During the Year of Food & Drink Scotland 2015, the country will be celebrating its fantastic natural larder – and rightly so. And what better way to celebrate than with a dram of the finest Scotch whisky? May is Whisky Month when we pay homage to our national drink, or 'uisge beatha' as we call it – the ‘water of life’. Join in the merriment with our packed calendar of excellent events throughout the month, including whisky festivals, tastings and more.
