Let’s drink a whiskey!
Jolly Jackers are a six piece band with three lasses and three lads that hail from Dunaújváros. They were only formed on New Years Day 2013 and have risen in popularity and critical acclaim every year and show no sign of letting up. Their debut release was the five track EP Call The Captain which came out just in time for St Patrick’s Day 2014. They followed this up with their debut album Sobriety in January 2015 which again was mostly penned by the band themselves. They released their second LP in March 2017, called Blood Sweat and Beer and the band is currently recorded their new album, Out of the blue, release in April 2018. Now they have more than 14.000 fans on Facebook. The Jolly Jackers have played in Austria, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia and Switzerland. They are going on tour again to introduce their new album, all over Hungary and Europe. Second time in Netherlands.
Tokaj Wines in the Netherlands
The venue was the cosy bar area of the hotel. The attendees were a mix of Dutch wine experts and importers, gastronomic journalists and representatives of the catering industry (Horeca in Dutch) among them was Mr Merlijn Keijzer, Manager of VIP Lounge Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, Ms Helma de Veer from a company called De Freule’, which specializes in (wine) gifts to business acquaintances.
The owner of Hungarian Corner restaurant in The Hague Mr Marco van den Boomgaard said: “We only recently also created a winebar so that our guests can try all kinds of Magyar wines.”
H.E Mr. András Kocsis, Ambassador of Hungary, opened the session saying: “By targeting all Dutch companies which sell wine we hope to gain more recognition of Hungarian wines in order to generate more sales in The Netherlands.
We have undertaken a very exiting task with my colleagues this evening, because contrary to the previous practice when we introduced selections from different wines regions, we have now focused on one particular wine region Tokaj.”
