If you think you’re a bit of a whisky novice then don’t fear, as this year’s festival will introduce a ‘whisky baptism’, a special beginners tasting tour allowing you to reach ‘whisky heaven’ to the capital, with Q&A sessions with whisky god and goddesses including Scotch expert, Charles Maclean; Distell Master Blender, Kirstie McCallum; and Director of prestigious whisky society Keepers of the Quaich, Annabel Meikle.

Eddie Ludlow, Founder of The Whisky Lounge, said: “We are celebrating ten years of spreading the gospel of whisky and our sixth event in Edinburgh. Our mission is to shake-off any preconceptions people may have about our national drink and present whisky in a fun, laid-back way. This year’s event will be whisky heaven, with hundreds of different malts to try and the opportunity to meet some of the whisky-world’s most renowned experts.”

Exhibitors include: That Boutique-y Whisky Company; The Scotch Malt Whisky Society; The Glenrothes; Talisker; The Glenlivet; Tobermory; Ledaig; Bunnahabhain; Penderyn; Murray McDavid; The Dubliner; Berry Bros & Rudd and more.
