Ancient, distinct and varied - there are so many reasons why whisky should be celebrated. Named uisge beatha in Gaelic, the 'water of life', it has been produced here in Scotland for generations.

So, we decided to dedicate a whole entire month to our iconic national drink. May is officially Whisky Month in Scotland, so pour yourself a dram!

Join in the merriment with our packed calendar of excellent events throughout the month, including whisky festivals, tastings and more. And don't forget to share your whisky photos with us using the hashtag #WhiskyMonth.
