From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival
02 May, 2013 - 06 May, 2013
Dufftown, Banffshire, Scotland
This Festival celebrating the whisky, food and the heritage and culture of Speyside is launched with an opening dinner at Benromach Distillery.
The Festival is a must for whisky enthusiasts, as several distilleries in and around Dufftown that are not normally open to the public, will open their doors to the general public, and invite them to tour the facilities and sample their products.
The world-famous fine malts of Speyside are available from a wide range of distilleries, which can all be reached by a series of dedicated mini-bus tours. The daunting "Seven Stills Tour" visits all of Dufftown's distilleries on a single trip, and visitors are offered a dram at each and every one.
The Whisky Fair offers an array exhibits from distillers, independent bottlers and liqueur makers enabling whisky enthusiasts to taste and buy an impressive range of malts under one roof.
