From their website:
Once again we’ve teamed up with those great guys and gals at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and we’re gearing up to put on an absolute belter of a day. A real summer celebration of all things whisky, proving once and for all that whisky really can be a drink for all seasons.
As usual we’ll have a whole carnival of whiskies in tow but here is a little taste of what will be on offer at The Edinburgh Whisky Solstice…
Amazing whisky from all over Scotland and the world (and plenty of it) amazing food, a smattering of delicious ale and a light dusting of cocktails all in the stunning surroundings of Edinburgh’s beautiful (and normally private) Queen St Gardens.
Yes indeed this will be a day to remember, oh and did we mention that this year we will be outside? That’s right! Outside! Here’s hoping for good weather.
Here’s what each ticket includes…
- Entry to the Whisky Solstice 12-5pm
- A Glencairn tasting glass
- A bottle of water (for obvious purposes)
- The Festival Guide
- ALL WHISKIES SAMPLED IN THE MAIN AREA (not including ‘under the counter’ drams)
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. More details to follow.
MASTERCLASSES – To be be announced soon.
