 Edinburgh Whisky Festival Masterclasses 

Masterclass Tickets now live!

It just wouldn’t be the Edinburgh Festival without a handful of truly outstanding masterclasses running in both sessions on Saturday.

This year we have two very different personalities from the world of whisky presenting two very different styles of masterclass, both of which are very exciting!

Due to space constraints, places in all classes are very limited. Our advice – book now!

Eddie Ludlow is the founder and Evangelist of The Whisky Lounge and is partly responsible for what you are enjoying today. He is also a Keeper of the Quaich, IWSC Judge and, most importantly, he loves his whisky!

Blair Bowman is the creator of ‘World Whisky Day’ which has successfully brought whisky-loving folks around the world together. He has also just published his first whisky book, The Pocket Guide to Whisky.

(please note a full session ticket is required to attend these classes, please quote your order number when booking) If you have not already bought a festival ticket please head to the main festival page.



The Great Whisky Experiment

1pm & 6pm £5

Join Blair Bowman, founder of World Whisky Day and author of the recently published Pocket Guide to Whisky: Featuring the WhiskyTubeMap for the Great Whisky Experiment at the Edinburgh Whisky Festival 2017.

Your senses will be confused, your preconceptions will be challenged and your taste buds will be intrigued. The bold and the brave who attend this unique experiment will experience the whiskies selected for this tasting in new and memorable ways.




Eddie 01Eddie’s Wee Stash Eddie Ludlow

2pm & 7pm £10

Eddie, as you can imagine, has quite a stash of whiskies at his disposal. Normally he is quite happy to taste away, on his own, in the safe confines of his home or office. However, we have persuaded him to bring 4 special whiskies to the show today and share them with a handful of you. All we can say is, you lucky people…
