This event is staged by The Whisky Lounge at the AECC in one of the smaller halls.
It has stalls around the perimeter where Exhibitors (bottlers and distilleries alike) set up their wares.
The entrance fee includes a free event Glencairn tasting glass and you have access to all drinks except for " Under-the-counter" bottles.
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.
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. There are two tiers of tokens available which can be purchased on the day.
A very good day out with many people with vast and limited knowledge to mix with and have a chat about your favourite tipple.
