Description

The one and only and original Manchester Whisky Festival is back!

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this is a must for any whisky fan, fanatic or even whisky newcomer.

Not only will you have the chance to taste the best of homegrown whiskies from all over Scotland, but we will also have a good selection of whiskies from all over the world for your delectation.

Throw in a smattering of tremendous workshops and ‘Under the Counter’ drams and the great surroundings of the Town Hall, and you have a fantastic day out on the cards.

As always you also have a choice of sessions in order to ease the crowds slightly and make your life more comfortable!

Friday 1st September: 6-10pm

Saturday 2nd September Early Session: 12am-4pm

Saturday 2nd September Late Session: 5pm-9pm.

Taster Tickets – these are single tickets allowing entry to the festival for the last two hours of any given session.

Early Entry Tickets – these are single tickets allowing entry to the festival half an hour before the official door opening time, allowing you to get a head start on your favourite drams! (info on how to buy coming soon)

Here’s what each taster ticket includes:

How the festival works

Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple) Every exhibitor should know their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer all and any whisky related questions you may have and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.


Under the counter drams

The vast majority of whiskies on show are available to taste within your ticket price.

However, ‘Under the Counter’ Token drams simply allow you access to some of the rare and more exclusive whiskies in the festival. We have two tiers of tokens available which can be purchased on the day

White Tokens £3 each.

Orange Token £5 each.

Black Tokens £10 each.


The Festival Shop

As in previous years we have our friends from The Whisky Exchange 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 whiskies are in store!
