Each year in Scotland there are celebrations of all things whisky…
Kicking off in May, there’s the Highland Whisky festival, Spirit of Speyside festival, the Campbeltown Malts festival, and The Islay Festival (better known as Feis Ile). A true celebration of malts, music, community and camaraderie. The Society has been integral to these festivals as a major partner for years and bottles some of the most incredible examples of whisky to celebrate the fact.
As you might have heard by now, all these spectacular festivals have been cancelled or postponed for the year in light of Covid-19 and community safety. That includes the regrettable decision we had to make to cancel all the member gatherings for the festival releases across Australia. That doesn’t mean however that we can’t enjoy the festivals the best we can from the comfort and safety of our homes!
We’re proud to announce that for May Outturn launching Friday 1st May 2020 at midday, we’re releasing both the entire selection of festival single cask bottlings available to us, AND another virtual tasting for our members with a festival sample set available to grab in the Outturn. Five carefully-selected 30ml samples of festival casks ranging from Speyside, to Campbeltown, to Islay, all in one pack.
The festival virtual tasting will take place on Friday 29th May, 7pm live on YouTube and Facebook, or you can watch it anytime later at your leisure.
Includes 5 x 30ml drams of the following special release festival bottlings:
Cask 35.254 Pure decadence
Cask 7.233 A syrupy sweet tale of romance
