Edinburgh Whisky Festival 2017
June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Our 5th year in Edinburgh!
This years Edinburgh Whisky Festival we’re heading back to the Assembly Rooms on George Street. This iconic Georgian venue has long been at the heart of Edinburgh hosting thousands of events from Royal banquets to film festivals, but for this day in June it will play host to Scotland’s most iconic drink – whisky!
As in previous years you can expect to see a fantastic display of whiskies from Scotland and around the world, we’re also working on some sensational masterclasses which will leave even the most seasoned whisky drinker astounded and amazed.
As always you also have a choice of sessions in order to ease the crowds slightly and make your life more comfortable!
Saturday 17th June Early Session: 12pm-4pm
Saturday 17th June Late Session: 5pm-9pm.
Here’s what each ticket includes:
- Entry to the festival
- Glencairn tasting glass
- A bottle of water (for obvious purposes)
- The Festival Guide
- ALL WHISKIES SAMPLED IN MAIN HALL
How the festival works
Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple) Every exhibitor should know their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer all and any whisky related questions you may have and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.
Under the counter drams
The vast majority of whiskies on show are available to taste within your ticket price.
However, ‘Under the Counter’ Token drams simply allow you access to some of the rare and more exclusive whiskies in the festival. We have two tiers of tokens available which can be purchased on the day
White Tokens £3 each.
Orange Tokens £5 each.
Black Tokens £10 each.
The Festival Shop
Will keep appearing here at regular intervals, please keep checking back to see what whiskies are in store!
