Hop along to Aviemore for Food, Drink and Music
North Hop, the food and drink event, arrives in Aviemore on Saturday 25th February at the Macdonald Aviemore Resort.
Channel 4’s 2015 Shed of the Year winner Walter Micklethwait is launching his brand new locally distilled First Edition Inshriach Speyside Dry Gin at the festival, inviting festival go-ers to sample it in perfect serves and cocktails from a rustic gin truck fashioned from a vintage horse box.
There will also be Poco Prosecco, a cute vintage Italian Piaggio Ape van parked up in the resort’s Osprey Arena all set to dispense fizz on tap.
Limited edition collaboration products include a new Festival Brew from Fife-based St Andrews Brewing Co, a Festival Cider from Dunbar’s own Thistly Cross Cider and a Festival Gin from Dunnet Bay Distillers in Caithness.
North Hop Aviemore will take place at the Macdonald Aviemore Resort in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park for one day only during two separate sessions; one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
Saturday 25 February 2017 – Afternoon Session – 12pm till 5pm
