Whisky Festivals

NEXT EVENT

Life as an aspiring whisky drinker or a more experienced ‘drammer’ would be much duller without a visit to at least one of our Whisky Festivals. For a very reasonable ticket price, you are able to access the professionals who put the stuff together and sell it, and of course you have the opportunity to taste a huge range of whiskies from all over the world…
