Set aside the date and make your plans to enjoy all Penang has to offer with a highlight event in WhiskyPLUS, Malaysia’s original whisky and spirits tasting show – and still the best!

Whisky enthusiasts, mark your calendars! WhiskyPLUS Penang returns on Saturday, July 20, 2024, held in the grand ballroom at the stunning new Penang Marriott Hotel on Gurney Drive.

WhiskyPLUS, Malaysia’s Premier Whisky and Spirits Tasting Event, promises an unforgettable experience for both seasoned connoisseurs and curious newcomers alike. Set along George Town’s new Gurney Bay seafront development at the Penang Marriott Hotel, the event will showcase a broad range of whiskies and other spirits, offering guests the chance to explore, sample, and appreciate fine selections in a beautiful and comfortable setting.

This year’s WhiskyPLUS in Penang features a single session from 3pm to 9pm, ensuring attendees have ample time to leisurely savour the diverse offerings. Expect a curated selection of whiskies from around the globe, complemented by other spirits such as gin, rum, and more. The event is designed to be a somewhat exclusive affair, with a limited number of passes available to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all guests. Expert exhibitors will be on hand to guide tastings and share their knowledge, enhancing the educational aspect of the event.

WhiskyPLUS will also feature the popular Collector’s Corner for the first time in Penang. This booth, a mainstay at the KL event, allows guests to purchase rare and old whiskies by the dram – often at appealing prices that you’d be unlikely to find at your favourite bar.

Exhibitors will also be once again offering bottles for sale at very special (and often irresistible) event-day prices, so if you find a particular selection that you especially like, you can take home a bottle!

Guests can choose between Standard or VIP passes, both of which include a commemorative whisky tasting glass and a delicious set meal to complement your tasting experience. VIP pass holders will also enjoy exclusive access to a few more premium whiskies and receive a special goodie bag, including a handy whisky glass lanyard. These guests will also have access to the VIP Lounge, where additional food choices and comfortable seating await.

For those who may not be able to commit to a full session, WhiskyPLUS also offers an inexpensive short-session Explorer Pass, which includes entry and a whisky tasting glass for unlimited sampling. This pass is only available at the door, and entry begins at 6:30pm until the end of the event.

Maserati, the renowned Italian luxury car manufacturer, will be a distinguished partner at WhiskyPLUS Penang 2024. Known for its legacy of elegance, performance, and innovation, Maserati will showcase a handful of its exquisite vehicles at the event. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Maserati’s latest models, experiencing first-hand the blend of Italian craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology that defines the brand. This partnership underscores the sophistication and exclusivity of WhiskyPLUS, making it an unmissable event for enthusiasts of fine spirits and luxury automobiles alike.
