Description

Who would have thought it's been a year since the Whisky Lounge wagon rolled into town!

The_Whisky_Weekend_2017_128_4251If you haven't been to one of our legendary festivals before you are in for a treat! If you have then you know what to expect, only this year we are back bigger and better. As well as the usual shenanigans, we have a few more surprises for you....

You'll get to sample the best home-grown whiskies from Scotland, as well as all corners of the globe; The Edinburgh Whisky Festival attracts the finest distillers from as far afield as Taiwan, India, Japan and the USA. Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall The_Whisky_Weekend_2017_099_4192receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple!). Every exhibitor knows their whiskies inside out and it's well worth taking advantage of this knowledge.
You can also sign up to masterclasses and experience some rare ‘under the counter’ drams.

Sessions and tickets

We deliberately set specific session times so the festival doesn't get overcrowded, meaning you can sip and swallow at your own pace.

Saturday 15th June 2019

1st Session: 12pm-4pm

2nd Session: 5pm-9pm


Ash-Coctail-picClasses & Workshops

As you’d expect, we’re running our famous blending workshops and cocktails masterclasses.

Under the Counter Dram tokens

The vast majority of whiskies at the festival are available to taste within your ticket price. However, we recommend you take the opportunity to sample some of the rarer, more exclusive whiskies by purchasing Under the Counter dram tokens on the day.

Show your Under the Counter dram token to an exhibitor and wait their nod of approval as they reveal their secret stash.

There are several tiers of tokens which can be purchased on the day, and exchanged for different levels of whisky:

  • White tokens £6 each
  • Orange tokens £10 each
  • Black tokens £20 each

The Festival Shop

As in previous years we will have a retail shop in the show to take care of all your purchasing needs and selling every whisky that you will find in the show.

Exhibitors...

...will keep appearing here at regular intervals, please keep checking back to see what distilleries are in store for you!


The boring bit

Please, please ensure you buy tickets for the right session. We set strict limits on the number of tickets for each session so visitors can enjoy their whisky at their own pace. We are unable to swap tickets on the day. But, we’re mostly all human, so if you do buy the wrong session by accident, give us a call or email as soon as possible and we’ll do our best to sort out the muddle.

To book your place at a masterclass, you will need a separate ticket for each. We add more details about the masterclasses before the event, so be sure to check back regularly.

Your ticket will be emailed to you as we do not send out paper tickets. If you are purchasing tickets as a gift for somebody else and you would like PDF tickets emailed to you, please email info@thewhiskylounge.com, stating the name(s) of the recipients.

Please note: ‘last pour’ is always 15 minutes prior to the session end time. This is non-negotiable!
