About The National Whisky Festival

Scotland’s most exciting whisky festival ups sticks this July to Edinburgh after the phenomenal sell out inaugural event which took place during Glasgow’s Celtic Connections Festival in January.

On July 22nd this year, 1,350 uisge-beatha fans will descend upon The Edinburgh Corn Exchange for seven hours to celebrate the national drink, its inner workings and its place within Scottish culture.

Your ticket will give you access to one of the two 3.5 hour sessions where you will be able to taste whisky at over 40 stands and experience an exciting programme of live music at no extra charge. What’s more, we will have an extensive programme of additional masterclasses for those wishing to be truly immersed in a particular expression or five!

Along with the ticket, you’ll also receive your own Glencairn crystal nosing glass to take home, along with a £5 voucher to spend at our bottle shop on the day against selected whiskies.

Lest we forget, the inclusion of the best in local fare food stalls to compliment your drams.

Not even a whisky fan? Doesn’t matter! Our Glasgow event in January won many uisge-beatha converts!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The National Whisky Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
