Some of our clients and their feedback…

  • review rating 5  Sean ran an awesome bespoke tasting for a crossover whisky club event which catered to all levels from those who had never been to a tasting before to those who really knew their whisky. He surprised everyone with great value for money whiskies that everyone found a favourite in. The whisky rebellion tastings are always incredibly informative and they never fail to be fun.

    review rating 5  We had a great whiskey tasting experience with Kayleigh from The Whisky Rebellion. Very informative and we got to try the lessor well-known brands usually reserved for the connoisseur 👌🏼 They were really helpful and easy to book with, we’d definitely recommend them and may even plan another tasting soon!

  • review rating 5  A Really AWESOME way to cap off a Bachelor Party - day event. Devin our designated whisky expert from Whisky Rebellion had to travel to the East Rand (actually so Far East, we should have done the Mystic Dragon - Oriental Whisky Tasting option). Without doubt, a really fun and extra memorable experience. The Team at Whiskey Rebellion were very professional, knowledgeable & friendly right from our 1st contact when planning the event. Devin took us through our Scottish Singles Whisky Tasting and passionately entertained our Bachelor party, while always keeping matters interactive & fun. He was more than happy to expand on multiple questions while deliberately maintaining a discussion that didn’t get too complex or involved to loose our novice attention spans and palates. As we learnt, the fine balance between the Art & Science of Whisky distilling, can get extremely complicated. However if ever required from a group, Devin could easily engage & discuss in-depth subtleties with industry experts. We on the other hand, just wanted to have fun & enjoy some Fine Whisky and were still getting to grips with the ABCs such as why there’s sometimes an E in Whisky and if adding ice to expensive whiskies is acceptable when visiting your boss for a braai. We will highly recommend their Team to anyone planning a similar tasting event, as the 5 out of 5 Rating from all of those who joined us for the tasting on the day, will attest to. Cheers Brad

    review rating 5  Very informed and whiskey pedigreed presenters. Great education on whiskey whilst enjoying the joys of the liquor and perhaps matching them with fine chocolates.. I have used them twice for events I managed and both times they were a huge hit and a wonderful resource..
