Acolytes of the water of life gathered in a little corner of Rishon LeZion on Tuesday evening to explore some of the most famous - and not so famous - brands of the golden liquid.
The event was part of a month-long celebration of whisky (and whiskey!) by Israeli drinks chain Bana Mashkaot, which will be hosting further events around the country for the next two weeks.
Fans of the firewater can sample 30 different varieties from all over the world, discover their unique qualities and origin stories, and how to get the most enjoyment out of each.
Regular tipplers can also replenish their stocks with discounted purchases.
For the more non-traditional aficionados, there was also a chance to shake it up with a whisky cocktail, courtesy of the Southern Comfort brand.
The event also sees the launch of a new whisky from leading brand Paul John, which is unveiling its new single malt from the New World Distillery, which opened in 2012 in Goa, India.
The brand, which specializes in high quality single malts, has won several prestigious awards in international whiskey competitions – including Asian Whisky of the Year - and is sold in more than 60 countries.
Even Ron Swanson would be impressed.
The celebration will continue in Jerusalem on January 15, Petah Tikva on January 21, Kiryat Bialik on January 22 and Be'er Sheva on January 28.
