for supplying the water and their generous sponsorship. To the team at Lords Winery and Gezelligheid Restaurant for making everything work on the Saturday and to The Blend, 51, OVL Studio and Temenos, for hosting the Masterclasses on Friday. And to all those who attended the Masterclasses and the Main Event at Lords (and so generously supported the raffle, which raised R12500 for Friends of Care). Without all of you it wouldn’t be possible.

We have posted photos from 2023 in the Gallery. Have a look and see if you can spot yourself.
