It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this is a must for any whisky fan, fanatic or even whisky newcomer.

In November 2013 we ran our first whisky festival in Aberdeen. We brought the whisky, Aberdeen brought the atmosphere, and what a day it was. It was so good that in 2015 we came back for another round and Aberdeen didn’t disappoint.

So now over 2 years down the track since our inaugural Aberdeen Whisky Fest, we’re heading back again to flood one of the cities most iconic venues with whisky! After the huge success of both the 2013 and 2015 shows we’re back for a 3rd round, here’s hoping this will be the best year yet!

Here’s what each ticket includes:

  • Entry to the festival
  • Glencairn tasting glass
  • A bottle of water (for obvious purposes)
  • The Festival Guide
  • ALL WHISKIES SAMPLED IN MAIN HALL (not including ‘under the counter’ drams)

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. We have two tiers of tokens available which can be purchased on the day

White Tokens £2.50 each.

Black Tokens £5 each.

 The Festival Shop.

We’re delighted to welcome back Nick and the team from the tremendous Aberdeen Whisky Shop. They’ll be on hand all day to take care of all your whisky buying needs.


Will be announced in the coming weeks.


Will keep appearing here at regular intervals, please keep checking back to see what whiskies are in store!



Please note:

Last Pour’ is always 15 minutes prior to the session end time. As it always has been and always will be.

We do not send out ‘paper’ tickets. Once you have booked, you will receive an email confirmation and your name will be added to our event register for entry on the door.

If they are a gift for somebody else and you would like some nice PDF tickets emailed to you, please email info@thewhiskylounge.com, stating the names of the recipients.
