THE NATIONAL WHISKY FESTIVAL

Scotland's most exciting celebration of all things uisge-beatha

Following a successful inaugural run at The Spree Festival in Paisley this October, this year's third National Whisky Festival at Celtic Connections is set to be the biggest and most ambitious instalment to date. And we can't wait!

This time around, popular Glasgow events complex SWG3 will be playing host on Saturday 26 January, offering two fantastic three and a half hour sessions of unique whisky tastings, incredible live music and whisky related crafts, with plenty of delicious and hearty local scran to see you right.

Featuring over 40 exhibitors from some the most exciting names in whisky and with over 130 different whiskies to try - all of which are included in the ticket price - this is truly a whisky lover's paradise.

But don't be fooled, however, this is no stuffy, suit and tie affair. From seasoned palettes to adventurous newcomers, everyone is welcome. You won't be sniffed at for enjoying whisky your way, nor will you have to pay through the nose to sample some of the finest whiskies the world has to offer.

This is about having fun, coming in from the cold and celebrating our national drink together in great company. And while you don't have to wear even an inch of tartan - we wouldn't say no to a kilt or two!

Don't like Whisky? Never tried it? Have no fear, NWF has got you covered too. Our newly-added craft beer bar and selection of gins, bourbons and other spirits will be more than sufficient to keep even the most stubborn drinkers happy. However, we'd always encourage everyone to have a wee taste if they've never tried it - especially the day after Burns Night!
