Info – 

From the Organisers –  The Dornoch Whisky Festival Grand Tasting is back for it’s 5th year! Five years! All thanks to you!

This year we’re adding even more exhibitors to fill our marquee with some of our returning favourites and a few new faces with a range of distilleries, independent bottlers and gins with a couple of special extras thrown in too that we can’t wait to share more details about as soon as we can.

The Grand Tasting ticket is not a free pour event and we take responsible drinking very serious, so it works on a voucher system whereby you purchase a ticket for £25 and receive a voucher card of 20 vouchers on the door. These vouchers are then exchanged for 10 ml pours of your choice on the day.

The exhibitors then choose their own voucher worth per dram, for example at the 2017 Dornoch Whisky Festival Grand Tasting, Benromach had their 10yo at one voucher per dram and their 35yo at 5 vouchers. You can buy more vouchers on the day but at the discretion of the bar staff and of course, you will be able to purchase products on the day through the Carnegie Whisky Cellars.

On top of this, you will get a Dornoch Whisky Festival goody bag which will include your own tasting glass and a few other goodies that will come in handy whilst at the festival!

We can’t wait to see you there!
