Inverness Whisky Festival 2013

Established in 2011, and having built a reputation as a successful event, the third Inverness Whisky Festival is due to be held on Friday 5th & Saturday 6th April 2013.

The festival is based at Bogbain Farm, a rustic 19th century farm building just 3 miles south of Inverness, which was awarded Best Unusual Venue at the 2012 Scottish Event Awards, and Venue of the Year 2012 at the Scots Trad Music Awards.

In keeping with the venue’s flair for doing things a bit differently, the Inverness Whisky Festival aims to give its guests the opportunity to not only experience some of Scotland’s finest malt whiskies, but to also absorb the culture that goes hand in hand with Scotland’s national drink: the music, the food, the history, the craic.

Whisky Tour

The evening of Friday 5th April will see guests led on a whisky-fuelled journey through the streets of Inverness, visiting some of the city’s oldest pubs, and being entertained on their journey by some of Scotland’s finest traditional musicians. The Whisky Tour begins at 7pm and tickets cost £30, which includes 7 different drams, nibbles and entrance to the Inverness Whisky Festival ceilidh.

Whisky Exhibition

Giving you time to shake off the effects of the night before, the Inverness Whisky Festival exhibition at Bogbain begins at noon on Saturday 6th April. It’s a chance to sample an abundance of malt whiskies, and to learn from the masters how to drink, savour, and most importantly, enjoy your whisky.

With live music, talks, master classes, and good Scottish food, it’s a feast for all the senses.

The Whisky Exhibition runs from noon until 6pm and tickets cost £25, which includes complimentary drams. Tickets for the master classes will be sold separately.
