Cinderella Whisky Fair 2020

It is always great to be back at Cinderella Whisky Fair! This year, 2020, was my seventh fair in a row! The fair was celebrating its 12th anniversary and there was a lot of special bottlings for the fair.

It was 1560 guests attending the first trip. The organiser expected around 1500 the next two trips as well. I did as last year and attended the first two trips. Attending two trips allows me to spend a lot of time at the different stands.
