The London Whisky Weekender returns FOR 2016 AND we are all set for our best year yet!


We've got MORE whisky to taste, MORE food to eat and MORE fun to be had!

This will be THE whisky tasting of the year in London, featuring the likes of Amrut, Kavalan, Nikka, Balcones, Talisker, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Macallan, Highland Park, Kilbeggan, Bowmore, Auchentoshan, Yamasaki, New York Distilling Company, Smooth Ambler Bourbon, That Boutique-y Whisky Company, Penderyn, Compass Box, Speyside Distillers, Dalmore… and many many more!


Here’s what each session ticket includes:
  • Entry to one session, (either Friday 6-10pm, Saturday 12pm-4pm or 5pm-9pm OR Sunday 12pm-4pm)
  • ALL WHISKIES SAMPLED IN MAIN HALL (not including ‘under the counter’ drams)
  • Glencairn tasting glass
  • A bottle of water (for obvious reasons)
  • The Festival Guide

How the festival works

Simply approach any of the exhibitor stands, ask politely for a dram and you shall receive a tasty glass of whisky (it really is that simple) Every exhibitor should know their whiskies inside out and it’s well worth taking advantage of this knowledge. They’ll be able to answer all and any whisky related questions you may have and will happily explain why their whisky is so damn tasty.

Under the counter drams

The vast majority of whiskies on show are available to taste within your ticket price.

However, ‘Under the Counter’ Token drams simply allow you access to some of the rare and more exclusive whiskies in the festival.
