Bottle Market 2018

Visit Bremen’s Whisk(e)y Fair

Do you like a good scotch or are you more of a bourbon-type? Do you like the sweetness of a sherry cask finish alongside an exclusive cigar or would you prefer a smoky Islay whisky? Are you a traditionalist or are you curious about German distilleries and lively waters from Scandinavia or Down Under?


Whatever you prefer – we have everything ready for you to journey into an exclusive world of whisk(e)y.

During three days you can explore the variety of Uisge Beatha in a cozy atmosphere. In hall 7 manufacturers, importers, independent bottlers and retailers are waiting for your visit, and are eager for exciting conversations and of course your thirst (for knowledge).

Explore new bottlings and whisk(e)y rarities or get to know the tasteful range of well-known brands. For friends of the British-Irish lifestyle we also have something in store. Next to live music and talks you will also find Celtic jewelry or delights like fudge, haggis and whisk(e)y pralines.


+++ For Winelovers +++
BOTTLE MARKET has grown and been enriched by international premium wines, delicacies and fine chocolates. In hall 7 a huge world of tasteful delights awaits you to explore.

We are looking forward to you and a delightful BOTTLE MARKET weekend.

Welcome to the BOTTLE MARKET!

At events where alcohol is served we as organisers have to pay attention to a lot of things.

For a relaxed and enjoyable visit at the BOTTLE MARKET, we listed some points, which are important for you to notice.

  1. The target group is adult customers, consequential the law for protection of children and youth for serving and selling drinks and consuming cigars at our lounge (admittance 18+) will be observed.
  2. Our gastronomic offer provides a good foundation for your tastings. Please make sure to drink enough water inbetween the whisk(e)y tastings for a long enjoyable stay at the BOTTLE MARKET.
  3. Our exhibitors are instructed to stop serving alcohol to obviously drunk people.
  4. In case of a strongly intoxicated person we will make use of our householder’s rights. This person will be expelled from the halls, in order to secure a further peaceful event. In case of an expulsion, you do not have the right to enter the halls again or claim back the entrance fee.
  5. Please note that the bottles and products you bought at the exhibition stands are not destined for on site consumption and therefore this is prohibited.
  6. And remember „After Whisk(e)y driving risky!“. The Bremen Exhibition Centre is located right in the heart of the city and in direct neighbourhood to the main station with it’s public transport system. So the car may stay in the garage.

We appreciate your understanding and wish you a pleasant day with nice contacts, great spirits and a lot of joy.
