The Whisky Mash Festival is back and is offering aficionados the chance to sample offerings from a wide range of Scottish distilleries.
The annual event is dedicated to showcasing the very best from well-established Scotch whisky distilleries and new independent bottlers and has revealed a line-up that will have connoisseurs racing for tickets.
Visitors to the Whisky Mash Festival will be treated to exhibits and the latest tipples from Aultmore, The Balvenie, Black Bull, Chivas, Craigellachie, The Deveron, Dewar’s, Eden Mill, Glen Garioch, Glenfiddich, The Glenlivet, Murray McDavid, The Octave and Royal Brackla.
And for gin lovers, there will be Gin Bothy, el:gin and Glenwyvis on hand.
Now in its third year, the event, which hosts one session in the afternoon and one in the evening, has gained popularity year-on-year and is hotly anticipated to be a sell out at the city’s Douglas Hotel on Sunday May 28.
Paul West, Whisky Mash Festival coordinator and owner of popular local cigars, ale, scotch and coffee venue, CASC, said: “We are thrilled to announce such a fantastic line up for this year’s festival and proud to have the support of such a wide network of whisky brands, with more still to be unveiled.
“Ticket holders will be in for a fantastic event this year, with four master classes to be presented by some of our exhibitors.
“These will offer guests a unique insight into the flavours, distilling techniques and tastings of some rare, quality Scotch whiskies.
“As well as these specialist insights, we are looking forward to welcoming music performances throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
“While most people will be there to enjoy the drams on offer, there’s always a need to soak up the alcohol, so will also have some fantastic food on offer too.
“There’s nothing else quite like this in the area offering a specialist, up-close insight from the whisky distilleries themselves, so we are really looking forward to hosting another fantastic event and sharing it with around 600 like-minded whisky lovers in the area.”
