Whisky Trail
 
http://www.appenzell.ch/index.php?id=4305&L=1


Tried it two years ago, loved it! Probably going with some mates again this year. Whisky and Yodel, my two passions!


However good their whisky, it will never beat Scottish Whisky, though...sorry Appenzell, we love you, but we love Scotland that wee bit more!:p

Sounds good, but am I missing something? Is this a one-off event or just a general promotion throughout summer? I can't see any info on the website. Or maybe the mobile version hides it from me; do I have to disturb the passenger next to me on the train by watching the video to learn more?

I don't know if it's all year round, but it certainly is around in Spring and Summer, the whole time.

Is 150 CHF for a trek and a tasting not a little expensive?

16.67 per tasting (1dl) along the way. They are hardly getting in the spirit (ignore the pun) of things and encouraging tourism. Its only Swiss salary earners that could realistically consider this trek with the tastings

To buy 3 times 1/2 liter bottles in a presentation box is cheaper on their own web site

I got my way round it: bought a few miniature bottles at Appenzell brewery then knocked a few down when I did a summit...and would come down in the cable cars! A much cheaper option.

Sounds like something I might enjoy when I am over 50...
