ABOUT

The National Whisky Festival of Scotland.
Scotland's definitive whisky festival.

We want to celebrate Scotland's national drink, and the fundamental effect it has on the nation's culture. We want to celebrate with you.

Our events generally feature 30-50 exhibitors from some the most exciting names in whisky, which generally means there's more different drams in the room than one could responsibly try! There's never an extra charge for tasting - they're all included in the ticket price - If you like to explore different tipples then this truly is the event for you.

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 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? We like to advise that there's always going to be something for everyone, as the character of the drink can change so drastically from region to region. Give it a try!
