A whisky festival with a twist! After a sold out event in 2023, Edinburgh's Whisky Festival is returning in 2024 & will be delivered through the organiser's unique strands of Whisky, Heritage and Wellness.
The Whisky strand celebrates Scotland's national drink through the attendance of the best distilleries, independent bottlers and other whisky related exhibitors from across Scotland and beyond.
The Heritage strand focusses on bringing the history of whisky production back to life through an exhibition as well as live, interactive coopering demonstrations allowing attendees to get involved in building a barrel.
As part of the Wellness strand, Edinburgh's Whisky Festival we will be partnering with the inspirational My Name'5 Doddie Foundation to help raise awareness of the incurable condition, MND and raise funds for the charity.
The festival runs over two 3.5hr our sessions and within that time, ticket holders will:
Sample from a range of hundreds of whiskies from around Scotland and beyond (all samples included in ticket price).
Hear directly from the distilleries and bottlers about their unique whiskies and the stories behind them.
View and participate in a live demonstration of a whisky cask being assembled.
Experience some of Scotland's key whisky heritage from the early 1700s.
Enjoy a snack from the Murrayfield Hospitality team.
Grab a drink from the fully stocked bar in the President's Suite.
Purchase your favourite tipples from our retailer, Woodwinters Wines & Whiskies
With over 55 exhibitors in attendance, Director Serena Lindsay said:
"We are extremely excited to welcome ticket holders to Murrayfield for Edinburgh's Whisky Festival on Saturday 5th October 2024. We have a passion not only for whisky as our national drink, but for the journey and stories of where it has originated and want to deliver an event that allows people to immerse themselves in all aspects of the whisky industry.
A key aspect of our festival approach is our desire to support a charitable cause, and there are none more critical currently than the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.
My Name's Doddie Foundation ambassador and former Scotland international, Kenny Logan, said:
"My Name's Doddie Foundation are delighted to partnering with Edinburgh's Whisky Festival in October and over the coming years to provide a platform to both raise awareness and funds for the incurable disease. The event is a great fit for the foundation and I know Doddie himself would have loved to have socialised at an event like this, particularly at Murrayfield - He loved his whisky"
