Whisky fans will be thrilled to hear that MAXIM, Sandton’s premier whisky and cigar lounge, is offering monthly whisky tastings to educate enthusiasts on some of the world’s favourite whisky brands.

Held on the last Thursday of every month, a whisky ambassador takes patrons through their varietals, talking through the history, nose and palate of each one. Light canapes are served from the neighbouring Maximillien Restaurant to ensure that mind, belly and mouth are fully satiated during the experience.

MAXIM is an intimate whisky and cigar lounge cozily set under the spiraling staircase of the DAVINCI Hotel & Suites’ reception area. The space boasts floor-to-ceiling displays of some of the world’s finest whiskies, cognacs and other premium spirits. Adorned with leather lounge suites and decadent armchairs, it makes for the perfect spot to sit back, relax and soak up the luxury on offer. Some of the quirky things that make MAXIM special are as follows…

  • A glass wall of Whisky Keeps showcasing an impressive private collection, available to their owners at any time they would like to drop in and have a drink with a friend or colleague.
  • A walk-in humidor with an extensive cigar collection which can be enjoyed in the smoking section of the lounge.
  • A variety of tasting mats and access to our knowledgeable barmen at any time.
  • The option to smoke any whisky of your choice. With a variety of smoky flavours available, this makes for an interesting, theatrical experience.
  • A newly launched cocktail list is available for those looking for options. Guests can choose to smoke these too if they wish.
  • If peckish, guests can order deliciously crafted dishes off the menu of the highly rated Maximillien Restaurant next door.

All of the above makes MAXIM Lounge the ideal venue for intimate private events, bachelor parties, business meetings and paired dinners. To book your space or find out more about the monthly whisky tastings, please visit the Legacy Hotels & Resorts website at www.legacyhotels.co.za


A wonderfully wicked world of whisky awaits.
