Taste The Doom 25th Edition

Finally we can announce that TTD25 will take place on May 7th in one of the greatest locations we’ve had the pleasure of serving whisky in: Studenterhuset, Aalborg, Denmark. Their attention to detail made the night absolutely brilliant and wildly epic and last time was even followed up by a 2 page-spread in the local newspaper. So we reckon this might sell out quite fast…
As usual we have gone to great lengths in order to select the finest whisky for your palate and we will disclose the entire list shortly, but for now we can say that we’ll have a rather splendid independent bottling of Dalmore and a truly surprising little known bottling of Ailsa Bay!

Use this link to secure your ticket now: http://www.billetlugen.dk/da/event/taste-doom/billetter

And we haven’t even mentioned the best part: TTD25 will take place in a super secret place which is set to blow your mind! So there really are no excuses for not showing up.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 11th March

Next Slowlands is just around the corner…

The new bottle we will have on offer is the 2nd release from Berlin’s 2nd best whisky bar and rather unusual: A 15 yo single cask with chest warming 54.7% abv and limited to 45 bottles from the only distillery on the Isle of Jura on Scotland’s west coast. As you can tell from the photo another whisky with a classy label…

The soundtrack to the evening will be a guest mix provided by dj-duo DEATH BEFORE MARRIAGE featuring AHAB, Alberich, Alessandro Cortini, Atriarch, Beatrik, Belzebong, Bethlehem, Black Sun Roof, Christian Cosmos, Cleared, DAF, Dark Castle, Dual Action, Essenz, Gabriel Saloman, Gate, Haxan Cloak, Isengring, Jacob Kirkegaard & Else Marie Pade, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Jens-Uwe Beyer, Joachim Nordwall, La Vampires & Zola Jesus, Leucosis, Muslimgauze, N1L, Natural Snow Buildings, Nether Regions, Prurient, Quasar, Rose Kemp, Shub-Niggurath, Skepticism, Thou, Unholy, Universe Zero, Urfaust, Virile Games, Wolf Eyes, Young Hunting.

Enjoy up to 30 different kinds of liquid gold from all around the world (not just Scotland and USA), most of which you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin.

We are open from 9pm on.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 12th February

And again… Good Whisky. Evil Music. Charming Staff.
Enjoy up to 30 different kinds of liquid gold from all around the world (not just Scotland and USA), most of which you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin.

We can now proudly announce three new bottles for upcoming Friday:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Left: a 12 years old elegant Linkwood. Right: an 11 yo meaty Mortlach. Both are single cask releases from Scotland’s oldest independent bottler Cadenhead. Both in cask strength.

The one in the middle combines two features we mostly avoid at Slowlands: Blends (because most of them taste too friendly) and Japanese Whiskys (because they are usually to expensive in Europe). However this Hibiki (with the far too friendly name) “Japanese Harmony” has some edge to it which convinced us. And it will convince you.

We are open from 9pm on.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 15th January

This happens tonight!

What’s the worst thing at a bar? A silent TV on the wall showing some nonsense sports or news.
What’s the best thing at a whisky-only bar night? Nick Offermann on a big screen silently watching you watching him drinking whisky. To increase the pleasure we will be showing the ten hours version tomorrow. We start at 9pm sharp so be on time to not miss his first sip.

UPDATE FOR SLOWLANDS ON SEPT 11TH:

Have you ever felt bad the morning after a whisky night? Then this is for you:
The more whisky you will drink this Friday the more you are helping people who had to flee Syria due to the devastating situation there. I will donate the profit of this Friday’s Slowlands to a long-running NGO that supports Syrian refugees called „Action Syria – Tamer Alawam and Friends e.V.“. It’s co-founded by a friend of mine so I am sure the money will be put to the very best use.

More info about the NGO at http://actionsyria.org/

More about the specific project the money will go to at https://www.betterplace.org/de/projects/16369-bring-mit-uns-spenden-zu-syriens-gefluchtete

Slainte – Refugees Welcome.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 11th September

Slowlands is back from its summer paralysis this Friday with more good whisky + evil music.

Beside a selection of around 30 treats from all around the world (not just Scotland and USA), most of which you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin, we are happy to unveil these two additions to the line-up:

Left: Glenfarclas limited bottling for Köpenicker Whiskyherbst 2015. The 2007 edition of this is the best sherry bomb in the well guarded Slowlands vaults so if this is only half as good it’s already a killer. Clocks in at 60% abv.

Right: J. Haider Rye Malt Peated 46%. Yes, that’s the world’s only peated rye whisky. Of course from Austria. For the advanced, fearless connaisseur.

 

And the standard info…

We are open from 9pm-2am on Friday 11th September 2015

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 12th June

Sorry for the short notice again – this Slowlands happens tonight!

As always: good whisky + evil music

Enjoy up to 30 different kinds of liquid gold from all around the world (not just Scotland and USA), most of which you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin

Please allow us to mention a few of the bottles we have on offer this time:

The left four will most likely be on the menu for the last time, meaning we move them to the private Slowlands collection for our personal pleasure.
The four on the right are new arrivals: 2 heavily peated, one classic malty one and a friendly sherry bomb.

The one in the middle is the special guest: a decent whisky from… Germany! It’s so special that you even can’t buy it. This one is for free and only available to those who can convince us that they deserve one.

And we have music… to fight the upcoming summer relaxation we decided for a more metal-ish selection: Angel, CELESTE, Birushanah, Corrupted, SunnO))) & Boris, Ben Frost, Mika Vainio, KTL, Monarch!, Buried At Sea, Year Of No Light, Grey Daturas, Conan, Throbbing Gristle, Zerkalo, Swans, Pan Sonic, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
