As ever, accompanying the drams will be plenty of celebration of the best of Scottish culture, with whisky related arts, books, crafts and a fantastic programme of live music to get your feet tapping! Delicious food will be on offer from local restaurants and street food hawkers, and there'll even be a wee craft beer bar where you can wet your whistle between drams. Our friends the Good Spirits Company will be providing the on-site bottle shop, allowing you to take home a bottle (or two) of any magical liquid you've discovered on the tasting floor (at a discounted price!).

For the bargain ticket price of just £25, you will receive the following at no extra cost:

- entrance to one of the 3.5-hour sessions
- access to over 50 whiskies on our tasting floor
- two £5 discount vouchers to be redeemed against purchases at the bottle shop
- a complimentary lineup of fantastic live music
- your own NWF branded Glencairn crystal nosing glass to use on the day and take home with you
- access to masterclasses within your session (ticketed separately)
- official festival programme
