Scotland's most exciting celebration of all things uisge-beatha
After a successful three years with events in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Paisley, this year The National Whisky Festival of Scotland is taking things further afield with a visit to the wonderful city of Aberdeen. And we can't wait!
This time around, the newly refurbished Aberdeen Music Hall will be playing host on Saturday 14 September, 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 30 exhibitors from some the most exciting names in whisky and with over 100 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 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!
