Running over two 3.5 hour sessions, EWF is proud to be incorporating all three strands of their philosophy into the event: Whisky, Heritage and Wellness.
Our Whisky strand celebrates Scotland's national drink through the attendance of dozens of distilleries and independent bottlers, whilst also showcasing other whisky related products from across Scotland and beyond.
Our Heritage strand focuses on bringing the history of whisky production in Scotland to life through an exhibition, as well as a live interactive coopering demonstration in partnership with Diageo's Cambus Cooperage.
Our Wellness strand will be supporting the inspirational My Name'5 Doddie Foundation to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease and to raise funds for the charity.
We are delighted to be delivering this event in partnership with our sponsor Bevvy.com. As the ultimate digital companion for whisky lovers, we are excited to be harnessing the technology of the Bevvy app to further enhance the festival experience for all attendees.

With over 45 exhibitors in attendance, Director Serena Lindsay said:
"We are extremely excited to welcome ticket holders to BT Murrayfield for Edinburgh's Whisky Festival on Saturday 14th October.
Our unique approach to festival delivery in terms of Whisky, Heritage and Wellness really struck a chord with people in Clackmannanshire and EWF promises to be even better . We have a passion not only for whisky as a drink, but for the journey and stories of where it has originated. We want to deliver an event that allows people to immerse themselves in all aspects of the whisky industry.
A key aspect of our festivals (through our Wellbeing strand) is our desire to support a charitable cause, and there are none more critical currently than the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. EWF will be partnering with My Name'5 Doddie Foundation to provide a platform to both raise awareness and funds for the charity".
Co-founder of Bevvy.com, Laurie Black said:
"Having previously partnered with Slanj Events for the hugely popular Clackmannanshire's Whisky Festival, we are thrilled to be working with them again to deliver an incredible experience for all attendees in what we feel is a perfect venue: BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh.
Our mission has always been to make whisky more welcoming and engaging, and the technology that we have incorporated into our app makes it the perfect festival guide and the perfect way to explore and navigate the world of whisky. Edinburgh's Whisky Festival gives us not only a chance to modernise the whisky festival experience, but is a welcome opportunity to share drams with friends old and new!"
