Inverness Whisky Festival 2014

Inverness Whisky Festival is back at Bogbain Farm for its fourth year this April and is delighted to be part of the Scotland Homecoming 2014 celebrations.

The festival takes place on the 4th and 5th of April and kicks off the festival season perfectly with a tour, tasting, music, food, and dancing!

Friday 4th April

The festival commences with a tour around some of Inverness’ best-known and oldest pubs. The tour will encourage guests to submerse themselves in the history of our nations drink, the music and the local craic! Bruce MacGregor, founder of Blazin Fiddles (Folk Band of the Year, 2013), will lead the troops as they enjoy a selection of fine drams and some impassioned story telling. The evening culminates in the award-winning Hootanannys where guests will enjoy a traditional Scottish knee’s up courtesy of Bruce and friends.

Tickets cost £30 and include your tasting glass and a dram at each stop.

Saturday 5th April

Inverness Whisky Festival exhibition at Bogbain begins at noon on Saturday 5th 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 5pm (last pour 1645 hours) and tickets cost £25 (master class tickets sold separately), which includes complimentary drams and your tasting glass.

To finish off the festival we invite you to join us for some Scottish music, courtesy of the Bruce MacGregor Ceilidh Band. After a few drams and a bit of dutch courage we expect to see everyone on the dance floor!

A combination ticket can be purchased for £50, which allows access to all three events.

Date: 4th/5th April 2014

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.
