A world-class whisky bar in the heart of Budapest
Here is the chance to try these rarities.
According to Femina.hu, the atmospheric cocktail bar in Budapest’s inner city has a story like a novel. A mother of a big family, a whisky lover husband and a babysitter came up with the idea together, where they wanted to show their taste to the world.
First, they tried the special quality drinks from WhiskyNet’s webshop, then they opened a liquor store, but it got to a whole other level when their paths met with the professional world travelling bartender Norbi Schök: from their cooperation GoodSpirit Bar has opened.
Manly or feminine drink?
Among many people, the stereotype that whisky is a manly drink still lives on. In fact, it has many faces which you might have not tasted yet. It is time to leave the old views behind.
Facts have begun to refute the opinion that there is a male superiority among whisky lovers. The sensitivity of women has always been advantageous for spirit expertise. Female distillers are not rare phenomena in Scotland.
