In all the years I’ve been shooting events in Dubai (since 2009), I’ve only ever been tipped once. Top floor of Burj Khalifa covering Pernod Ricards’ record breaking event. Part of their PR exercise was to be the highest whisky tasting to have ever taken place. No better place than Burj Khalifa! Chivas Regal was the lucky whisky with Colin Scott, the master blender at the help of this tasteful and quirky private event.
By the way, this Indian gentleman tipped me 500 AED – pretty great tip – equivalent for about £100 – he must have really liked the experience – or very drunk!!
