AQUAVITAE Mülheim an der Ruhr

| Spirits fair for private customers and restaurants | regional Fair

The AQUAVITAE in Mülheim an der Ruhr is the largest spirits trade show for private customers and the hospitality industry in North Rhine-Westphalia. Every October, it opens its doors to welcome enthusiasts of fine spirits and industry professionals. The event is organized by Rolf Kaspar GmbH, a renowned company specializing in wines and spirits..

"AQUAVITAE" is Latin for "Water of Life". This term has often been used to describe spirits, especially distilled beverages. Many cultures and languages have similar expressions for alcohol that allude to the concept of the "Water of Life". For instance, in Gaelic, whisky is frequently referred to as "uisge beatha", which also means "Water of Life". It's an apt name for an exposition dedicated to the presentation and celebration of distilled spirits.

At the heart of the expo lies a vast range of spirits: from whisky, gin, and fruit brandies to cognac, vodka, and tequila. Numerous exhibitors seize the opportunity to showcase their latest products and innovations, establishing direct contact with visitors.

A particular emphasis of the show is on information and communication. Attendees have the chance to learn about the latest trends and developments in the spirits industry and engage in direct conversations with the producers. Additionally, tastings are offered where various spirits can be sampled.

A highlight of the expo is the Whisky Dinner, held on the evening before the main event at the Essener Hof Hotel. This dinner is entirely moderated in English and provides an exclusive opportunity to delve deeper into the world of whisky.

The impressive backdrop of the Mülheim City Hall lends a special charm to the expo. This historic building, located in the heart of the city, serves as an ideal venue for such a prestigious event. Accompanied by music, an ambiance that encourages lingering, discovering, and interacting unfolds.

In conclusion, the AQUAVITAE trade show in Mülheim an der Ruhr is a must-visit for all spirit aficionados and professionals in the hospitality sector. It bridges tradition with innovation, offering a unique experience in the captivating world of distilled spirits.
