Following its debut in 2012, the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash will be returning on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May. Bringing the wonderful world of whisky to the masses in new and innovative ways, the two-day event attracted over 2,000 visitors last year – intriguing purists and tempting new drinkers alike.
With brands like Glenfiddich, AnCnoc, The Macallan and Highland Park set to headline the event, there will be a huge array of top-drawer drams on offer. To celebrate its 30th birthday, Harviestoun Brewery will also be revealing its latest whisky inspired brew.
Designed to help audiences to get to know whisky in novel ways, a number of interactive experiences are also planned. ‘We wanted to create an event with a difference – something that would excite whisky aficionados but also attract new drinkers’, says Scott Martin, co-founder of the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash.
Martin is secretive about exactly what’s on offer, but Glenfiddich are set to return with Warehouse 47 – their interactive virtual warehouse that lets ticket holders explore the inner workings of a distillery. Deanston, meanwhile, will take guests back in time with a vintage photo wall, dressing them as distillery workers from days of old, before they are transported back into the 21st century with demonstrations of the latest techniques in molecular mixology.
The Edinburgh Whisky Stramash will be held at The Surgeon’s Hall on 25th & 26th May 2013. Tickets cost £26. For more information visit thewhiskystramash.com. For the latest news follow @whiskystramash on twitter or follow them on Facebook at facebook.com/thewhiskystramash.
