HAAM Christmas Wine & Whisky Party

The Henley Alumni Association Malta Network is organizing your Christmas party in the form of a casual dinner set around an extensive Wine & Whisky tasting session. This will be held at the Red October outlet in Qormi where premium wines, whiskies, and delicacies will be served throughout the evening. Red October will also be offering special and exclusive deals to our attendees on the night – something rare for the alcohol industry during Christmas time!

Don’t like Wine or Malt Whisky? Worry not! You can still attend and network as we’ll have an open bar on standby for vodka, gin, aperitifs, Averna, and other liqueurs and cognacs – in this eventuality please advise us beforehand since we need to pre-book the number of people preferring this option.
