Time to let loose at Whisky Live 2019

By Promotions 27 September 2019

Few things in life are more invigorating or bracing than the water of life, whisky. Curious about that enigmatic description? It all has to do with the name. Did you know that the word ‘whisky’ is derived from the Gaelic word uisge-beatha, which translates into the water of life? It later came to be pronounced as ‘uski’, which then turned into whisky! In the spirit of celebrating life, Whisky Live Hong Kong is back for its third anniversary in PMQ on October 12!

The music

In collaboration with Whisky Live, Rhythm in a Cask Music Festival will be held in the Qube of PMQ from 6pm. This festival, with a focus on rhythm, explores the scope of nowadays music genres in Hong Kong. With musicians coming from different musical backgrounds, including Alan Po (lead vocalist of Mr.), expect a hybrid of funk, r&b, jazz, soul, and blues—a sound you don’t normally find in indie band concerts. This eclectic atmosphere provides the perfect vibes for chilling out and tasting quality whisky!
